Falkenberg form and stats

The home team are moderate favourites in this game. How does Falkenberg handle that role? We have found five games in our database similar to this one, based on the home odds. The stats for these games are two wins, zero draws and three defeats.

With the first game of the season soon underway, it's time to look at the results from the Falkenberg friendly games in pre-season: Falkenberg played six friendlies, won 0, drew 2 and lost 4. If you are really into statistics you might appreciate knowing that Falkenberg scored 7 goals and conceded 14 in these six games.

Disaster struck Falkenberg last season as they could not defend their status as a Allsvenskan team. With 16 defeats from 30 games, and only 5 wins, relegation could not be avoided. Falkenberg are hopeful of bouncing straight back up, but need to improve upon their home record from last season of W3 D4 L8.
