Varbergs: Promotion candidates (Recent Form: DLWWDW)
Varbergs are on 1st place in Swedish Superettan with 33 points (10 wins, 3 draws, 1 loss; goal difference 28:13). They are currently on a direct promotion spot, having 9 points of advantage over 3rd Brage (promotion play-off), so it appears that Varbergs are strong promotion candidates at the moment. The team is in decent shape – 2 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss in last 5 league matches, but they are winless in last 2. Varbergs take on Degerfors on Wednesday in the next league fixture. Varbergs have collected all 18 points possible in 6 home games to date (6 wins, 0 draws, 0 defeats; goal difference 14:4). It’s worth noting that Varbergs are the only team left in the league who are still yet to drop points in front of their fans.
Degerfors: Average side (Recent Form: WWDLLL)
Degerfors sit on 7th position in the standings with 21 points (6 wins, 3 draws, 5 defeats; goal difference 21:18). They are now 8 points ahead of 13th IK Frej (relegation play-off), whereas Degerfors are 3 points short of the third-placed Brage (promotion play-off). Therefore, it appears that Degerfors can challenge the top 3 places. Their recent form is average – 2 wins, 1 draw, 2 defeats in last 5 games in Superettan, but they’ve won the last 2 games. Now it’s time for an away encounter. Degerfors have collected 11 points in 7 matches on the road (3 wins, 2 draws, 2 losses; goal difference 11:8).
THE BETTING VERDICT:
All in all, I think that hosts are favourites of this clash. Varbergs dropped some points in the recent time, but only on the road. They didn’t disappoint at home so far and perhaps Varbergs may be able to get an another victory in front of their fans.
