Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
Norrkoping will be looking to bounce back from a shocking 4-2 loss to Sirius when they face Varbergs at their Ostgotaporten. The league leaders experienced all sorts of problems at the back in Sunday’s clash, and, as a result, they are now only four points clear of second-place Malmo in the standings. Norrkoping aim to return to winning ways as soon as possible, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in the midweek game.
Midfielder Simon Thern remains in the recovery room for the hosts. Varbergs, on the other hand, came from behind to share the spoils with AIK in their last league fixture. The newcomers continue to impress on their debut in Allsvenskan, but beating Norrkoping on the road is easier said than done. Anyhow, both teams to score betting option should be considered as Norrkoping’s defence looked pretty shaky in the 4-2 defeat to Sirius. Varbergs midfielder Joakim Lindner is likely to miss the game with injury.
