Djurgården will welcome Helsingborg to Tele2 Arena for a matchday 16 fixture in Sweden Allsvenskan. The last meeting on 30th August 2020 ended in a Helsingborg 3-1 win. Both sides have met sixteen times in the most recent seasons. Djurgården has won 5 matches, and Helsingborg triumphed in 4. Recent outings average 2.94 goals, while both teams score 63% of the time.
Djurgården’s last game in the Sweden Allsvenskan against Sirius at home ended in a 4-0 win. Although Blåränderna (Blue Stripes) played less with the ball than their opponent, it was enough to get the result they were hoping for. Djurgården was dangerous in both halves and scored in the 26th, 39th, 49th and 57th minute.
Helsingborg’s previous game in the competition versus Mjällby ended in an away 2-1 loss. Helsingborg didn’t turn up and failed to create clear cut chances for most of the game. Helsingborg played better before halftime and scored in the 27th minute.
Since the start of the season, Djurgården is more dominant at home. They have three wins out of 3 games on home soil. Although Djurgården is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 33% home clean sheets.
Helsingborg has picked up 4 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Helsingborg wins 0.00 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Helsingborg kept a clean sheet in just 0% of their visits.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Recently they enjoy playing at home, having won three consecutive matches. Järnkaminerna (Iron Stoves) is yet to lose at home, being undefeated in three games.
This season hasn’t unfolded as planned, and Di Röe (The Reds) haven’t tasted an away victory at all. The visitors have lost 100% of all games on the road while conceding on average 1.67 goals in the process. Furthermore, they are in really bad away form, having lost three consecutive games on the road.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Djurgården wins on average 3.00 points per home game, compared to 0.00 points per away game for Helsingborg. My prediction is Djurgården to win.
I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 3 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 84% of Djurgården’s home and Helsingborg’s away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.
Both sides have plenty of quality in the attack which often results in high-scoring games. I don’t think this one on Thursday will be any different. On average, both teams score in 67% of Djurgården’s home and Helsingborg’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
