Varberg is at the 12th spot on the standing with 14 points from 13 games. They won 4 times in the league while drawing twice and have lost on 7 other occasions. The hosts has not able to net in 6 games this season and that accounts to 46% of the games where they have not been able to find crucial goals.
The hosts come into this on the back of a 0-3 hammering defeat at the hands of reigning champions Malmo, last weekend. Matches featuring Varberg have proved to be entertaining encounters of late with a lot of goalmouth action being a common characteristic.
On the other hand, Helsingborg resides at the rock bottom closing the 16th position on the table with a mere 6 points. Of the 14 matches played, they won only once in the league while drawn 3 times and have lost on 10 other occasions. After following promotion last season they had a hard time finding success here.
Following on from a 0-2 losing effort in their last game against Djurgarden in Allsvenskan competition, Helsingborgs will hope to get a better result this time. They have been good when going forward of late, scoring 5 times in their previous 6 matches.
