Sirius vs Halmstad BK: Head-to-head
The two sides met three times so far. Back in 2014 within Cup encounter, Sirius narrowly won 2-1. Last season, they met twice in Allsvenskan where again Sirius won, both away and home fixture.
Sirius vs Halmstad BK: Prediction
Sirius are unbeaten for over a month on the home turf and they will probably extend their undefeated run after Halmstad. The guests are in horrible form without any signs of improvement. We will probably see a one-sided match with at least two goals in Halmstad’s net. However, Sirius’ defense isn’t immaculate, so Halmstad could at least make the match more entertaining with a goal.
