Kalmar is having some difficulties with their performances, as they were unable to record a positive result in the last five matches. In the last round, they come with a 1:1 draw against Helsingborg, playing away from home.
The hosts were a better team during the first part, as they were able to take the lead first in the 14th minute, and generally being more dangerous. In the continuation, the balance shifted to the visitor’s side, as they were now looking better on the field. They were able to level up in the 72nd minute over Crona and took a point in this encounter.
Kalmar is at relegation leading 15th place, but they have a chance to step into a safe zone, which is only three points ahead.
Defender Lofkvist (6/0) is out injured for the hosts, while doubtful remains midfielder Froling (6/2).
Norrkoping made a setback in the last match against Ostersunds, as they came out with a 2:2 draw, at their home stadium.
The hosts were a better team in the first sixty minutes of the match, as they were able to take the double lead over Levi in the 34th and Nyman in the 56th minute. As the match continued, they lost their focus and conceded two goals in the 73rd and the 79th minute, and practically lost a certain victory in this one.
Norrkoping occupies 5th place in the standings, having four points less than European placed Elfsborg.
The guests will miss defenders Telo (7/0) and Castegren (18/1) due to injuries, while doubtful remains midfielder Smith (18/0).
Goals should be all over this one
Norrkoping is a favorite in this match, but they can not be fully trusted at the moment. On the other side, they have quite an effective opponent, as they were able to score in almost every match.
To be exact, both teams are quite effective, and in my opinion, the safest bet in this one would be that both of them will score, probably more than just once, as neither have confidence at the back.
