Kalmar vs Helsingborg Match Preview
Kalmar drew 1-1 last time out at home to Östersunds it was their third successive draw and their fourth from their last six. They sit 11th in the table with one victory, five draws and one defeat from their opening seven. This is not far from their performance last season where they finished in tenth position in Allsvenskan.
At the Guldfågeln Arena, they have drawn all three they have played this season with two of them ending 1-1 and the other 2-2. Pape Diouf has found the back of the net two times from his three appearances in front of his own fans. Seven of the eight goals that Kalmar fans have seen at their ground this season have come in the second-half.
Helsingborg drew 1-1 at home to Djurgården last time out and while a useful point stretched their winless run to four. They sit 12th in the table and a season of struggle is to be expected after their promotion last season. Rasmus Jonsson has been a bright spot with the Swedish forward netting three times.
Away from the Olympia, they have struggled losing each of their previous three shipping eight times and scoring just two. In each of these three Helsingborg have found themselves going in behind at the break and then going on to lose the match. The two road goals they have netted this campaign have come in the final five minutes.
The hosts are strong favourites to win this and while they are deserved favourites the odds look a little short on a team with just one win all season. Helsingborg have been poor on the road though so they offer no appeal.
A better angle of attack is to take both teams to score as this happened in each of the last six for Kalmar and six of seven for Helsingborg. Given each of the last three the home side have played and two of the last three for the visitors have ended 1-1 this also looks worth a correct score interest.
