Norrkoping vs Elfsborg Preview and Predictions

Norrkoping vs Elfsborg
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Monday, 23 July 2018
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Ostgota Porten (Norrkoping).

Norrkoping is on a solid run of form and are genuine title challenger this term.

It is very tight race at the top of Swedish Allsvenskan table to be honest with AIK leading the pack with 33 points, while Norrkoping, Hammarby and Djurgarden are 6 points behind.

The hosts are currently on a 7 match unbeaten run with 5 wins and 2 draws. But, their home form this season is the standout with 6 wins and 1 loss from 7 games.

Elfsborg are on some form on their own as well and they are coming after holding the second placed Hammarby to a goal-less draw.

They had a poor start to the season and that is why they are sitting at 11th in the table. Yet, things are looking good in recent weeks with the team picking up 3 wins and 2 draws from the last five.

Norrkoping vs Elfsborg Prediction

Norrkoping have the form on their side and they are one of the consistent performers in the league over the past few seasons.

The hosts cannot afford a defeat here, this can only mount un-necessary pressure on them.

Yet, they have hardly fared against Elfsborg, a side known for their inconsistency and unpredictability.

This is the reason why I am backing the visitors to avoid a defeat on Monday evening.
