Trelleborg vs Norrkoping
Belgium – First Division A
Date: Friday, 31 August 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Vangavallen, Trelleborg.
It seems Trelleborg are only on a one-year loan in the top flight of the Swedish football as they sit rock-bottom after 19 rounds of the competition with no signs of waking up any time soon.
The hosts lost seen on the bounce in all competitions and they’ll be massive underdogs in the opening fixture of the Matchday No 20 on Friday evening when the third-place Norrkoping come to visit Vangavallen.
Peking are on a completely opposite thread with three straight wins behind them and they see this clash as a great chance to further narrow the gap behind AIK and Hammarby at the very top of the standings.
Jens Gustafsson and his men have set sights sky-high this season aiming the top-three finish and a place in European competitions next summer.
To get there, they just need wins over rivals such as Trelleborg and there are no doubts they’ll be highly motivated to get one on Friday and make it four victories on the trot in all competitions here.
Trelleborg vs Norrkoping: Head-to-head
Trelleborg picked up one of three wins in the season just against Norrkopping back in late-April when they stunned Peking 1-2 at Ostgotaporten.
It was teams’ first meeting since 2011 when Trelleborg last featured the top flight of the Swedish football.
Overall, Peking lead the head to head tie by eight wins coming into 28th encounter with Trelleborg.
Trelleborg vs Norrkoping: Prediction
The hosts have been very easy to break down recently and they’ll come into this after conceding three or more goals in three of last four games they played.
Patrick Winqvist’s men even suffered a 3-2 defeat to lower-division Hassleholms side in Svenska Cupen tie two weeks ago.
The visitors should thus really have plenty of space to deliver in the final third and we would be very surprised to see anything else but a comprehensive away victory as the final outcome here.
Norrkoping are 1.40 to win the match, while you can have them to bag two or more goals on the occasion at the odds of 1.50.
