BK Häcken v IFK Göteborg Betting Tips and Predictions
It’s time for the BK Häcken v IFK Göteborg derby in Gothenburg. Häcken is playing better and better every day that goes by. IFK Göteborg was one of the candidates to win the league, but they are fighting for survival at the moment. A derby is always exciting, but today it will be a fun to see if Häcken can take advantage of the bad form that IFK Göteborg is in.
Our Prediction For This Game:
Häcken has been playing really well lately. They have scored 17 goals in the latest 6 games in allsvenskan. IFK Göteborg are having some huge problems, but they will have Tobias Hysén back in the team. Bravida Arena, BK Häckens home ground has artificial grass, which makes it hard for any guests to win. But a derby is derby, and BK Häcken have not won since 2011. If it was not for that, a home win would be a great bet. However, now we have found much more value – which is to play over 2.5 goals. 888sport gives us 1.65 in odds for that.
Players like Erik Friberg and Pauhlino have been a great addition for BK Häcken. Pauhlino is in joint first place for most goals scored with his 14 goals. Häcken did not have a great start, but lately they have been playing much better. The 5 straights home wins says it all! In the last 6 games, there has been just the one defeat against AIK. In total they have scored 17 goals. Out of the 14 previous derbies where Häcken played at home, 12 of them have ended in over 2.5 goals.
This season was not a good one for IFK Göteborg. The team is close to the bottom line, with only 6 points. They desperately need more points now. The team has lost too many games because of mistakes which they have to avoid making; today is a great day to start doing so.
Reason for and against the tip:
✓ They have played over 2.5 goals in 12 of 14 previous meetings.
✓ IFK Göteborg will take some chances today which will open up the game.
✘ Häcker really want to win today, so them may park the bus after 1-0.
Tip: Over 2.5
Odds: 1.65 @888Sport
