Two struggling Allsvenskan sides clash on Monday evening, when Goteborg host Norrkoping. Goteborg have drawn three successive league fixtures and won just two games this term, while their visitors are enduring a run of poor form too.

Jens Gustafsson's side sit fourth, but have slipped away from title contention after three consecutive defeats. They're on a five-match winless run, which is far from ideal at this crucial juncture in the campaign.

So, will either of these teams manage to earn all three points in a must-win fixture for both? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Goteborg vs Norrkoping Betting Tips

Norrkoping's latest defeat to Hammarby last week would have hurt the most.

Both teams hit the woodwork twice, but after dominating without reward against Helsingborgs three days earlier, you could excuse them for expecting a little fortune. Lars Gerson netted his third goal of the campaign from the penalty spot to equalise, after Kalle Bjorklund's early opener.

Heading for a 1-1 draw, which would have arrested their losing slump, things took a turn for the worse in stoppage-time. Abdulrahman Khalili bundled home the winner in the fifth minute of extra-time after an inswinging free-kick wasn't cleared to safety.

After narrow 2-1 and 3-2 losses against BK Hacken and the aforementioned Helsingborgs, now only a point separates them from sixth place. Halfway through the campaign, how did they get to this precarious situation? Inconsistent results and suspect defending have combined, which is something that Goteborg will look to take advantage of here.

Norrkoping's top goalscorer Christoffer Nyman (seven) will be keen to end his five-game drought here. Goteborg have only kept two clean sheets this term, so it'll be interesting to see how they approach this fixture.

Goteborg vs Norrkoping Correct Score Predictions

Norrkoping have endured some poor form in recent weeks, yet still remain ten points and seven places above Monday's hosts. Considering that and a superior H2H record – only four defeats in 19 meetings – I'm inclined to back them here.
