Strandvallen from Solvesborg will host today starting with the hours of 20:00 the dispute between the local team, Mjallby and Kalmar as part of the 13th stage of the Swedish first soccer league.
Mjallby gathered 19 points, playing only 11 matches. In the case of a success tonight, she would surpass IFK Goteborg, the team placed on the last step of the podium. Mjallby comes after a good match in the first day of this month, 5-1 at home against Halmstad. This was the sixth consecutive match played by Haynes and the team in which they mark more than two goals. In the matches played away, Mjallby won four games out of six, being defeated by Norrkoping in the first inner game of the season. In the last four matches, she marked every time a minimum of two goals, but she also received at least one.
The hosts of this match have a game based on offensive, putting strain on the adversary. With seven goals, Kristian Haynes is in the top of the players with most goals scored of the season. Furthermore, it looks like Ekenberg made a comeback after a rather unlucky beginning of this season.
Kalmar has not succeeded in winning the last two rounds and made it to the seventh place with 17 points. Unlike her tonight`s adversary, she played all the 12 matches. On Monday, Kalmar played on her own pitch against Norrkoping. Despite the fact that until the break she was leading, she found herself needing to try harder only to save a point in the last 27 minutes. About the games played away, the balance sheet of Kalmar from the beginning of the month is not a good one at all, with a single point gained from two possible and just one goal scored.
Kalmar plays by the system 4-2-3-1, their most goals being scored this season by the young quarterback Mans Soderqvist with four victories. Alongside with him in the middle offensive triangle are the two Brazilians brought at the beginning of the season, Ismale si Romarinho. For the tonight`s game, from the guest team will continue to absentee Skjelvik, Israelsson si Eriksson, but Azinovic will return, the goalkeeper missing the start of the season after an injury suffered in the competition`s break.
In the last championship, Mjallby took all the points from the two legged matches played against Kalmar. From 2010 until now, the two teams have met six times. Firstly, there were two rematches recorded, after which Mjallby obtained a victory in each and every one of the four played. Will Kalmar defeat Mjallby for the first time in 12 years in an official game? We think not, but we will see tonight.

Initially we were thinking to bet on the hosts due to their recorded outcomes in the matches played at home. But we consider that the tip “both teams score” has higher chances of success. Mjallby is a team based on offense and in front of such a team, Kalmar showed on Monday that she does not know how to defend herself and will be forced to leave the game.
