Kalmar vs Hacken
Date: Thursday, 27 September 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Guldfageln Arena (Kalmar).
It’s a bit too late for Hacken’s renaissance to get them involved in the title contest in this term of Allsvenskan.
Kalmar found just the right rhythm in the last couple of months winning six of last seven league games. Nevertheless, they are still miles away from the title challenge being 14 points shy of AIK at the top of the standings.
The team led by Andreas Alm could try and reach the top-three finish at the best, but even Hammarby are seven points adrift in third with only eight games left to play.
Can Getingarna at least maintain the fine spell of form on Thursday evening when they travel to Guldfageln Arena to tackle the struggling Kalmar side in the mid-week round?
Kalmar vs Hacken: Head-to-head
- Kalmar have the positive record in head to head matches with Getingarna.
- The hosts were, however, completely outplayed in the last couple of head to head outings.
- Hacken won three on the spin against Roda Broder who failed to find the back of the net in the process.
- Kalmar actually won just one of last six H2H affairs with Hacken.
Kalmar vs Hacken: Prediction
It’s been a roller-coaster campaign for Kalmar in this term of Allsvenskan. They’ve been on a poor run of form of late. It even caused the change on the bench as Henrik Rydstrom took over Nanne Bergstrand.
However, the team continued to struggle for goals under the new boss. Kalmar failed to break the deadlock against the relegation-threatened Dalkurd at home before falling 4-0 away at the defending champions Malmo FF in the previous round.
The hosts scored just one goal in four league ties and they were also eliminated from Svenska Cupen to lower-division Assyriska Turabdin (3-1 defeat) a month ago.
Based on everything written above, we truly believe in the continuation of Hacken’s dominance in H2H matches. The away win is well worth backing at the odds of 2.37, while you can alternatively back the visitors to keep a clean sheet at 3.25.
Kalmar vs Hacken: Bet Tips
