Västerås SK: Average side (Recent Form: WLWDLD)
Västerås are on 10th place in Swedish Superettan with 18 points (4 wins, 6 draws, 4 losses; goal difference 19:14). They have currently 5 points of advantage over 13th GAIS (relegation play-off) and 7 points over 15th Osters (direct drop zone), whereas the distance to 3rd Brage (promotion play-off) is 9 points at the moment and Västerås have 1 game in hand. The team is in average shape – 2 wins, 1 draw, 2 losses in last 5 league matches. Västerås take on Jonkopings on Tuesday in the next league fixture. Västerås have collected 6 points in 6 home games to date (1 win, 3 draws, 2 defeats; goal difference 5:6).
Jonkopings: Promotion candidates (Recent Form: WWLLWW)
Jonkopings sit on 5th position in the standings with 23 points (7 wins, 2 draws, 5 defeats; goal difference 23:111). They are now 10 points ahead of the drop zone, whereas Jonkopings are 4 points short of the third-placed Brage (promotion play-off) having played 1 match less. Therefore, it appears that they are one of promotion candidates. Their recent form is fine – 3 wins, 0 draws, 2 defeats in last 5 games in Superettan. Now it’s time for an away encounter. Jonkopings have collected 7 points in 7 matches on the road (2 wins, 1 draw, 4 losses; goal difference 12:8).
THE BETTING VERDICT:
In conclusion, I believe that this might be an interesting clash with a couple of goals. Västerås are in unsafe position in the table and they need to aim for a victory in games in front of their fans. On other other hand, Jonkpings just got back-to-back victories in the league and they must go for the 3 points in order to chase the third spot so perhaps it may be an open match.
