Jonkopings vs Hacken
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Monday, 17th July 2017
Kick-off at 18:00 UK
Venue: Stadsparksvallen (Jonkoping).
Struggling teams Jonkopings Sodra and BK Hacken lock horns in the final match of Swedish Allsvenskan round 15 fixture.
Jonkopings are left waiting for a win after Ostersunds strike late to earn a 1-1 week in their last round fixture. Now they are without a win in 7 matches, with only 1 win coming from the last 10 league games.
The team managed by Jimmy Thelin only escaped relegation narrowly last season. Right now, they have a 7 cushion over the bottom three. They are also benefited by the extreme poor form of the teams at the wrong end of the table, something that ease pressure on them, despite the form being extremely poor.
At home, Jonkopings lost their last two matches. They were unbeaten in the previous four with 2 wins and 2 draws.
Meanwhile, Hacken’s form is no better than their Monday’s host. They lost 1-0 at home to Malmo to receive the third defeat in the space of four games. Also, this was the fourth occasion in five games that they left without troubling the scorers.
Interestingly, Hacken tend to perform better in away games. They were on a five match unbeaten run with 2 wins and 3 draws before suffering a 2-0 defeat at Hacken in their last away game. This is achieved on the back of a strong defense that conceded 3 goals from 6 games.
Jonkopings vs Hacken: Head-to-head
Hacken are unbeaten in the last six games against Jonkopings. They have 4 wins and 2 draws to their name in the period.
At home, Jonkopings drew 1 and lost 2 to Hacken. The last home win came during their meeting at the Svenska Cup in 2006.
Jonkopings vs Hacken: Prediction
The teams are in dismal run of form and started sliding down the league table. However, the pressure is more on Jonkopings than Hacken, due to their former’s position near the relegation waters. Moreover, Hacken’s h2h record has to be highlighted. Coupling this with their away record this season, the visitors look good to avoid a defeat here.
