Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
Sunday’s football game at Ostgotaporten pits together Norrkoping and Helsingborg, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table in the season finale. Norrkoping are two points behind the Europa League berth ahead of the last match of the season, meaning that this has to go down as a must-win situation for the hosts. Jens Gustafsson’s troops proved their worth in back-to-back wins over Falkenbergs and Hammarby, and they are surely capable of beating the rock-bottom side on home soil.
Head coach Olof Mellberg failed to help Helsingborg avoid relegation to the Swedish second tier, and seeing that the visitors have nothing to play for in Sunday’s clash, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise. In the first half of the season Helsingborg defeated Norrkoping 3-2, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
