Norrkoping vs Hammarby
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Thursday, 13 August 2020
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Ostgotaporten (Norrköping).
The recent double loss in the league cost Norrkoeping their second spot in the table. The host is still five points ahead of the visitors in the campaign. They are winless for the past four fixtures, following a 3-2 loss on the road against Helsingborg last time out in the schedule.
The Peking has lost none of their home matches in the league so far and is one of the three sides to achieve that streak in the mix. Hammarby has only 2 wins from their 7 away fixtures in the campaign until now, which shows their problems at the back away from home.
The Bajen has been unbeaten in their last four clashes in the overall league schedule. Stefan Billborn will have work to do in the dugout, and the 1-2 win on the road against Djurgarden last time out will improve the morale of the players on the traveling side.
Norrkoping vs Hammarby Head-to-head (h2h)

- The host has recorded four of the last five overall wins.
- The Bajen has been winless for their past eight visits since 2002.
Norrkoping vs Hammarby Prediction
Norrkoping recent two defeats will probably trouble the player’s morale in the game, but both the defeats came in their away fixtures. So, returning home will probably help Jens Gustafsson to pick up his team from the double loss in their schedule.
Hammarby’s unbeaten run in the campaign is intimidating, but the Bajen has had troubles in their away fixtures and especially in their visits to this venue since 2002. Thus, a draw no bet over Norrkoping will probably be the best bet in the encounter.
In their h2h meetings at this venue for the last two seasons, the Peking was unbeaten but did not produce huge goal margins in the game. We can expect the visitor to fight back, and hence, the tip for under 3.5 goals and a BTTS will both come in handy for the punters.
