Halmstad take on the visitors AFC Eskilstuna at “Orjans Vall” in the gameweek 13 of the Swedish Superettan. The match will be played in Halmstad on Sunday, June 17th.
After a year break Halmstad returned to the Superettan. The team’s first trip to the second division has been lasting just one season. At the start of the season, it looks like it won’t be an easy task the side to repeat that success as after 2:1 triumph over Degerfors in the opening clash, the forthcoming hosts have managed to pick up just one point in three following encounters, having collected 0:2 defeat from Orgryte, 1:1 draw against Falkenbergs and 0:2 loss to Norrby in face of their supporters. However, afterwards Halmstad began to earn points regularly and came close to the contenders for a direct pass to the Allsvenskan. At the moment the club has 21 points gained, being three points behind Helsingborg which is sitting now on the third place in the standings. And that position allows the side to fight for the pass to the elite division through the Play Offs.

AFC Eskilstuna failed last season in the Allsvenskan, having fully deserved the last place in the table. Still, the team is tending to return to the elite division as soon as possible. At the moment the club occupies the second position in the Superettan table which brings a direct pass to the Allsvenskan. However, the upcoming visitors are only one point above the closest chaser which means that AFC Eskilstuna must succeed in the Sunday game to keep their place. The team won seven out of 12 encounters conducted, having failed only once in them against Falkenbergs. The side has lost not a single battle at the home ground so far, having earned two victories and three draws in face of its supporters. It is also worth mentioning that AFC Eskilstuna gained nine clean sheets. Thus, the rock-solid defense is the key factor of the team’s high position. The side demonstrates astonishing performance in attack, having scored 21 goals just like its defense which has conceded just five goals so far.
During last two years AFC Eskilstuna dominated in their head-to-heads against Halmstad, having got two triumphs and draws in them. Despite the hosts’ high place, Halmstad struggle against not the strongest rivals even at the home ground which in combination with their tiredness after a tight fight against the direct rival turn AFC Eskilstuna into the obvious favourites of the forthcoming tackle.
Prediction for the match: AFC Eskilstuna to win.
