Hammarby vs Puskas Akademia
Europa League Qualification
Date: Wednesday, 25 August 2020
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Tele2 Arena (Stockholm).
Hammarby has taken a downward slope in the Swedish Allsvenskan this season and has picked up only 24 points from their 17 league appearances until now this term.
Their previous encounter was on the road and they lost to Sirius in the Allsvenskan with a 3-1 scoreline. But with a six-game unbeaten streak at home, the Bajen is still the favorites at Stockholm.
Puskas Academy hasn’t played in a while and apart from the club friendlies lately, their schedule has been open since the 2-1 home win in late June against Honved at the Hungarian OTP Bank Liga.
They had only one win in their last six away fixtures in the schedule, but most of them were drawn. This puts hope for the traveling side to take something from the match for the return home.
With their ground advantage, the host is upfront in the encounter and the poor away form for the visitors will also add into the home team’s advantage for the game.
Hammarby vs Puskas Akademia Prediction
Hammarby has an impeccable record at home in the Allsvenskan so far this season. The ground advantage will come in handy for the host in the game, which pushes us to back the home team for a win in full-time.
Puskas will play out of the blue since their last game in any major contest was in June this year. But they are likely to trouble the host with their pleasant form of late in their schedule. So, the tip for a BTTS will probably serve as a suitable option in ninety minutes.
