Kalmar vs Mjallby
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Monday, 24 August 2020
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Guldfågeln Arena.
Kalmar has lost their 9th game of the season in the last matchday. No other team has lost this many games after just 16 rounds are completed. They need wins to get out of the relegation zone and the upcoming opposition is not to be taken lightly.
The new team on the block has surpassed many experienced campaigners in Sweden. From their 16 games, they have five wins and six defeats. They have converted some of the defeats to draw which is more than enough to earn them a mid-table spot. Currently, they are 8th in the table but with Ostersunds and Orebro fast approaching they have to keep acquiring points to stay in the top ten.
Kalmar vs Mjallby: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Kalmar remains unbeaten in five previous meetings with this opposition.
- The recent head to the head game saw both teams share points and a final score of 2-2.
- The away team previously won this fixture back in September 2012.
- Both sides have two wins each in their last five clashes at this ground.
- Both sides found the target in all three latest games played here.
- All three of those games had the same final score of 2-1.
Kalmar vs Mjallby: Prediction
Even though Mjallby is in the top ten, they are currently struggling in away games. They are without a win in the last four matches on the road, of which three were defeats. These games include defeats against teams below them in the table like Varbergs and Orebro. At the same time, the home side had also a similar record at home but has drawn more games than lost them.
Both sides have scored in their last three head to head games at this ground. The visitors have already shown their attacking talent and have scored against the current champions in their recent away fixture too. Kalmar is capable of creating some chances themselves even though the defense has been below par. So I am backing both teams to score and the match to be a draw.
