Varberg vs Norrby IF Predictions

Varberg sit top of the Superettan table by four points and a game in hand over Mjallby, while their opponents this weekend, Norrby, sit nine points behind the league leaders in third spot. Both sides head into Saturday’s game amid unbeaten runs, with Varberg yet to lose so far this season and Norrby avoiding defeat in their last seven matches.

Varberg took the lead at home to GAIS last time out through Modig in the forty-third minute, despite being reduced to ten men in the eighteenth minute after defender Lindner was shown a straight red card. The match appeared to swing in the visitors’ favour in the second half when Kabashi’s equaliser was followed up by a second red card for Varberg, this time substitute and goalscorer Modig was handed his marching orders with twenty minutes left on the clock. However, ten minutes from time the hosts were awarded a penalty which Girmai converted to win the game for the nine men of Varberg. Norrby and Dalkurd played out a bore draw in front of 682 fans at the Borås Arena, a game that won’t live long in the memory and will have been celebrated more by the visiting fans than the home faithful.

The head to head record between these two clubs and their performances in the Superettan over the last few weeks and on the whole this season, all point towards under 2.5 goals being scored on Saturday and Varberg claiming all three points. Four of the pairs seven encounters over the years have produced under 2.5 goals, and Varberg have won three of the last five meetings between the two clubs. Varberg have won four of their last six matches and remain unbeaten in the Superettan this season, while Norrby have failed to score in three of their last five matches. Under 2.5 goals have been scored in four of Varberg’s last five and four of Norrby’s last six matches, which is why we’re backing a narrow 1-0 win for Varberg on Saturday.

Seljmani needs just one more goal to hit double figures in the league for Varberg this season, while Yarsuvat leads the way for Norrby with four Superettan goals. We’re confident that under 2.5 goals will be produced when these two in-form sides meet and have predicted a 1-0 win for the hosts Varberg. The hosts are yet to lose a league game this season and have a very good recent record against their guests, but Norrby don’t concede many goals, which is why we have gone with a narrow 1-0 win for Varberg this weekend.
