Sweden Allsvenskan Predictions

27/09/2021

Degerfors - AIK

A home win is not something we would recommend betting on at the odds of 6.00 – but you’re probably aware of that already. It would take a miracle for Degerfors to pull off even a draw, let alone a win as underdogs.

We are likely going to see AIK triumph this Monday, though Degerfors do have a fighting chance. Maybe the home field advantage will be enough to spur them into a surprise draw or victory, though it’s not a probable outcome.

Halmstad - Sirius

By pricing a home win at around 2.20, the bookies made it clear that Halmstad are the favourites. Overall, though, the difference between the teams is not big, and the match can end either way.

The matchup this Monday is rather one-sided, with Sirius seen as the clear underdogs. Most bookmakers online have priced their victory at 3.70, which is enough to doubt such an outcome will happen.

Halmstad’s latest away game at Mjällby was an inconclusive stalemate which persisted t... read more

IFK Göteborg - Kalmar

Though the match can honestly go either way, IFK Göteborg will be at a bit of a disadvantage. Their victory is priced at 2.60 despite the home-field advantage, so they’ll need to bring their A-game.

With the betting odds being what they are, this match could still go either way. Still, the fact that Kalmar are generally the weaker team makes this match an uphill battle for them.

Although IFK Göteborg’s previous Allsvenskan outing at Hammarby was a crushing away loss, it... read more

Mjällby - Elfsborg

The hosts have everything stacking up against them in this match including the betting odds of 3.45. Mjällby will indeed find it very hard to beat Elfsborg here but nothing is impossible if you try hard enough.

Elfsborg should be able to win this one, but such an outcome won’t come easily. The 2.30 betting odds on them winning indicate that it will be a close match - Mjällby are no pushovers.

Östersunds FK - Djurgården

The game is heavily lopsided in the visitors’ favour – for instance, most bookies are offering 6.50 odds on a home win. The hosts are no doubt in a difficult situation and don’t have much hope of overcoming Djurgården.

If you’re just looking for a simple 1X2 football bet, we suggest backing the away team in this match. Djurgården are clearly more likely to win this matchup, though Östersunds FK are more than able to put up a good fight.

Häcken - Hammarby

The hosts have everything stacking up against them in this match including the betting odds of 2.60. Häcken will indeed find it very hard to beat Hammarby here but nothing is impossible if you try hard enough.

Hammarby are coming into this match as underdogs, though the difference is not overwhelming. Even so, they’re not all that likely to win. An Away Win bet is priced at 2.75 with top online bookies, which could bring a decent profit.

Norrköping - Varberg BoIS

With the 1.73 being what they are, we don’t expect anything other than a home win. Pulling off anything else would be a gargantuan task for Varberg BoIS, so we’d stay away unless you’re looking for a long shot on purpose.

It’s hard to believe even the most optimistic Varberg BoIS fans are expecting them to triumph at Norrköping this Sunday. It’s a completely one-sided matchup, and the hosts should have no problems steamrolling their opponents.

Sweden Allsvenskan Results

Allsvenskan History and General Info

Allsvesnskan, which translates to The All-Swedish, is the top-level league for men’s association football clubs in Sweden. It is also sometimes referred to as Fotbollsallsvenskan, meaning the Football All-Swedish.

The UEFA system of league coefficients ranks the Allsvenskan as the 20th best top-tier national football league in Europe, based on performances in European competitions over the past five years. This makes it the second-best league in Scandinavia, after the Danish Superliga in the 16th place.

It was founded in 1924 under the same name, and remains one of the precious few football leagues in Europe that haven’t really changed names or formats in all that time. However, it did have a sort of predecessor in the form of Svenska Serien - the Swedish Series. The Series was divided into the southern and northern group and lasted between 1910 and 1924.

Eventually, the Allsvenskan consolidated all of the best football teams into a single, unified league. Despite being the highest leagues in the country, however, neither the Series nor the Allsvenksan were initially used to decide the title of Swedish Champions. That distinction only came about in 1931, before which the honour went to the Mästerskapet football cup.

It should be noted, however, that during these first decades large parts of Sweden were not allowed to put up their best teams for participation in these competitions. For instance, only teams from Stockholm and Gothenburg originally participated in the Cup, and teams from the island of Gotland and the Norrland region were only allowed into Allsvenskan in the 1930s. As such, whether these early years should be used for determining things like the teams’ total number of titles is still debatable.

Seasons run between spring and fall, usually from late Match or early April to the beginning of November. The league consists of 16 of Sweden’s best professional football teams. Each of these themes plays against every other team twice – once away, and once on their home turf. This results in 30 matches per team throughout the season, or 240 matches total.

The teams are then ranked using a point system in which every game win earns a team 3 points and a draw earns 1 point. The two lowest-ranked teams are relegated to the Superettan, or “the super one” league – which is Sweden’s second-tier football league. Conversely, the two best-placed teams from the Superettan are promoted to replace them.

Additionally, the third lowest team in Allsvenskan has to play a one-off relegation play-off against the third-best team from Superettan.

The team with the most points at the end of a season are crowned Swedish Champions and instantly qualify for the UEFA Champions League. Additionally, they are awarded a gold medal. The runners-up and the team in the third spot qualify for the Europa League, along with the winners of the Swedish Cup, and are awarded the Large Silver and Small Silver medals respectively.

Malmo FF currently boast the biggest number of titles over the years, with 23 league victories to their name. Also, they have the record of most consecutive seasons, with 63 consecutive participations between 1936 and 1999. The honour of most participations, however, goes to AIK Fotboll, with 91 total seasons and 6 titles.

Other notable clubs include IFK Goteburg with 13 titles over 87 seasons, IFK Norrkoping with 13 titles over 79 seasons, Helsingborgs IF with 7 titles over 67 seasons, Djurgårdens IF with 7 titles over 64 seasons, and IF Elfsborg with 7 titles over 67 seasons.

Allsvenksan’s overall top scorer is Sven Jonasson, who scored 252 goals playing got Elfsboerg between 1927 and 1941. The record for most appearances, though, is held by Sven Andersson –a goalkeeper who made 431 appearances during his career.

Allsvenskan Title Challengers

One of the most important factors you have to know for effective Allsvenskan league betting is the greatest and successful teams, which have the best chance of taking home the title. That said, the previous 2020 season in the Swedish top tier of professional football left anyone trying to make reliable Allsvenskan betting predictions in a tough spot. The final table was in quite a disarray compared to the previous years.

For example, despite high expectations, Hammarby registered their worst performance since 2016. The same is true for AIK, who finished 9th despite being one of the league’s favourites. Conversely, BK Häcken rose up to third place as a sort of wildcard team, and Mjällby finished 5th even though they were freshly promoted.

Making some sense out of this mess can be challenging, so we’ll refer to outright Allsvenskan betting odds for some guidance. As the league’s most consistent performers, Malmö are the clear favourites, with To Win odds ranging from 1.5 to 2.20. The 2019 champions Djurgardens are their biggest rivals this season with 3.25.

It’s somewhat possible for AIK to make a big return as well, though even the most optimistic bookies don’t price their victory under 5.00. Finally, Häcken are probably your best bet if you’re hoping for an upset, though the odds are all over the place, ranging from 4.5 to 10.0. Elfsborg are another possible contender due to their solid outing last year. To be fair, though, a Top 3 finish is possible for Elfsborg, but a title is quite unlikely.

Malmö FF

The Allsvenskan is a bit notorious for its results being all over the place with each coming season. Some say it’s one of its charms. However, through all that mess, Malmö shines through as one of the only favourites in the classic sense of the word. They’ve ended up in the top 3 almost every year since their rise to prominence in 2010. They also picked up 6 titles in that period, one of which was in 2020. Statistically speaking, they’re the most reliable squad the Swedish top flight has to offer, and the best pick if you want a relatively safe Allsvenskan outright bet.

Their lead last year was quite comfortable with almost 10 points over the runners-up Elfsborg. That said, the 30 concessions recorded during the proceedings were the highest since 2015. All of this signals a move from the defensively-oriented strategies we’ve seen in the past. To further cement this point, they’ve loaned PAOK’s Antonio Colak for the season as a striker. This is the closest thing they’ve had to a classic play-making forward in years.

That said, midfielder Anders Christiansen remains their most prominent member of the starting 11. His name became synonymous with everything Malmö and their approach to football – consistent, well-rounded, and dependable.

Other notable arrivals include attacking midfielder Sergio Peña, and backs Niklas Moisander and Martin Olsson. Isaac Kiese Thelin, to the disappointment of many fans, even though his performance was undeniably solid last year.

Djurgårdens IF

The reason most bookies view Djurgardens so favourably is that they’re not as volatile as most other Allsvenskan teams. Over the past 5 years or so, they’ve been steadily climbing the ranks from a mid-table team to one of the title challengers. While they failed to repeat the outstanding success of their 2019 triumph last year, at least they managed to stay in the Top 4. Wildcard teams rising to the top and then crumbling as their champion squads scatter to the winds is an all too familiar scene in the Swedish top flight.

However, traditional Djurgardens betting predictions can’t reliably call them serious contenders for the title. While their lineup has no obvious weaknesses, Djurgardens doesn’t truly excel in any department either. One commendable factor is that they always manage to keep their composure in away games, though.

A notable part of their approach is active defenders who take part in slow build-ups and keep up the pressure at all times. Jacob Une Larsson and Hjalmar Ekdal are essential in such roles. When it works, it’s quite a sight to behold. The strategy sometimes falls flat, though, and the result is that this team has the lowest number of draw games in the league. They either win or lose, with little in between.

The summer period was an overall letdown for them, too. Fredrik Ulvestad, Jesper Karlström, and Jonathan Augustinsson all left over the summer, and all 3 were members of the winning 2019 squad. That said, this will likely merely leave coach Thomas Lagerlöf with fewer choices and a shallower lineup. Their core starting 11 should be at least as strong as last year, but with more experience.

AIK Fotboll

One of the biggest questions raised by the 2020 Allsvenskan season was – what happened to AIK? Their defence was sub-par, and their attackers were lethargic and completely unable to score, resulting in less than 30 by the end. Overall, the 8th place was a complete debacle, especially considering the championship win just 2 years prior.

To be fair to them, though, they’ve still in the top 3 in almost every season in the past 10 years. Interestingly enough, this isn’t even the first time such a disaster happened. Back in 2010, they followed a title win with an 11th placement, yet they managed to climb right back up to number 2. While this may give hope to their supporters, it’s important to remember that this downfall in 2010 was the result of a lineup gutted after a title win. AIK don’t have that excuse this time.

Still, plenty of bookies are fairly optimistic. With their new goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt between the posts, they’ll have a more reliable backup should their fairly narrow defensive line fail. However, Paulos Abraham left the squad, leaving the team in an even more dire need of strikers.

Allsvenskan Relegation Favourites

To give you the best ideas for betting on the Allsvenskan league, we will also go over some of the teams most likely to be relegated to the Superettan.

Halmstads BK

This team’s history in Sweden’s top-flight football is full of ups and downs, but they’ve had trouble getting back into the Allsvenskan recently. They spent the 2010 to 2017 period in a series of promotions and relegations, after which they struggled to climb back up for 3 seasons. They performed incredibly well in last year’s Superettan, but such a storied history still gives most bookies reason to doubt they’ll see much success this year.

Örebro SK

Although Örebro is more-or-less established as a mid-table team at this point, 10.00 odds for a Top 8 finish are not a good sign. There are several reasons why bookmakers are so pessimistic with their Allsvenskan outright betting odds. First of all, coach Axel Kjäll, who led them into the most consistent period in recent memory, has retired. Secondly, most of the squad’s backline left the squad. Instead of trying to replace them, the new roster was filled with a series of wingers, strikers, and attacking midfielders. Minor clubs trying to play aggressively rarely ends well.

Östersunds FK

Although this club was founded only recently in 1996 and climbed into the top flight in 2015, cracks are already beginning to show in terms of their finances. By 2017, they had a fairly decent lineup, but they’ve been steadily declining down the table ever since. Between last season and now, coach Amir Azrafshan was forced to let go of the few notable players that remained. All this left Östersunds in dire straits.

Allsvenskan Top Players

Now, let’s have a quick run-down of Allsvenskan’s best and most valuable individual players.

Anders Christiansen

A part of Malmo’s roster since 2018, few can boast the kind of consistency Christiansen has recorded. Though he rarely finds himself as one of the season’s top goalscorers, he never fails to perform at least decently – a true veteran of many leagues. To be fair, scoring is not even his main concern as a connecting midfielder, but that hasn’t stopped him from achieving a 2.14 PPG with over 2,000 minutes in Allsvenskan fields. It’s also worth noting that he was, in fact, the fifth-best Allsvenskan goalscorer in 2020 with 13 goals over 23 appearances.

Jacob Une Larsson

Djurgårdens’ ever-dependable defender, Larsson is a notable Swedish national team member with years of Allsvenskan experience at this point. Beloved by the team’s fans and respected internationally as a centre-back, the 27-year-old is noted for his versatility. For instance, he has been known to score despite playing as a full-back and boasts a respectable rate of assists as well.

Allsvenskan Rising Stars

This section is dedicated to some of the younger players currently playing in Sweden’s top-flight league.

Bénie Traoré

Traoré is a very young winger from the Ivory Coast who was recently signed by Hacken as a promising young talent. If one were to find betting odds for Rising Star awards in Swedish football, this 19-year-old would easily be the favourite. Though the fee Hacken paid for him was undisclosed, educated estimates place it at over €1.2 million – an exceptional price for such a young player with no experience in professional European football. Traoré is fast, energetic, and analysts are expecting a very bright future.

Edward Chilufya

This young Zambian international was first brought into the Djurgarden squad in 2018, which led him to become Swedish champion and Cup Winner only a year later at the age of 19. He has since established himself as a key part of the team’s starting 11 as the left-winger. Comfortable in the midfield as well as the wings, Chilufya has reportedly already caught the eye of teams like Inter Milan and Lyon.

Allsvenskan Derby Matches

Tvillingderbyt

The name translates to “the Twin Derby”, and is meant to represent the fact that the two rival teams which participate in it - AIK and Djurgårdens IF - were both founded in Stockholm in 1891, just three weeks apart. In addition, it is the showdown between Stockholm’s biggest teams, and thus attracts huge crowds.

Allsvenskan Best Stadiums

Friends Arena

Also known as Nationalarenan, this is a multi-purpose stadium with a retractable roof and a capacity of over 54.000. Located in Stockholm, it is AIK’s home ground and the biggest stadium in all of Scandinavia.

Tele2 Arena

The home turf for both Djurgårdens and Hammarby, this arena got its name due to a sponsorship deal with one of Sweden’s biggest telecommunications companies. The Tele2 arena boasts a capacity of 30,000, a retractable roof, and can host a variety of events other than football.
