And while Sweden was a pleasant surprise at this year’s World Cup in Russia, in this country the championship continues after a short break with a derby of this 12th round between Djurgarden and Norrkoping, since the host is fourth with just one point less than the third-ranked Norrkoping. Both teams are in very good shape and Djurgarden has made five wins, while Norrkoping made four triumphs in the same period and a draw in the last round. Last season when Djurgarden was the host, they played a great match that ended with a score of 3-3.
Djurgarden was certainly not satisfied with the break in the championship, which lasted for over a month. Namely, just before the break, this team played the way they were expected and they made wins that brought them back to the top of the table and now even the first place is not too far, as the leader Hammarby has only six points more. Prior to the mentioned positive series they had a series of four duels without a win, of which they lost three times and dropped to ninth place, and then they finally started playing better.
In that positive series is also a victory in the Cup finals over Malme, when they celebrated with a convincing 3-0. They celebrated four times in the championship and in the last two duels, they were very efficient because they were first defeated by Geteborg with 3-1, and then before the break by Sirius with 5-1 as guests. Striker Kadewere has great in that duel with four goals scored. Completely the same team played in two duels before the break, so we do not expect any changes now.
Norrkoping did not have any oscillations in the previous season and they lost only two games, with the proviso that they also had their best results before the break. Both defeats were experienced with 2-1, with the proviso that Trellborg lost on their field and this was the only loss in front of their home supporters. They also lost against Hammarby, and they also played two draws, of which the second one was played before the break with 3-3 against AIK when they lost with 2-0 and then they managed to score three goals, however, they received another and they won just one point.
Prior to that, they had four wins and they received a goal in only one match, which was a triumph over Dalkurge with 4-2. There were lots of ups and downs, but their strikers have compensated for all the lapses in their defence, while they overcome Sundsvall minimally, thanks to a reservist Skrabba. Because of that goal, he was given the opportunity to play in the derby against AIK from the first minute, which was the only change. Their midfielder Blomqvist is injured, and we expect to return the offensive midfielder Sigurdsson.
Both teams were in good shape before the break, and now they hope they can continue at the same pace. Djurgarden and Norrkoping have also shown enviable efficiency, so we will in their mutual duel forecast goals on both sides.
