THE BETTING VERDICT:
To sum up, it seems that this might be an interesting clash with a couple of goals. Dalkurd need to aim for a victory in front of their fans if they want to challenge for the top 3 places. On the other hand, Halmstad need points to move away from the relegation zone so perhaps this may be an open match.
