Match: Goteborg vs Djurgarden
Competition: Sweden – Allsvenskan
Time / Date: 20:00h / 24 May 2018
Venue: Gamla Ullevi, Goteborg.
Djurgarden are hoping to be able to maintain their good form with another win in this match against Goteborg and to make it four in a row.
The Blaranderna season started a bit slow and hard, but in the last three games, they secured three impressive victories with not allowing a single goal in them. These wins were 3:0 against Malmo for the Cup, and 1:0 and 2:0 against Dalkurd and Orebro in Allsvenskan (All three games were at home). But Ozcan Melkemichel has to work a lot over his team’s trips away from their stadium, in five games so far only have one win in the first round against Ostersund, the other four matches are a draw and three losses in which they fail to score a goal.
Anyway, for Djurgarden this game it will be quite difficult to confront Goteborg who performs great if they have a day, this was seen in the match against Malmo in which they won 1:2 away from their home. Still, Poya Asbaghi and his boys hardly keep up at some pace, and this was seen soon where after two wins they recorded a draw and a loss. The same insecurity is seen in their home games where The Comrades have recorded two wins and the same number of losses so far.

*Only Goteborg home games.
In four of the last five games, both teams scored at least one goal, in that time Goteborg won 2 times and lost only once in the last match between the two teams as they where hosts with result 1:3 (one of those games was a friendly match).
I expect after a good series of matches for the guests, in this game to approach with cautious tactics and try to keep another clean sheet, which leads me to think of under 3 goals in the match can win here.
Still, looking at the form of the host and the h2h games, my second offer is for the Goteborg not to lose the match at least.
