Hammarby vs Trelleborg
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Sunday, 5 August 2018
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Tele2 Arena, Stockholm.
Hammarby and Trelleborg are set for the reverse fixture just six days after they took on each other in the previous round of Allsvenskan.
The Bajen were in control from the very start of the clash played on Monday as Serge Martinsson-Ngouali and Nikola Djurdjic pushed them two goals ahead within the opening half-hour. It ended 1-3 at Vangavallen as Trelleborg continued the slum in form suffering the fourth defeat in last five league outings.
The team led by Patrick Winqvist opened the season in a decent fashion, but they look to have started to feel the strength of the top tier football.
Trelleborg took only one point in last five Allsvenskan matches, a thread which caused the drop to the 14th place in the league ladder. Only Brommapojkarna and Dalkurd have a weaker record so far in the season.
Hammarby vs Trelleborg: Head-to-head
- Hammarby now lead the head to head tie by two wins coming into their 18th clash with Trelleborg.
- There were three goals scored in five of last six head to head affairs between these two outfits.
- Bajen won 6, drew 3 and lost 3 of 12 matches against Trelleborg at Tele2 Arena.
Hammarby vs Trelleborg: Prediction
Unlike Trelleborg, Hammarby have been thriving in the final third recently. They won two on the trot netting seven goals in the process and they are massive favourites to keep such splendid form going in another tie with the relegation strugglers.
Bajen are three points shy of table-toppers AIK and they have a game in hand on Gnaget, meaning a win here would push them level on points with Norling’s side.
Trelleborg conceded at least three goals in three of last four league matches and we can hardly see them avoiding the catastrophe against the red-hot Hammarby side away at Tele2 Arena.
The main bet will be HT/FT Hammarby/Hammarby at 1.61, while you can also try with the hosts to win by two or more goals difference at the 1.65 odds.
