Sweden's Allsvenskan leaders Norrkoping face a tricky away day on Thursday, when they play fifth-placed Hacken looking to remain top.

After successive draws against Falkenbergs and Mjallby, their grip on top spot with 12 games played has weakened significantly. Second-placed Malmo are only behind them based on goals scored, so the visitors are targeting a return to winning ways.

That could prove easier said than done, against a wounded Hacken side eager to atone for their own inconsistencies recently. Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

BK Hacken vs IFK Norrkoping Betting Tips

It's been a rough start to the campaign for Hacken, who followed three successive draws with a Svenska Cup defeat. Since then, they've won four of their nine Allsvenskan fixtures (L2, D3) and this is a critical juncture in how their season advances.

Only three points separate themselves and ninth-placed Mjallby after 12 matches, so it's fairly tight across the standings. Victory for Andreas Alm's side here would represent a refreshing change of pace after their recent struggles.

However, Norrkoping are leaders for a reason. They boast two of the division's top scorers right now in Christoffer Nyman (seven) and Sead Haksabanovic (five). Defensively, they're fairly modest (15 conceded) but are also comfortable in being able to outscore opponents when under pressure.

Haksabanovic and fullback Rasmus Lauritsen have been among the league's most consistent performers as we near the halfway point in the campaign. So, who will step up here?

BK Hacken vs IFK Norrkoping Correct Score Predictions

Hacken are unsurprisingly underdogs here, given Norrkoping's attacking qualities and the fact they're defending top spot on Thursday. After some sketchy recent form, it's not exactly a free hit for the hosts but a win would prove they can challenge for the European places this term.

Initially, I was going to pick BTTS here. But their recent H2H record is firmly in Norrkoping's favour – ten successive victories – and that cannot be ignored. I'm predicting an away win.
