Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
Elfsborg play host to Goteborg at their Boras Arena in the Allsvenskan round 9. Elfsborg have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team beating Degerfors, sharing the spoils with Djurgarden, while losing to Sirius in their last league match. Both Alm and Bernhardsson are pushing for a start, while defender Gustav Henriksson remains on the sidelines with injury. Goteborg, on the other hand, failed to win the previous five league fixtures.
The visitors are eager to give fans some cheer, but seeing that they have been struggling on the road of late, we are going to put our money on Di Gule this time out. Sebastian Eriksson remains in the recovery room, while fellow midfielder Simon Thern serves a one-game ban. In their last meeting in the Swedish top flight Elfsborg defeated Goteborg thanks to Jacob Ondrejka’s goal.
