Kalmar vs Sirius
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Monday, 14 May 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK
Venue: Guldfaegeln Arena (Kalmar)
Kalmar host Sirius for their Matchday 8 clash in fine form after connecting a three-game winning streak since mid-April, as they beat Trelleborg, Malmo, and Dalkurd. They’ve been rock-solid defensively and Nanne Bergstrand’s men will surely want to build on such records against struggling rivals on the day.
Red brothers have thus conceded just one goal in their three home games and netted five, as they beat both Elfsborg and Malmo and held Ostersunds to a 1-1 draw along the way. We’ve thus seen them build on the fine records we’ve seen in 2017 and it’s obvious Kalmar will want to do the same through most part of the campaign – desperate to challenge the league’s top 3.
Sirius have, on the other hand, seen an underwhelming start of the campaign and they’ve earned just four points in seven games so far. They come into the match after four consecutive losses suffered since mid-April and seeing thrillers against AIK (2-3) and Oerebro (2-4) in front of the home crowd will be no confidence booster either.
Kalmar vs Sirius: Head-to-head
The sides have first met in Allsvenskan last season, where both bagged the home wins in thrilling clashes.
Kalmar earned the home points in a six-goal thriller, turning a 4-2 win their way.
This was also the only head-to-head clash where we’ve seen goals on both ends.
Kalmar vs Sirius: Prediction
We will now back the home side to extend their fine form and seeing Sirius’ poor goal-scoring performances on the road, we’ll go for Kalmar to win to Nil at an eye-catching 2.62. We’ve seen some solid defensive displays and we hope to see them shut down the rivals completely.
With that in mind, we’ll also go for Under 2.5 goals FT at 1.80 as we rarely see Sirius concede many goals on the road and don’t really expect a completely one-sided contest on the day. This does seem great value for those sharing the belief the visitors will now find the net!
