IFK Goteborg will host Mjallby AIF in a crucial Swedish Allsvenskan clash at Gamla Ullevi on Tuesday evening.

The game promises to be an intriguing contest as both teams aim to improve their standings in the league.

Current Form

IFK Goteborg

The home side is struggling this season, sitting 14th in the table with just eight points from nine matches.

Jens Berthel Askou’s men have only secured two wins, two draws, and suffered five defeats.

Their recent form has been disappointing, with a 2-2 draw against Sirius following back-to-back losses to GAIS and Malmo.

Notably, Goteborg has the worst home record in the league, having picked up only one point from four home games.

Mjallby AIF

In contrast, Mjallby is performing well, currently positioned third in the table with 17 points from nine games.

Anders Torstensson’s team is on a four-game unbeaten streak, which includes impressive victories over Hammarby, Kalmar, and Halmstad.

They are seven points behind leaders Malmo and just two points from second-placed Djurgardens IF.

Mjallby has been solid away from home, recording two wins and two draws from their four away fixtures.

Team News

IFK Goteborg

The home team faces significant injury concerns with several key players sidelined, including Laurs Skjellerup, Arbnor Mucolli, Anders Trondsen, and Pontus Dahlberg among others.

Paulos Abraham, the team’s top scorer with four goals, will lead the attack alongside Thomas Santos and Oscar Pettersson.

Mjallby AIF

Mjallby’s squad is in better shape, with Tom Pettersson being the only notable absentee.

Torstensson is expected to deploy a 3-5-2 formation with Jacob Bergstrom, who has scored four goals this season, and Imam Jagne spearheading the attack.

Predicted Lineups

IFK Goteborg: Bishesari; Santos, Svensson, Carlen, Johansson; Yalcouye, Pyndt, Thordarson; Pettersson, Carlstrand, Abraham

Mjallby AIF: Tornqvist; Brorsson, Rosler, Stahl; Johansson, Gustafson, Gustavsson, Rojkjaer, Stroud; Jagne, Bergstrom

Prediction

The historical head-to-head suggests a closely fought encounter. While Mjallby has only won once in their last eight league matches against Goteborg, the latter’s poor form and injury issues might tilt the balance.

A draw seems a likely outcome, with a potential scoreline of 1-1, as Mjallby’s strong form might be countered by Goteborg’s determination to turn their season around.
