Sirius vs Sundsvall
Date: Wednesday, 15 May 2019
Kick-Off 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Studenternas IP (Uppsala).
Neither Sirius nor Sundsvall are pulling up any trees coming into their mid-week 9th round tie at Studenternas IP. The hosts, who barely saved the top tier status last season, made a promising start to the new Allsvenskan campaign. Nevertheless, their form has seen a massive slump in the last couple of weeks as lost five and drew one of last six league affairs.
Henrik Rydstorm’s men were just incapable of keeping things quiet at the back in recent outings. They allowed as many as ten goals in three successive defeats to Elfsborg, IFK Goteborg and Hammarby. The team also failed to find the back of the net in three of last five league matches. They lost three on the spin at home. Can Sirius arrest the current slump on Wednesday evening against fellow strugglers GIF Sundsvall?
Sirius vs Sundsvall: Head-to-head
Sundsvall were the dominant force in the most recent history of head to head encounters with Blasvart.
Giffarna won four on the trot against Sirius netting at least three goals in each of last three H2H clashes.
The streak incudes a demolishing 4-0 victory for Sundsvall in teams’ previous head to head meeting in early-September last year.
Sirius vs Sundsvall: Prediction
The visitors struggled for efficiency in recent matches. They notched only one goal in back-to-back defeats to Hacken (1-0) and Orebro (1-2). Losses against these rivals can certainly be regarded as failures for a side which hopes for a top-half finish in this season of Allsvenskan.
Even though the visitors have both quality and head to head record on their side, we can’t back the away win bet here knowing Giffarna lost last two league clashes against the likes of Hacken and Orebro. This is why draw looks like the most likable of three outcomes and we find the value in backing it at 3.40 odds. Alternatively, Under 2.5 goals FT is another decent option at 2.10 odds.
