Varbergs vs Djurgarden Prediction & Match Preview

Varbergs vs Djurgarden
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Wednesday, 5 August 2020
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Paskbergsvallen (Varberg).

The newbie has done impressive work so far in their first season after promotion. The current Superettan champs are 6th in the points table after 12 games. They have drawn both recent matches and are on a four-match winless run at the moment. This is yet another tough fixture this season for them as they hope to get at least a point from it. The lack of experience will hurt them and they cannot be lazy in defense like the previous games in this upcoming tie.

The reigning champions of Allsvenskan have fallen into the third post. They have a five-point deficit to overcome to get to the top. The last two games have got them up and running after an inconsistent start to the season. But the four defeats will hurt them most at the business end of the season. Considering the form they are in they will have a normal day at the office this Wednesday.

Varbergs vs Djurgarden: Prediction

Last season an early lead in points helped the visitors to guarantee the title. But now they have to catch up with Malmo as soon as possible.  The away form this season has been all over the place with three losses and wins coming in six games. At the same time, the hosts have not been perfect at home either. But they have a five-match unbeaten run going on at present and picked up a draw against Elfsborg in a recent match day. So I think both of them will share points in this one.

The champions have been shabby at the back especially on the road. They are giving away goals at an average of a goal per game in away fixtures. This will give the hosts some chances to test the keeper and maybe net some goals too.  In fact, they have scored in all home matches so far. So we can expect goals at both ends of the field.
