Elfsborg was unexpectedly bad in Ostersunds and suffered a 3:1 defeat. They had the possession, but they were really weak in the last line and paid, while in the 96th minute reduced the score to 3:1. Thus ended the series of three victories, and remained at 3rd place with 4 points difference from the top. The team started the year with the aim of repeating last year’s course, and for now, the course is very good, and everything is open. The recently acquired Gudjohnsen (4/1) is suspended, and there are no reports of any new injury problems.
A few days after the heavy 0:3 home defeat by Juventus, Malmo draws a 1:1 draw at home against Djurgarden in a derby. They lost their great form due to the hard schedule and many injury problems. Their form is really bad without a win in the last 5 matches in all competitions, while coach Tomasson can’t count on Christiansen (15/4 suspended), Rieks (13/4), Knudsen (12/1), Toivonen (8/0), Lewicki (6/0), Moisander (1/0), and Pena (1/0).
Elfsborg had the opportunity to be at the top and with good home form, and a lot of problems in the guest’s team, I expect to give their best and won important three points.
