Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
After playing out back-to-back draws with the likes of Malmo FF and Hammarby, IFK Goteborg recorded a 2-1 win over Hacken in their last league fixture. The Blavitt are undefeated in previous eight league matches and seeing that a victory over Orebro could see them climb to top position in the standings, we are positive that the hosts will go all guns blazing at Orebro.
A man to watch in the home team will be Sweden rising star Benjamin Nygren, who has netted four goals in the national championship so far this term. Axel Kjall’s troops, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs in the first half of the season and the team’s away record is anything but poor. Orebro did well to beat Ostersunds FK 3-1 in their last away game, but beating IFK Goteborg at Nya Ullevi is easier said than done.
Highlighted Team (Goteborg):
IFK Goteborg are yet another successful Swedish club. The Anglarna won their 18th national championship in 2007, but that was their only trophy of the 21st century. IFK Goteborg clinched the UEFA Cup trophy on two occasions (1981/82 and 1986/87), with the team making it to the European Cup semis in both 1985/86 and 1992/1993 season.
Swedish striker Marcus Berg is one of the club’s most notable players. Berg played 53 games for the Anglarna, scoring 21 goals in the league for the club.
