Kalmar vs Sirius
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Thursday, 23 July 2020
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Guldfageln Arena (Kalmar).
Kalmar has started the new edition as a relegation favorite at the bottom part of the table. Sirius, in the meantime, is all set to stay at the top part of the league table and another three points will probably be the push they are looking for in the campaign.
Kalmar is on a six-game losing streak in the campaign, following a 2-1 loss on the road against Malmo FF last time out in their schedule. It marked their fifth loss with both teams scoring in the game.
Meanwhile, Sirius is ahead of Kalmar with just 2 losses in their league appearances so far. Their previous encounter was at home against Norrkoping and they won it big with a 4-2 scoreline.
The host won their opening match at home in the league, but after that, they have lost the three home matches with the same 1-2 scoreline in each.
On the contrary, the visitor had only one loss in their four fixtures on the road this season and even had a clean sheet win in their away schedule in the campaign.
Having lost all their matches this month, the home team has very little to offer in the game and probably the traveling contingent will have the lead by the time the fat lady sings.

Kalmar vs Sirius Prediction
It comes without a doubt that Sirius is closer to be the favorites to win than the home team. Kalmar FF has been losing all their matches since late last month in the league. Their only comfort will be to know that only two of the seven defeats were clean sheet losses.
Sirius has a better position in the campaign at the top part of the table. They had only two losses in 9 appearances so far and only one of them came in their away fixtures. With a 9 point lead over the host, the traveling side has more chances to create opportunities in the game.
The double chance favoring Sirius with 1.40 odds will probably be the best bet for the punters since the away win is a risky call. The visitor might probably dominate in the match and is likely to draw the first blood. So, the tip for Sirius to score first might also apply in ninety minutes.
