Aberdeen vs Hacken
Aberdeen will be hosting Hacken today for a friendly encounter. Having won just a single match in 8 goals and losing three among them major defeats to Rangers conceding 4 goals and Dundee United allowing 3 goals at the same time scoring none. However they are favourites to take home advantage to push for a return to winning ways.
In what is a huge contrast, their Sweden counterparts Hacken will come into this match in a very fantastic form having lost only a single match in also 8 they have played across all competitions. They have impressively won 5 of those eight with three of the wins coming in their recent matches in a row against AIK, Kalmar and Norkopoing. They will be looking for a build up to this amazing performance today leaving this match a heated one as either side would not want to lose it here.
Gent vs Valerenga
The last 9 games have seen Gent win 6 of them losing only one that came against FC Utrecht with their most recent match being a narrow win over Lille. Today serves as a golden opportunity to showcase their continued nice display on the pitch and remain with higher chances of getting a win here.
Valerenga bring in severe competition despite their recent loss to Haugesund which is their only in 7 matches. Their fight against loss is clear evident with 4 draws in those seven winning two of them. They will be keen to make life difficult for the home side Gent in a really tough clash.
Helsingborg vs Varnamo
Round of 8 of the Sweden Superettan will feature these two sides who are concidentally 2 positions and 2 points away from each other. The visitors are ahead at the 5th spot but have loosened their grip currently with two loses in 4 recent encounters. This is very different when it comes to Helsingborg who have by far maintained a good run of form having won all the last 4 games netting 8 goals and notably conceding none. It will be interesting to see how it ends up here with the hosts hoping for a win that will ensure they go past their opponents who are seeking to extend their lead.
Portland vs Los Angeles
