Sirius vs Kalmar FF Prediction
In head-to-head matches, the home side has been consistently stronger and has won the last three matches in a row. Along with the home ground advantage, Sirius is also unbeaten in five of their last six matches. At home too, Sirius has impressed recently, with three unbeaten matches in a row.
While Sirius has been good at home, Kalmar has been equally bad on the road. They have not tasted a win in their last five away matches. In their last 23 matches on the road, only four times have they outscored their opponents.
Kalmar’s overall record too has been unsatisfactory. Just one win in their last 11 matches doesn’t scream quality or form.
Expect the home side, Sirius, to win the match. Both the halves will be dominated by the hosts. With their terrible form, especially on the road, Kalmar is expected to lose the tie.
