Draw

With our first Elfsborg vs Hacken prediction we deny the champions the honour to begin their defence with a win. We think the game will end in a draw and we base that on the fact that 4 of the last 6 H2H clashes had ended in draws, with Hacken unable to win any of those 6 matches. Hacken also tend to accept draws on the road and in 2022 8 of their 12 draws, in all competitions, were away from home.

BTTS

Our next free betting tip is for the game to have goals and for both teams to be scoring them. The last clash between these two ended 4-4 and it continued a trend of 5 consecutive H2Hs in which both sides scored. Also, Hacken saw 7 of their last 10 away league games in 2022 having BTTS outcomes.

Over 0.5 First Half Goals

Our final Elfsborg vs Hacken prediction is for the game to have at least 1 first-half goal. In fact, in the last 4 H2Hs, there were at least 2 first-half goals scored and these two teams never go easy on each other early. Also, in 2022 Elfsborg were the second-fastest starting team on home turf with 59.4% of their goals at home scored in the first half.

Elfsborg vs Hacken Lineups and Team News

Elfsborg

Elfsborg had a quiet off-season and hardly added much quality to their ranks. In fact, the squad lost 2 regulars from 2022 but it seems the gaffer is happy to continue developing those players that impressed near the end of last season when Elfsborg won 6 out of 8 games.

The health of the squad is good anyway and Elfsborg enters this match at full strength. The only new player that is likely to be involved is wide midfielder Boman. Baidoo is one to watch as he will be given an advanced role in midfield and is expected to be scoring plenty of goals.

Hacken

Hacken won the 2022 title thanks to their away form. They never lost an away game last season (W9 D6). However, in the winter the 2022 Allsvenskan Golden Boot winner Jeremejeff left so now Hacken need to find goals from elsewhere. They seem to be doing just fine as a series of 5 wins saw them only just reach the Swedish Cup final.

Hacken have issues for the opening round with 4 sidelined players and 2 more doubtful. Crucial during 2022 playmaker Trpcevksi and starting winger Sana are both sidelined. So are Youssef and Turgott. Also, Carlsson and Uchenna threaten to miss. This limits the options but Hacken still have lots of quality and nothing much to worry about.
