Sundsvall vs Hammarby for the Sweden Allsvenskan championship match on Monday at the Norrporten Arena.
The GIF Sundsvall has an opportunity in this game to gather some hope of maintenance, they come to this game occupying the penultimate place of the general classification, and expect in this game to obtain a positive result to leave this distressing situation.
The host team really need a positive result, as they are currently in the relegation zone. Sundsvall needs to take advantage of home games, mainly because they get few points away from home, at least so far, despite their home record not being satisfactory either.
The home side comes from a 2-1 loss to Goteborg in their last match, and couldn’t win in the previous nine games, with six defeats and three draws. At the NP3 Arena, they drew their last two games and this season they’ve had different results with two wins, two draws and two defeats. This means that the pressure is on them, and something will have to change.
Hammarby are still in competition for a place in the Europa League as they are only six points behind the third-place. We are arriving mid-season at Allsvenskan, so it takes a lot of effort to show that they have the quality to get to Europe.
This game will be a big challenge for them as they usually suffer difficulties when they play outside their home. The away team are coming off a thunderous win by 6-2 at home against Falkenberg and are hoping to get another win at the Norrporten Arena on Monday. They are currently seventh place in the league with twenty-two points, eleven points more than their opponents. Away from the Tele2 Arena, they have three games without a win, losing two and drawing one.
The away team is focusing on Monday’s game, but GF Sundsvall has a word to say so we have to give them a chance.
