Helsingborgs vs IFK Norrkoping
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Monday, 10 August 2020
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Olympia (Helsingborg)
The Red Ones are still in the relegation zone and are the only team to have one win so far. From the 13 games, they have drawn seven which is another league record this season. They are coming into this game after the defeat to Malmo away from home.
The Comrades are second in the table after 13 matches. But at present, they are on a three-match winless run. The latest one of those was the away defeat to Hacken which increased the gap with Malmo by three points. So this will be their golden chance to get back into the title race.

Helsingborgs vs IFK Norrkoping: Prediction
There is a big difference between these two teams in terms of points. The away team may be on a winless run but they have enough strength to bounce back especially against a team placed in the relegation zone. The home team has managed to pick up two draws in their recent home fixtures, but they are not equipped to surprise the table toppers.
Considering their previous history we can expect goals in this tie for sure. In all three recent head to head games at this venue, both of them managed to get in the score sheet. The home side has a poor defense which is one of the main reasons why they are on the wrong end of the table. The Comrades has also conceded in recent games so we can expect both of them to score on Monday.
