Jonkopings vs Halmstad (By: Iniestaone)

Jönköping is hosting Halmstad for the Superettan premiere

This is the first match for these two teams in the Superettan (Swedish second highest division) and I think we'll see a draw here

There is little chance of either side winning this, I would give the edge to Halmstad but the odds for the double chance aren't that remarkable so I'm going for the outcome which I think is most likely

First off, Jönköping and Halmstad had very close encounters last season which saw Halmstad win on home turf by 1-0 and the reverse fixture in Jönköping ended 1-1. For this match, a key factor is that Jönköping is missing their star attacker Orlov and even though their second main attacker Jallow has been selected for the squad its unclear how much he will play due to injury concerns. These are the two main offensive forces in the team by a milestone and with one gone and one not being fully fit I don't see Jönköping scoring more than one goal

Halmstad have been very strong in the pre season and especially the Swedish cup and one thing that will be a factor for their likely promotion this season is Andreas Johansson who has been one of the best center backs in Allsvenskan these last few years, he has joined Halmstad for this season where he played as a junior and he came from top tier team Norrköping so he brings a lot of stability to the back line. Halmstad's offense is however not that remarkable, they have a few new strikers like Sadat Karim who came from Landskrona BOiS after a huge 2017/2018 season but its hard for me to imagine him being an instant threat in his first official match. They also brought creative midfielder Allansson from Randers for this season. I think there's too many new players here for Halmstad to reach their full potential immediately

With Jönköping struggling in attack and Halmstad being solid in defense, I think the draw is the best option
