Halmstad vs Sirius
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Saturday, 12th August 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Orjans Vall.
Halmstad will come into the weekend’s Allsvenskan fixture with Sirius in high spirits after a demolishing 6-1 home win over Jonkopings Sodra last Saturday.
The hosts narrowed the gap to the 14th-placed GIF Sundsvall (relegation playoffs spot) to only three points and they hope to build on the impressive attacking display in the 19th round outing against the fourth-placed Sirius.
Igor Krulj was just thrilled to see his team netting six goals to mark the third consecutive game without a defeat.
The hosts have been especially impressive in the first half when they notched four goals (two of which came from Johan Oremo).
The Japanese midfielder Kosuke Kinoshita has been especially inspired as he produced three assists.
Sirius have been one of the best surprises of the season in the early stages of the top flight of the Swedish football.
However, the league’s newcomers seem to be losing the touch with the top three teams, especially after the painful home loss to AIK (1-4) last Sunday.
Halmstad vs Sirius: Head to head
Sirius have completely dominated this match-up historically as they have won each of their previous four head to head meetings with Halmstad.
Each of the mentioned wins were by a single goal marking which makes Sirius -1 handicap a decent betting option for this one.
Halmstad vs Sirius: Prediction
The hosts will come in the game in a much better mood after last weekend’s fixtures, but do they have the quality to clinch their first ever win over Sirius?
We’d rather suggest goals bets as the game can easily go either way.
