Norrkoping vs Helsingborg IF by Marinos
Last years Champions Norrkoping (4-0-2) is coming to this game after a win at home against Hamarrby (3-1),that was the 3rd in 3 games the played at home this season.
Norrkoping is 1st(with goal differential) at the moment in the league table along with Malme ,Orebro and Sundsvall with 12 points and they would like to add one more win to their tally and remain on top.
Coach Jan Andersson for this game will not have the help of their main goalkeeper Mitov Nilsson (he will be out for some time / but the substitute goalie Andreas Vaikla seems to be doing better game after game) while Emir Kujović (3/1) and Nicklas Barkroth will be in the squad but in doubt if any of them will start .
Helsinborg (3-1-2 ) is coming to this game running a 3 game winning streak,in their last game at home the beat AIK in a game that could of went either side.
After a bad start in this years championship Helsinborg with these 3 consecutive wins are with 10 points(6th but only 2 points behind tonight's opponent) and the morale of the team is high and they would like to get a win against last years Champions at their home a place that they fail to win since 1993 (6-4-0) .
Coach Henrik Larsson for this game will not have the help of their regular goalkeeper Matt Pyzdrowski, Carl Johansson(6/2),Viktor Ljung and the long term absentees Mikael Dahlberg and Andreas Landgren.
Odds for this game are clearly in favour of the hosts also the tradition,but Helsinborg is in a really good form and in my opinion they don't show the degree of difficulty for this game.
I will try a bet with the goals though as both teams play attacking football,Norrkoping in all of their 6 games of this years championship ended as both teams to score & over 2,5 goals and 5/6 games of Helsinborg ended the same
(5/6 over 2,5, 6/6 both teams scored).
Also in the past 3 home games of Norrkoping we had big scores as the games ended with both teams scoring and over 3.5 goals.
So there we go,it looks that we will see another goal fest from both teams in this game.
