Helsingborg: Without a victory in last 5 home games (Recent Form: DWLLDD)
Helsingborg are on 11th place in Swedish Allsvenskan with 14 points (3 wins, 5 draws, 6 losses; goal difference 14:20). They have currently 3 points of advantage over 14th Sundsvall (relegation play-off), whereas the distance to 3rd Djurgarden (UEFA Europa League qualification) is 14 points at the moment. Therefore, they need to focus on avoiding relegation. The team is in average shape – 1 win, 3 draws, 1 loss in last 5 league matches. Helsingborg take on Sirius on Monday in the next league fixture. Helsingborg have collected 9 points in 7 home games to date (2 wins, 3 draws, 2 defeats; goal difference 9:9).
Sirius: In average shape (Recent Form: DWLLWL)
Sirius sit on 9th position in the standings with 17 points (5 wins, 2 draws, 7 defeats; goal difference 18:22). They are now 6 points ahead of the bottom 3 teams in the league with 1 game in hand, whereas Sirius are 11 points short of the third-placed Djurgarden (UEFA Europa League qualification). Their recent form is average – 2 wins, 1 draw, 2 defeats in last 5 games in Allsvenskan. Now it’s time for an away encounter. Sirius have collected 10 points in 6 matches on the road (3 wins, 1 draw, 2 losses; goal difference 6:4).
THE BETTING VERDICT:
All in all, I think that this might be an interesting clash with a couple of goals. Helsingborg are quite close to the drop zone and they need to try to put an end to their current 5-match winless streak in front of their fans. On the other hand, Sirius are not safe so they need points as well. In my opinion this may be an open game.
