Date: Saturday, 30 July 2022
Kick-off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET
Venue: NP3 Arena.
Gameweek 16 of Allsvenskan is set for this weekend as the relegation fighting Sundsvall play host to Varbergs where both these sides differ by 5 points but are separated by only 2 places. These two teams will be seen clashing at NP3 Arena, this Saturday.
Varbergs is at the 12th spot on the standing with 15 points from 15 games. They won 4 times in the league while having drawn thrice and lost on 8 other occasions. The visitors have conceded 2 or more goals in 6 of their last 10 away matches and an immediate improvement is needed in their backline.
The visitors come into this on the back of a 0-3 defeat at home to Hammarby in their most recent outing. In a total of 5 of the previous 6 clashes featuring them, a minimum of three goals have gone in. The number of goals averaged by Varbergs comes out as 0.67 in that time.
On the other hand, Sundsvall resides second at the bottom with a mere 10 points. Of the 15 matches played, they won thrice in the league while having drawn once and have lost on 11 other occasions. The hosts have the worst conceding figures so far in the league with the opponents netting 37 goals in total.
The hosts won’t want a repeat of their last result here following the 1-0 Allsvenskan defeat last time out to Helsingborg. Matches featuring Sundsvall have often been lively encounters recently with high scoring anticipated.
