Elfsborg will look to keep the pressure on Malmo at the top of the Swedish Allsvenskan on Monday when they take on Varbergs at home. The away side have had a season to forget and their relegation could be confirmed if they lose and other results go against them. Ahead of this David vs. Goliath clash, we’ve put together some free tips and predictions that you might want to consider.
Elfsborg vs Varbergs predictions and picks
Up until a couple of weeks ago, Elfsborg looked like they were on course for their first league title win in more than a decade. However, after back-to-back losses in the middle of September, they have dropped behind Malmo in the league table and are now in “must not lose” territory. With that in mind, they couldn’t have asked for a better opponent – bottom-of-the-league Varbergs. Expect Elfsborg to run riot here and comfortably cover this market.
Elfsborg have the best defensive record in the league and frequently win without conceding a goal – seven of their last eight wins have been to nil. Varbergs, meanwhile, have the worst offensive record in the league and have only scored 20 goals in 24 matches. This is the perfect matchup for Elfsborg and barring any lapses concentration, they should see this one out without conceding a goal.
Over 3.5 goals
Both of these teams like to be in high-scoring matches but unfortunately for the away side, they often come as a result of a heavy defeat. On the other side of the coin, Elfsborg have enjoyed several big wins over the course of the season. The last time the two sides met came in June in a friendly match where Elfsborg ran out as 6-1 winners. A similar result here wouldn’t be all that surprising.
Elfsborg vs Varbergs: Preview and team news
Despite back-to-back losses to Kalmar and Varnamo in recent weeks, Elfsborg will still believe they can win the title this season and they will if they can win all six of their remaining matches. For the match against Varbergs, they will be without Jalal Abdullai who was sent off in their win against Halmstad last time out.
After four years in the Swedish top flight, the time has come for Varbergs to return to the second tier of Swedish football. Although they can still mathematically survive, they are as good as down and confirmation could come with a loss against Elfsborg. They have punched above their weight for four seasons but it has seemingly caught up with them this year.
