Norrköping form and stats

The visitors, who have the most scored goals (27) away in Allsvenskan, are W5-D2-L4 on the road this term. That's in the Allsvenskan. Norrköping has recorded two wins in a row in their away matches and hold legitimate hopes of a third one.

It's the second away game in a row for Norrköping, but there's smiles all around after the 6-0 victory versus Gottne IF in the Svenska Cupen last time out. A loss against Sirius was the result prior to that, in a Allsvenskan home game.

As mentioned above, Norrköping was the only team on the pitch versus Gottne IF in their previous game, winning 6-0. This could be a tougher task. It's hard not to mention C. Nyman's lethal finishing against Gottne IF. three goals were a big reason for the important victory.
