Dalkurd vs Kalmar FF
Dalkurd face Kalmar in the 7th round of the Sweden Allsvenskan.
Dalkurd is a new promoted club, which team finished 2nd in the lower league and their main job is to stay in Allsvenskan for the next season. Their start looks not so bad, at least they are not in the relegation zone. It's tru athat they lost all of their 4 visits till now with minimal difference, but they also got 1 win and a draw in their two home games. I think they will rely even on the games at home to gain more and more points to save their team from relegation. Dalkurd have a lot of foreigners in their first team, maybe half of them are not Swedish players in comparison with Kalmar where most of the players are Swedish. I don't know if its advantage to have players from so different countries in the main squad but I think it works when you have finished 2nd in Superettan and started earning points against the best football teams in Sweden.
During the seasons I know Kalmar not only with the Elm brothers, but that you can expect the best and the worst thing from the players in the club, no matter what their current form is. Kalmar is a team which can take a point or the full amount of points against the best teams in the league like Malmo or AIK and then to lose against a team in the relegation zone, especially when they play as visitors. I think we will see such kind of situation here once again. Last round Kalmar defeated Malmo at home 3:0 and that was a huge blow for the champions, while Dalkurd showed fighting spirit and they leaded 2:0 against Orebro as visitors until the 80th minute, but finally lost the match 3:2 against really strong team like Orebro. There is no doubt they will also start to win points as visitors, but now the points at home are vital and much more important.
Dalkurd with a win and draw at home till the start of the season, while Kalmar are with 1 win and 2 losses as visitors. Together with the fact that Kalmar made a huge win against Malmo and now they have to face a new-promoted team.. I can smell the surprise here. Maybe that's one of the reasons bookies to make the home team favorite in this match. I think Dalkurd have really good chance to win at home against Kalmar, which team finished at 12th position last season and is not one of the best in the league for sure, especially as visitors.
