GIF Sundsvall vs Sirius
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Saturday, 1st July 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Norrporten Arena.
Swedish Allsvenskan is back in action with the clash between GIF Sundsvall and Sirius.
The visitors, who are among the most positive shocks of the first part of the season, will come in Saturday’s clash as favourites following their impressive start to the new campaign in the elite.
Sundsvall had the worst possible finish to the first part of the season as they suffered three consecutive losses to the likes of IFK Goteborg, Kalmar and Ostersund.
The team led by Joel Cedergren conceded as many as ten goals during the poor run which has brought them on the brink of the danger area after 12 rounds of the competition.
However, Giffarna have been quite impressive in mid-season friendlies having notched seven goals in wins over Hammarby and Ostersund.
Nobody could have predicted such strong start for the league’s newcomers who currently enjoy the sky-high fifth position ranking.
Kim Bergstrand has been doing a phenomenal job since the very kick off to the new season.
We will still be careful with the away win bets knowing that Sirius collect most of their points in the home ground. Blasvart are winless in last four outings away from Srtudenternas IP.
GIF Sundsvall vs Sirius: Head to head
The two sides have met each other in a friendly match prior to the start of the season when Sirius claimed a 1-2 win on the road.
It is very interesting to note that each of the last four games between the two teams saw away victories.
However, the previous encounter between the two sides saw a 2-1 victory for Haugesund in mid August last year.
GIF Sundsvall vs Sirius: Prediction
Even though the visitors have been enjoying a much better form in the first part of the season, we’ll skip the outcome bets and focus on backing both teams to score pick.
The hosts showed inspiring attacking displays in back-to-back wins in friendlies announcing that this match could bring a drama and a high-scoring affair.
