There's been ups and downs for these two teams so far this season, occupying positions near the middle of the Allsvenskan table so far. Here's the Hammarby - Mjällby latest:

There should be plenty of energy on the pitch in this game, as both sides have had time to recuperate from their last game. Let's hope both teams are ready to give it all.

7-3-4 (wins/draws/losses). These are the numbers for Mjällby when playing away games on artifical turf, which is not the surface they have on their own home stadium (which has grass). Their goal statistics from those 14 matches are 26-19 (scored/conceded).

Hammarby form and stats

3 victories, 7 draws and 1 defeat. That’s what Hammarby have to build on here at Tele2 Arena in the Allsvenskan. So many draws at home for Hammarby, an amazing five in a row now.

Hammarby drew their last game, also a home match. Djurgården (placed 6th) was the opponent, 1-1 the score. Before that match, a win away at Falkenberg.

The betting market estimate that the home team has about 55-60% chance of winning this match. There could be betting value if you think differently, so to help you here are the stats from Hammarby's earlier matches at home being 55%-60% favourite: Played one game, won zero matches, drawn one and lost zero.

The Hammarby fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 16 in 11 matches. Hammarby have conceded 12 in these home matches. It's worth mentioning that 6 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 home matches.

Mjällby form and stats

Mjällby won their last game, 3-2 versus Helsingborg played at home. Prior to that result Mjällby won their away game at Assyriska BK in the Svenska Cupen. The scoreline was 5-0.

Mjällby goalie Carljohan Eriksson was high and low in the Helsingborg game, contributing seven saves towards the victory. Late drama in the previous game, when David Löfquist scored the winning goal two minutes into stoppage time to defeat Helsingborg.

As mentioned above, the odds for this match puts the home team as favourites. Perhaps this eases the pressure on the away team, who are capable of producing an upset here on a good day.
