Jonkopings Sodra vs Elfsborg
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Friday, 18th August 2017
Kick-off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Stadsparksvallen, Jonkoping.
Both sides had endured the defeats with the same result on the home turf in the previous round – Jonkopings were beaten by Orebro 1-2, while Elfsborg bowed to Goteborg. A victory would mend the wounds from the last weekend, so both sides will lock on the full prize at Stadsparksvallen.
The hosts are in the 12th place with 18 pts earned, which puts them only two points away from the danger zone. The pressure is starting to mount on Jonkopings as the teams below them are showing some signs of improvement and form incline, while Jonkopings continue with their disappointing performances. After all, four victories after 19 games played can’t satisfy any fan in the World.
Regardless of the point advantage they have over Sodra (8 points), Elfsborg are in the similar situation. They are now winless in the last four outings, which is very disappointing following the seven-game unbeaten spell they had prior to their decline. So far, Elfsborg have conceded a goal in the each away game of Allsvenskan.

Jonkopings Sodra vs Elfsborg: Prediction

This match is perfect for your Both Teams to Score accumulator – but braver punters could opt for Over/Under market or BTTS in either of the two halves. Elfsborg mostly concede a goal in both halves, but in the second they switch to a more offensive approach, so we could see several goals in the second period.
