Jonkopings vs Djurgarden:
Swedish Allsvenskan.
Date: Monday, 18 July, 2016
Kick-Off: 16:30 UK Time.
Venue: Stadsparksvallen (Jonkoping).

Jonkopings Sodra look to climb up to the top half of the table as they host Djurgarden form Monday night’s Allsvenskan fixture.

The hosts are on a poor run of results in the league as they haven’t won a match since April 17th, which now stretch to 9 games. They were beaten by Ostersunds by a single goal in their previous fixture, which also ended their run of consecutive draws. Despite the recent downfalls, there is some relief as they had lost one game at home this season, the form which reads 2 wins, three draws from 6 matches. However they haven’t won in the last 4 home games.

Djurgarden sit at the 11th position in the league table, one place above Jonkopings and are both sides are level on points. The Blue Stripes were beaten at home 1-0 by Norrkoping in last week’s encounter and are coming on the back of two defeats in a row. They had suffered 8 defeats in the last 10 matches and haven’t drawn a match whole season. They are also coming on the back of 5 defeats in a row away from home.

Jonkopings vs Djurgarden: Head-to-Head

Djurgarden were victorious in the two meetings between the two sides so far, the latest of which was a club friendly on February 2014.

The only competitive meeting between these two sides was in the 2013 Svenska Cupen, which Djurgarden won 3-1.

Jonkopings vs Djurgarden: Prediction

The forms of these two teams is nothing to write and both are extremely inconsistent and unpredictable. Also, they haven’t met each other that often in competitive matches, making this a difficult one to call. But looking at the current trend of matches of Djurgarden, I could say there will be a winner at the end of ninety minutes. So a double chance on any side to win is a perfect pick for this match.

Looking at the defensive vulnerabilities of either sides, there is a higher chance for this match to see over 2.5 goals. You can also back both teams to score at least once.
