Helsingborg will look to avenge last Thursday's 3-1 defeat when they host Sirius on Monday evening. It's the second fixture of a double-header between the two sides, who are in contrasting positions in the Allsvenskan standings.

Sirius snapped a five-game winless streak at Helsingborg's expense, and sit three points behind fourth-placed Norrkoping – who are struggling. Helsingborg meanwhile, beat Norrkoping 3-2 on MD14. However after losing last week, draws for their relegation rivals and a rare Ostersunds victory means they're bottom of the table.

At the halfway point in the campaign, Helsingborg can recover an unwelcome situation, but the onus is firmly on them. Will that resurgence start here? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Helsingborg vs Sirius Betting Tips

It's difficult to explain just how important this fixture could prove to be from a Helsingborg perspective. Their next five games include AIK, Kalmar and Varberg – all within a four-point gap of them currently at the bottom.

They have a winnable upcoming schedule, but successive defeats against Sirius could prompt an unwelcome precedent going forward. After all, Olof Mellberg's side have proven difficult to beat this season. They were on a seven-match unbeaten run – albeit with six draws – before leaders Malmo humbled them 4-1 on August 5.

Interestingly, both sides have conceded 25 goals already this term. However, Sirius have also scored almost double (27) the number Helsingborg have managed (14) in 15 matches, which isn't an encouraging sign.

Their top goalscorer Stefano Vecchia (7) scored one and created another, while midfielder Nahom Girmai netted a well-taken brace on Thursday. It reiterates the strength and depth at Henrik Rydstrom's disposal, particularly as far as creative-minded players are concerned.

This might seem obvious, but if Helsingborg are to have much chance of securing a result? Nullifying Vecchia throughout is key: he's among the league's best performers this term and also has four assists too.

Helsingborg vs Sirius Correct Score Predictions

Helsinborg must seize the opportunity to right last week's wrongs, but Sirius are capable of winning again. However, I'm going safe with BTTS here.
