Hammarby take on the visitors Brommapojkarna in the round 12 match of Swedish Allsvenskan. The match will be played on Friday, June 9th at Tele2 Arena (Stockholm).
Hammarby started the new century triumphantly, winning their long-awaited first-ever championship title in 2001. However, after the "golden" year, there was a decline, including a period from 2010 to 2014 when they had to play in the Superettan, the country's second division. Only recently have they managed to improve their performance. In 2021, they won the cup, marking their first trophy of that kind. In the previous season, Hammarby finished in the top three in Allsvenskan, just like in 2019. They began this season with a victory over "Degerfors" at home but then suffered four defeats in the next five matches. It was only in May that they started to accumulate points more consistently, although mostly through draws. They managed a 0-0 draw against "Halmstad" in an away match.

Brommapojkarna celebrated its 80th anniversary last year. During this time, they experienced a consecutive rise, earning promotion from Superettan to the top league in just one year after moving up from the third division of Swedish football. However, this rollercoaster pattern is not new for them. The same situation occurred in 2016-2017. But back then, after a year in the elite league, they experienced a setback, getting relegated twice in a row. This time, however, it seems that the threat of relegation is gradually diminishing. They had a dreadful start with three consecutive defeats. However, at the end of April, everything changed dramatically, and in the following six matches, they only dropped points to "Gothenburg," against whom they finished with a goalless draw at home. They won all the other matches, rising to the top group. In their last spring match against "Sirius," after taking an early lead at home, "Brommapojkarna" reluctantly conceded a defeat. Nevertheless, they managed a confident 2-0 victory against "Norrkoping" afterward.
"Hammarby" has won all three recent head-to-head matches, both encounters in Allsvenskan 2018 and the cup match two years later against "Brommapojkarna." The home team is considered the clear favorite. However, Hammarby hasn't been performing at their full potential for a long time, unlike the guests, who have been relatively successful recently. A safe betting option would be a "+1 handicap" for "Brommapojkarna."
Prediction for the match: Brommapojkarna to win with +1.0 handicap.
