Sirius vs Dalkurd
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Friday, 17 August 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Studenternas IP, Uppsala.
Sirius continued to shine last Friday when they bagged three goals in another scintillating attacking performance which was enough to mark the fourth Allsvenskan win on the bounce for them. IFK Goteborg were the latest victims.
Blasvart will have a great chance to keep such an amazing form going and continue the climb on the league ladder seven days later when they are set to host the rock-bottomed Dalkurd at Studenternas IP in Uppsala.
The visitors were close to being competitive at the start of the season, but they soon started to feel the strength of a higher division football. They now sit at the very foot of the standings with just nine points from 17 rounds.
Dalkurd head into this off the back of four losses on the trot and they clearly have a mountain to climb in order to prevent the immediate return to the second tier.
Sirius vs Dalkurd: Head-to-head
Sirius did not have any troubles beating Dalkurd 1-3 on the road when the two teams took on each other in this term of Allsvenskan.
They were battling it out together in the Superettan campaign of 2016, while most of their 11 H2H games happened in the third class of the Swedish football.
Overall, Blasvart lead the H2H tie by a single win, but we have to mention that both teams managed to find the back of the net in all of last six encounters.
Sirius vs Dalkurd: Prediction
Dalkurd’s defensive line did look somewhat better last weekend when the rock-bottomed outfit only conceded one goal to the defending champions Malmo FF.
However, they will be up against a red-hot attacking line of Sirius’ and we can hardly see them holding the hosts down here.
Kim Bergstrand’s men scored three goals in each of last three league games and they head into this as massive favourites.
We see a tremendous value in backing the home win at the sky-high 1.80 odds. The alternative bet will obviously be Sirius to net two or more goals at the 1.72 odds.
