IFK Göteborg form and stats

With 1 Allsvenskan win, 4 draws and 5 defeats from their home games, IFK Göteborg, who have the most conceded goals (20) at home in Allsvenskan, are certainly not brimming with confidence. IFK Göteborg are slowly digging their own grave here at Nya Ullevi with the depressing streak of not having won a home league game in seven attempts. The last victory here came in the AIK match.

Happy days for Göteborg in their previous game, a Allsvenskan match away at Falkenberg (placed 16th) that ended with a 3-0 victory. Preceding that match was the home game against Hammarby that was lost 0-4.

The hosts are modest favourites in this match, with the bookmakers estimating the chance of a home win at about 50% +- five percent. It's interesting to look at how IFK Göteborg have performed under similar circumstances, so here are some numbers: When modest favourites like this (we found four games) they have won one time, drawn two and lost one.

The Göteborg fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 10 in 10 matches. Göteborg have conceded 20 goals in these home games, a significant number.

Kalmar form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Kalmar, who have the most conceded goals (35) in Allsvenskan, so far with only 9 points returning home. The records show 2-3-5 (win-draw-lose). Kalmar has drawn their two previous away games.

Home advantage was not enough for Kalmar in their previous game, as they lost their Allsvenskan-match, hosting Norrköping, 0-2. Before that, Kalmar travelled to Helsingborg and returned home with a draw after the game finished 1-1.

We have checked recent matches where Kalmar have had similar odds to win. Win-draw-lose statistics from those seven games were zero victories, zero draws and seven defeats.

Kalmar have a decent goal production going in their away games, although not fantastic. In 10 league away games 12 goals have been scored. In the opposite end, Kalmar have conceded 18 goals in their away games.

Head 2 Head

This is not the first time this season these parties meet, as the history books show this recent fixture: Kalmar - Göteborg 1-1. Göteborg-Kalmar H2H statistics last ten meetings regardless of arena: IFK Göteborg two wins, Kalmar four wins, four draws. six of these ten matches had three or more goals (over 2,5).
