IFK Goteborg - Mjallby Betting Preview: Back the hosts to secure all three points

With top spot in the Allsvenskan up for grabs, our tipster, Hugh Wilson, is backing a comfortable win for the home side on Monday evening and has a 13/2 value bet
Two points separate Helsingborg at the top of the table and IFK Goteborg, who sit in second position. The two giants of Swedish football have been there throughout the season but Goteborg will be looking to jump above them this evening with Helsingborg not playing again until later in the week. Mjallby, who sit in seventh position in the league, stand in their way.

Goteborg come into this match unbeaten at home in the league this season. Mikael Stahre's men are looking to better their disappointing season last term, where they finished seventh, and have started this campaign well.

The Blavitt have tasted defeat only once in their last seven games and, unsurprisingly, are favourites, with Bet365 pricing them at 8/13 (1.62) to take all three points.

Mjallby are on an inconsistent run at the moment, losing two, winning two and drawing one of their last five. Anders Torstensson will hope that his side can maintain this midtable position, after finishing towards the bottom of the table last season. Bet365 price them at a long 9/2 (5.50) to take the win, with the same firm having the draw at 14/5 (3.80).

A bet that stands out in this match and is a fantastic price is Goteborg to win to nil at 8/5 (2.60). With the hosts price to win the match a little short at 8/13 (1.62), backing them to do it to nil is worth investing in. Goteborg have won four of their six home matches this season, with all four being to nil.

When you consider that Mjallby have lost their last three away games, with two of them to nil, this is a bet not to be ignored.

For those looking for more value, backing the correct score to be 2-0 at 13/2 (7.50) with Bet365 is worth a small investment. In Goteborg's four home wins this season, three of them have been by this scoreline.
