Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
Buoyed by a 2-0 win over Sirius, Elfsborg will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Halmstad at Boras Arena. Di Gule are seen as favourites to win Monday’s clash, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. Veteran midfielder Samuel Holmen returns from suspension, while all Alm, Holst, and Okumu are likely to miss the game through injuries.
Halmstad, on the other hand, kicked off the 2021 season with a 1-0 win over Hacken, but they are on a five-game winless run ahead of the trip to Elfsborg. The visitors are low on confidence, and seeing that they have been struggling in front of goal of late, home win should be considered. Ghana attacker Phil Ofosu-Ayeh remains in the recovery room, but he should be the only absentee in the away team.
