Elfsborg vs Goteborg IFK (By: Iniestaone)
Both Elfsborg and Göteborg are having bad seasons so far, Elfsborg is having a harder time though as they are both below IFK on the table (14th vs 10th) and we aren't used to seeing Elfsborg this bad while we have been somewhat accustomed to IFK being a mid table team these recent years.
I think this one will end in very few goals, I'm tempted to go for another draw but seeing as my last two draw picks failed I'll opt out for the under 2.5 as the draw I am expecting here would most likely be a 0-0/1-1 draw anyway so the under 2.5 pick makes more sense when taking all things into consideration.
Elfsborg has scored 6 goals in 8 matches which is incredible, they are usually one of the best goal scoring teams in Sweden but nothing is clicking in their attack right now. I watched their 0-5 loss to Häcken and they gave away four of the goals for free with dreadful gameplay that usually comes with a low self-esteem in underperforming teams.
IFK has been very up and down so far, they too have issues in their attack but they've at least scored 10 in their 8 matches.
I see a very careful approach from Elfsborg here whose main goal will surely be to sustain and not concede a goal. IFK is a very hard working team that lacks firepower up front so we will most likely see a match where the majority of the 90 minutes will be played on the midfield with short exchanges between these two struggling teams.
