IFK Norrkoping vs BK Hacken Prediction – Allsvenskan – 07/18

IFK Norrkoping vs BK Hacken prediction on July 18, 2021. Both IFK Norrkoping and BK Hacken are in dire need of points for the goal of winning tickets to the European Cup. 3 consecutive victories help Hacken overcome the crisis at the beginning of the season while Norrkoping if it wins all 3 points, will rise to the top 3. The encounter at Idrottspark promises a lot of drama because both are in high form.

IFK Norrkoping Overview

IFK Norrkoping vs BK Hacken Prediction

IFK Norrkoping this season tends to play openly at home, which is very evident in the statistics of nearly 3 goals each game. The 4th place confirms ambition, in which it is impossible not to mention 3 victories and undefeated after 5 home matches of Gustafsson’s men. 

The attacking performance of 1.8 goals at Idrottspark was very impressive, especially in the 3-2 victory over defending champion Malmo. However, the defense has not been able to reassure the fans when it only kept a clean sheet in the last 1/5 rounds. With 2 consecutive victories before the reception of Hacken and the advantages, Norrkoping will not hesitate to play high. One more exciting match at Idrottspark is being awaited by experts.

BK Hacken Overview

After the first 7 rounds only drew and lost, BK Hacken won the last 3 matches to return to the race. However, Hogmo’s erratic away form is still a question mark, with only 1 victory after 6 marches this season. The defense is an exploited weakness, averaging 1.5 times per game including a difficult 2-3 defeat against Orebro. 

The situation of attacking as a defender has become familiar, 10 rounds have passed the strikers opened fire 15 times but also received 15 goals. Not surprising if Hacken gets a goal in the next match, but the ability to keep a clean sheet against the power of Norrkoping is also very fragile.
