Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
Hammarby and Varbergs face each other at Tele2 Arena in a highly-anticipated clash. Hammarby have been playing below expectations at the start of the season, with the team suffering back-to-back defeats to the likes of AIK and Mjallby in the previous two league fixtures. Stefan Billborn’s men are eager to get back on course, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Varbergs.
Keep in mind though that defender Richard Magyar (suspension) and forward Imad Khalili (injury) both miss the midweek fixture. Varbergs, on the other hand, did well to hold Malmo to a draw in their last away game, which is surely giving fans ahead of the trip to Stockholm. Given Hammarby’s anything but good form, we predict that the visitors are going to grab something from Thursday’s football match. The two teams meet for the first time ever in the Swedish top flight.
