ELFSBORG V HAMMARBY
IF Elfsborg will be wanting a better result here following a 5-0 Conference League Qualifiers defeat last time out to Feyenoord.
Matches featuring IF Elfsborg have proved to be exciting affairs lately with plenty of scoring the rule rather than the exception. Over their past half dozen clashes, a grand total of 22 goals have been scored for both teams combined (at an average of 3.67 goals per game) with 15 of these being chalked up by IF Elfsborg.
After suffering a loss in their previous game against FC Basel 1893 in Conference League Qualifiers action, Hammarby IF and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
The numbers tell their own story, and Hammarby IF have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, conceding 10 goals in total. Defensively, Hammarby IF could really do with shoring things up. Let’s see if that trend will end up being sustained here.

FALKENBERG V TRELLEBORGS
Falkenberg, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 2-3 Svenska Cupen victory versus IK Oddevold.
For Falkenbergs FF, the scorers were Peter (5') and Kwame Kizito (21'). The match was eventually decided in extra time and won by Falkenbergs FF.

That aside, we must now wait to see whether such a trend shall be sustained in this upcoming match.
