Venue: NP3 Arena (8000 seats)

It's the first game of the new season for GIF Sundsvall and Helsingborg. The canvas is blank, the possibilities endless.

This pitch has artifical turf, which is not Helsingborg's usual surface at their own ground. When playing on artifical turf Helsingborg have performed like this: Played 16 matches resulting in 3 wins, 7 draws and 6 defeats with the goal stats 18-28 (scored/conceded).

These teams have little in common geographically as Helsingborg have to travel 900 kilometers to reach their opponents. The trip home will be especially long if the match ends in defeat.

Helsingborg form and stats

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Helsingborg playing away and similar expectations, we found nine relevant matches. Results were two Helsingborg wins, two draws and five defeats.

It's finally time to play a game of importance again as a long period of training has passed. Helsingborg have played a number of friendly games in this period, resulting in 2 wins, 4 draws and 1 defeats from seven fixtures.

The last season was not a pleasant experience for Helsingborg as they could not accumulate enough points to survive. After only 5 victories from 30 games, relegation was a fact. Helsingborg's manager J. Lennartsson are hoping to lead the team right back to Allsvenskan at the first attempt.

Head 2 Head

As for the last ten games between these two teams, there's one Sundsvall victory, one draw and eight Helsingborg wins. Over/under statistics; six of these games ended with three goals or more, four matches with two goals or less.
