IFK Varnamo vs Djurgarden Predictions

A Battle of Defense and Momentum

Key Stats
– Djurgardens IF are on a six-game unbeaten run in the Allsvenskan league.
– IFK Varnamo have managed to keep four clean sheets this season.
– Djurgardens have not yet secured a win away from home this season.

As we gear up for another round of thrilling Swedish Allsvenskan matches, IFK Varnamo prepares to host Djurgardens IF at the Finnvedsvallen this Saturday. The home team is seeking to clinch their third home victory of the season, hoping to build on the momentum gained from their recent 2-0 triumph against Degerfors.

After their triumphant second-tier title campaign the previous season, Varnamo settled for a respectable 10th position in the Allsvenskan last season. Under the strategic leadership of Kim Hellberg, the team has performed decently this season, currently perched at the 11th spot with 15 points garnered from 13 games. Their recent victory over Degerfors was their fifth win this season, boasting a record of four clean sheets.

A Defensive Fortress

Varnamo’s strength in the league lies in their defence, having conceded a modest 16 goals in the 13 games they’ve played so far. Their resilience in defence and stringent backline have often made them a hard team to penetrate. Leading the line for Varnamo, Gustav Engvall will look to add to his four league goals this season. The defensive partnership of Victor Eriksson and Emin Grozdanic, having started the last five matches together, is also expected to feature prominently in the upcoming clash.

Djurgardens IF’s Unbeaten Streak

The visiting team, Djurgardens IF, led by Kim Bergstrand, approach this match with an impressive unbeaten run in their last six league games. Despite an initial sluggish start with just three wins in their opening eight matches, Djurgardens turned their fortunes around, steadily climbing to the fifth position in the Allsvenskan. Their last victory, a decisive 2-0 win against Varbergs BoIS, was courtesy of successful strikes from Jesper Lofgren and Oliver Berg.

Struggles on the Road

Despite their recent good form, Djurgardens have yet to savour victory on the road this season, with their away record reflecting two draws and four defeats from six matches. Bergstrand will surely be eyeing this match as an opportunity to break the dismal away run.

A Competitive Showdown: Team News and Form

This upcoming match will feature a variety of exciting individual match-ups. For Varnamo, Jonathan Rasheed might return to the starting lineup, while for Djurgardens, Oliver Berg, having scored in his last outing, is expected to lead the line on Saturday, alongside Joel Asoro and Haris Radetinac.

However, Djurgardens will miss the services of veteran defender Elliot Kack due to a knee injury. Despite this setback, the team’s recent form suggests they could still pose a significant threat to Varnamo.

Match Predictions: Value in the Corners market

Turning our attention to the match predictions, a critical aspect to consider is the trend in the number of corners. Both Varnamo and Djurgardens have displayed high-intensity games, which often lead to several corners. 

Varnamo have shown a proclivity for attacking football, as evidenced by their impressive 7.0 corners per game and a total shot rate of 12.4 per game. In addition, Varnamo’s 53.5% ball possession indicates a tendency to control the game’s tempo, often pushing upfield and creating opportunities that result in corners.

Their successful dribble rate of 12.8 per game also suggests an aggressive, penetrating style of play that often culminates in corners. However, their tendency to lose possession (142.2 times per game) can lead to quick counterattacks from their opponents, potentially causing more corners.

In contrast, Djurgardens IF’s corner statistics reveal a slightly different story. They average fewer corners per game at 6.1. However, with a higher total shot rate of 14.5 per game, a similar ball possession rate of 53.4%, and successful dribbles per game at 9.1, Djurgardens also demonstrate a significant attacking threat. Their increased long-ball accuracy (53.3%) indicates a propensity to switch play and make longer, more direct attacks, which can also lead to corners.

Additionally, Djurgardens have an increased big chance rate per game at 2.0, meaning they are frequently in positions that could lead to corners. Similar to Varnamo, Djurgardens lose possession approximately 139.7 times per game, hinting at the possibility of counterattacks resulting in corners.

The duel statistics for both teams (Varnamo: 48.9%, Djurgardens IF: 49.3%) indicate a relatively balanced fight for possession, which could lead to more interruptions and thus corner situations.

Looking at these figures, both teams have a strong tendency to engage in attacking plays, which invariably lead to corner kicks. Given Varnamo’s average of 7.0 corners per game and Djurgardens IF’s average of 6.1 corners per game, the probability of the match surpassing our initial prediction of over 12.5 corners is indeed high. It is plausible to expect a high-intensity game with numerous corners from both sides as they battle for supremacy.

Additionally, with Varnamo’s solid defensive record and Djurgardens’ unbeaten run, a 2-0 victory in favour of Djurgardens seems plausible. Djurgardens’ goal-scoring prowess, paired with Varnamo’s occasional lapses in defence, should provide Djurgardens with enough opportunities to secure a comfortable win.
