Varbergs vs Hammarby
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Monday, 25 July 2022
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Varberg Energi Arena.
Hammarby have been one of the very best teams in the Swedish top flight this season and they are aggressively going after a top 3 finish. Meanwhile Varbergs have been one of the weaker teams in the league and are trying to stay above the relegation cut-off as of now.
Hammarby have a game in hand and still they need a surplus of just one point to climb level with the 3rd placed team. It also deserves to be mentioned that they have let in the least number of goals of all the teams in the competition as of now.
Going on, they need a surplus of 4 points to climb to the top of the table and it gives them confidence that the first-placed team are taking on the second-placed squad this match-day in the Allsvenskan.
One of the two will surely drop points, and this is an opportunity that just cannot be let go easily.
Meanwhile, Varbergs have managed to win a total of just 4 times all through the campaign and they have also won just once in the past 5 match days.
Only one other team has scored fewer goals than them and most importantly they have a poor head-to-head record against this opponent over the years.
For these reasons, expect a win for Hammarby this Monday.
