Hammarby vs Hacken
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Sunday, 6th August 2017
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Tele2 Arena, Stockholm.
The two mid table sides will meet at Tele2 Arena in Stockholm as Hammarby face Hacken. The visitors are only one point ahead of the home team, so grabbing a victory would be a significant asset for both sides.
Hammarby are yet to record back-to-back victories this season. Their form fails to recognize any pattern – in the last five games, they were victorious twice while being beaten in the remaining three.
However, Tele2 Arena is a fortress when Hammarby is a host (since they share the venue with Djurgarden). In 8 home matches so far, Hammarby are yet to suffer a defeat with only 7 goals conceded and 16 scored. They are also on a three-game winning streak ahead of the forthcoming contest.
The away side is also a tough nut to crack, especially on the road. In 8 away matches, they were beaten only once while recording 3 wins and 4 draws. Their Allsvenskan visits are almost strictly low-scoring as they allowed only 5 goals while netting 6.
Hacken’s game plan is clear ahead of the Stockholm visit – saving their own net at all costs.
Hammarby vs Hacken: Head-to-head

Hammarby vs Hacken: Prediction
A heavily defensive team is visiting another team’s fortress – it’s obvious that the goals might miss out, regardless of Hammarby’s recent games at Tele2 Arena. Hacken have proved they are able to grab points in Stockholm, so the hosts will be wary, especially in the first half. Both sides would be satisfied with a point here, so a low-scoring draw is the most logical outcome.
