Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
Sirius will be looking to escape the danger zone in the Allsvenskan standings when they host Hammarby at their Studenternas IP on Wednesday evening. The Blasvart aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Goteborg, but the game against the title-chasing team will be anything but a walk in the park for the relegation strugglers. However, since Sirius outplayed Falkenberg in their last home game in the Swedish top flight, we predict that the hosts are going to grab something from the midweek fixture.
Hammarby, on the other hand, did remarkably well to beat AIK 2-1 in their last league match, with the team keeping their hopes of winning the domestic trophy alive. Stefan Billborn’s charges have been scoring goals for fun in the Swedish elite division of late, but seeing that they produce much better showings at home than on the road, share of spoils is on the cards.
Highlighted Player (Aron Johannsson):
Aron Johannsson is a 25-year-old striker who plays for the German Bundesliga club Werder Bremen and the United States national side. He started his career with Iceland club Fjolnir before joining Dutch club AZ Alkmaar in 2013.
He had a prolific stay at the Eredivisie before signing for Werder Bremen in 2015 for a transfer fee in the region of € 5 million. However he made limited appearances for them due to a hip injury. Johannsson is a former Iceland U-21 international but made his senior debut for the United States in 2013. He was part of the American squad which finished fourth at the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup scoring in the quarter-final win over Cuba.
He already has 19 senior caps to his name along with two goals to his credit. Johannsson is known as a very mobile striker and scores goals at an excellent rate – as was evident in his stay at Alkmaar.
