Sundsvall: Winless since April (Recent Form: LDDLDL)
Sundsvall are on 14th place in Swedish Allsvenskan with 11 points (2 wins, 5 draws, 8 losses; goal difference 18:22). They are currently on relegation play-off spot, but being equal on points with the two bottom sides, 15th AFC Eskilstuna and 16th Falkenbergs (direct drop zone), whereas the distance to 13th Kalmar (safe spot) is 2 points at the moment. The team is in bad shape – 0 wins, 3 draws, 2 losses in last 5 league matches. In total, they are currently on a poor 9-game winless streak so there’s a need for quick improvement, otherwise it won’t be possible to avoid big troubles. Sundsvall take on Hammarby on Monday in the next league fixture. Sundsvall have collected 8 points in 6 home games to date (2 wins, 2 draws, 2 defeats; goal difference 9:7).
Hammarby: Failed to find the net in last 3 away games (Recent Form: WLLLDD)
Hammarby sit on 7th position in the standings with 22 points (6 wins, 4 draws, 4 defeats; goal difference 26:20). They are now 11 points ahead of the relegation zone, with 1 game in hand, whereas Hammarby are 6 points short of 3rd Djurgarden (UEFA Europa League qualification). Their recent form is rather poor – 1 win, 2 draws, 2 defeats in last 5 games in Allsvenskan, but they’ve got a victory on last matchday. Now it’s time for an away encounter. Hammarby have collected 5 points in 7 matches on the road (1 win, 2 draws, 4 losses; goal difference 6:13).
THE BETTING VERDICT:
In conclusion, I believe that visitors are favourites of this clash. Sundsvall remain winless since April, having collected just 3 points in last 9 matches. In my opinion Hammarby may get a victory in this fixture.
