Sirius vs Elfsborg Swedish Allsvenskan Date: 14 May 2022, Saturday Kick-off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET Venue: Studenternas IP (Uppsala).
Sirius ended their horrendous three-loss run with a 0-2 victory away at Varberg on Sunday. Midfielders Moustafa Zeidan and Laorent Shabani scored their first goals of the season on the occasion to help the team pick up their third win of the campaign.
Head coach Daniel Backstrom was finally happy to see his men keeping a clean sheet after three dreadful defensive performances beforehand.
Nonetheless, we have to say that Sirius were lucky to avoid conceding last weekend at Varberg who had plenty of chances to convert in the final third on the occasion.
Sirius, who had previously conceded at least three goals in each of the three tough subsequent defeats to Mjallby, Hammarby, and Djurgarden, will now face a much tougher challenge in an attempt to keep a clean sheet against Elfsborg.
The visitors head into the match as the team with the best attacking record in the league after seven rounds. They have scored as many as 14 goals in the opening 6 outings, before playing a goalless draw in Monday’s derby against Djurgarden.
Elfsborg are on a great run of form these days. They won two and drew one of the last three Allsvenskan fixtures, shipping just one goal in the process.
Unlike Sirius who only have four players with one goal to their names so far in the season, Elfsborg have two men with three goals in the opening seven matches of the campaign (Rasmus Alm and Sveinn Aron Gudjohnsen).
Sirius vs Elfsborg Head-to-head
Elfsborg were also more successful in the recent head to head clashes as they will come into this tie on the back of two straight wins over Sirius.
Elfsborg bagged five unanswered goals in the last two victories over Sirius.
The teams have three wins apiece in their previous seven H2H encounters at Studenternas IP in Uppsala.
Sirius vs Elfsborg Prediction
Sirius have huge problems to keep things quiet at the back at the beginning of the season. They are now set to play the best attacking line in the league after seven rounds.
We will go with the away win as the main option at the odds of 1.60, while you can hardly make a mistake backing the visitors to net two or more goals on Saturday at the 1.57 odds.
