Halmstads vs Joenkoepings Soedra: Prediction
Jonkopings are unquestionably motivated after their recent success, but the morale boost could backfire if they underestimate the opponents. After all, Halmstads are unbeaten in the last three matches on the home turf, and netting more than a goal won’t be easy for Jonkopings. Yet another stalemate is a realistic outcome of this match – both teams are lacking composure and determination, hence picking a draw is a smart choice.
