Norrkoping vs Hacken
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Sunday, 7 July 2019
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Ostgotaporten (Norrköping).
Norrkoping is facing a slight hitch as their unbeaten run came to an end the last day against Sirius. Considering the former had the home advantage, and had an eight-point lead over the visitors, the result was a bit of dampener.
Interestingly, the team has performed considerably well on the road, compared to their home fixtures. If only they are able to bring parity between these stats, a spot in the podium is up for the grabs for them.
Competitors Hacken has an opportunity to make it to the European positions. They have a game in hand and need a surplus of just one point to make their objective happen.
On top of that, they are coming in hot with a 2-0 home win over Hammarby the last day and will be brimming with confidence.

Norrkoping vs Hacken Prediction
Hacken may be in overall good form, but they considerably lack in h2h stats against this opponent, and with the home advantage in favor of Norrkoping, things look slightly brighter for them.
On top of that, closer inspection shows that, despite avoiding losses in their last five games, the visitors of this fixture are also winless in three of their last four. Also, on the road, they repeated the feat in five of the last seven.
In addition, Norrkoping was unbeaten in 12 of their last 14 ties and won three of their last four. They also managed to score two or more goals in six of their last seven match-ups, and importantly, at home, they went without a loss in 17 of their last 21 appearances. They also had an 11-game streak without losses in front of the home crowd, during this stretch. As such, expect them to avoid a loss at all costs this weekend.
Regarding goals though, Hacken might prove to be too much to handle. They found the back of the net in 22 of their last 25 battles, and in 15 of their last 19 on the road. Moreover, six of the last seven h2h games and 11 of the last 14 at this venue had goals from both sides. Expect the same thing to happen this Sunday as well.
