After a great match at the opening of the season against Östersunds, Hammarby does not seem to be the same team in the next four games. They won just one point away against Elfsborg and lost against Mjallby and AIK. In the 1/4 finals of the Cup after extra time, they were eliminated by Gothenburg and the biggest problems are in the defense line. For today’s match, coach Stefan Billborn cannot count on suspended defender Richard Magyar, who is perhaps the best player in defense. The newly promoted team Varbergs, opened the season very well and even the hottest fans did not dream that after 4 rounds, their team will be in 3rd place in the table. They showed a great game in all games, and their offensive potential is especially pleasing because after Norrkoping they have the best attack in Allsvenskan.
