Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
Following three consecutive defeats in the Allsvenskan, Goteborg suffered a 6-2 loss to Hammarby in their last league fixture. The Anglarna are six points behind the Europa League berth, meaning that this has to go down as a must-win game for the home team. Goteborg did well to crush Kalmar 4-0 in their last home game in the national championship, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Sirius.
The visitors, on the other hand, are only six points clear of the relegation zone ahead of the trip to Goteborg, but they should not be looking for points in matches against the top-table sides. When the two teams met at Studenternas IP in the first half of the season Goteborg recorded a 4-2 win over Sirius, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the home side.
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.
