Sundsvall vs Goteborg: Preview and Predictions

GIF Sundsvall vs IFK Goteborg
Swedish Allsvenskan
Date: Sunday, 27 May 2018
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Norrporten Arena, Sundsvall.

GIF Sundsvall will be looking to end the dismal week with a success on Sunday when they host IFK Goteborg at Norrporten Arena. Giffarna lost last two league affairs to Ostersunds FK and Norrkoping and they’ve dropped down to 11th in the league standings as a result. Another failure here night put them in jeopardize ahead of the tough set up fixtures upcoming (including clashes with the likes of Hacken and AIK).

Goteborg are still trying to find the way back to be competitive in the battle for the very top of the standing in Allsvenskan. They had a rather dreadful campaign last time out and they did not start the new season in a much better fashion either. The team led by Poya Asbaghi are only a single point above GIF Sundsvall after ten rounds of the competition, but they’ll head into this hoping to maintain the fine spell of form in matches away from home where they took four points in last two affairs against the likes of Malmo FF and Elfsborg.

Sundsvall vs Goteborg Head-to-head

The head to head stats completely favour IFK Goteborg who won 12 and lost only 4 of 24 encounters against Giffarna.

Blavitt only lost 2 of 12 matches away at Norrporten Arena winning 5 at the same time.

Nevertheless, it’s GIF Sundsvall who clinched a demolishing 0-3 victory over Blavitt in their previous head to head outing played in early-November last year.

Interestingly, four or more goals were seen in all but one of last eight head to head clashes.

Sundsvall vs Goteborg Prediction

We’d not be surprised to see the continuation of the high scoring trend in H2H games between these two sides given that neither club have reasons to be proud of defensive displays at the start of the season. You can back three or more goals at quite tempting 1.90 odds.

As for the outcome, it can honestly go either way given that Sundsvall have shown pretty impressive form in front of the home crowd so far in the season. Before the loss to Ostersunds last weekend, Joel Cedergren’s troops won three league games in a row at Norrporten Arena. On the other side, IFK Goteborg have a much better head to head record and they are undefeated on last two travels, including the one against the defending champions Malmo FF. We’ll thus rather shoot tor the BTTS option, set at the 1.75 odds.

Sundsvall vs Goteborg Bet Tips

  • Over 2.5 goals FT @ 1.90
