Kalmar vs IFK Goteborg
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Saturday, 4 August 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Guldfågeln Arena, Kalmar.
Kalmar fell down to 9th place in the Allssvenskan standings after losing three games on the bounce in the top flight of the Swedish football. They are hoping to bring the crisis to an end on Saturday afternoon when IFK Goteborg come to visit Guldfageln Arena for the Matchday No 16 tie.
The visitors managed a very important 3-0 victory over fellow strugglers Brommapojkarna last time out and they will enter the Kalmar game in much higher spirits. Blavitt took six points from last there league outings and they are now seven points adrift of the danger area.
Nevertheless, it’s a poor record IFK have on travels which worries the head coach Poya Asbaghi ahead of this trip. Goteborg shipped five goals in last two defeats on the road against the likes of GIF Sundsvall and Sirius.
Kalmar vs Goteborg: Head-to-head
Kalmar won last two head to head games, but Goteborg have been the more successful side over the course of history.
Blavitt won 18 and lost 13 of 40 H2H affairs with Kalmar.
Five of last seven head to head outings saw the BTTS option “come in”.
Kalmar vs Goteborg: Prediction
Kalmar could take advantage of Goteborg’s slower form on travels to find the way out of the crisis and finally score a goal after failing to do so in last three league fixtures. The key to success will, however, lie in their defensive display and the way they’ll use to stop the red-hot Elias Mar Omarsson. Icelandic forward completed a hat-trick in the aforementioned 3-0 victory over Brommapojkarna last weekend and he will certainly be the main threat to Kalmar’s goal on the occasion.
The good news for Nanne Bergstrand is that his defense looked fairly solid in spite of narrow defeats. Knowing that Blavitt have really struggled to perform away from home so far in Allsvenskan, we have to go for the home win at the odds of 2.15. Kalmar to keep a clean sheet is another bet worth backing at the odds of 2.75.
