Kalmar vs Goteborg
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Sunday, 6th August 2017
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Guldfageln Arena, Kalmar.
Kalmar host Goteborg at Guldfageln Arena on Sunday within Round 18 of Swedish Allsvenskan.
The hosts are still in the dangerous zone regardless of their two consecutive victories. Snatching points against Goteborg would work wonders regarding their confidence in the second part of the season.
Kalmar are in the relegation playoff spot with 14 pts earned. They are not far from the relative safety yet, but their goal is to keep on winning points in the upcoming period. Following the four-game losing spell they endured, Kalmar won twice in a row. They beat AFC Eskilstuna 2-0, however, dropping points against the worst team in the league would be disastrous. A week later, they stunned AIK 0-1 and added a lot more than three points as the aforementioned victory significantly boosted team’s morale.
The visitors are having an underwhelming season in Allsvenskan. Only 22 pts accumulated are far from Goteborg’s ambitions, and they are likely to finish the season in the middle of the table.
Goteborg are very inconsistent – in the last five games, they registered two victories and draws apiece and a sole defeat.
Kalmar vs Goteborg: Head-to-head
Back in May, Goteborg bested Kalmar with 3-0. Bjarsmyr, Rieks and Hysen all tallied goal each for the clean victory. The two sides are inclined to draws in their meetings as two out of last five games ended without a winner.
Kalmar vs Goteborg: Prediction
Uncharacteristic for Swedish top tier, in Kalmar’s matches both teams rarely find the way to the opponent’s net. Goteborg prefer offensive approach and that’s why their defense suffers most of the time. Kalmar are certainly able to utilize on that, especially if they score early on and defend the rest of the match while patiently waiting for counter-attack opportunities.
