thumbnail Hello,

Roar Hansen’s men will be looking to make up for lost time on Monday evening and Al Hain-Cole expects their formidable attack to earn them a comfortable win

Helsingborg play host to Oster on Monday, hoping to gain some ground on league leaders Malmo at the top of the Allsvenskan.

Roar Hansen’s men currently sit four points off the top with two games in hand, and are 1/3 (1.33) favourites with William Hill to make up for lost time with victory at the Olympiastadion.

Meanwhile, only goal difference separates the visitors from the relegation zone, and they are available at 8/1 (9.00) to give themselves some breathing space with just their second away win of the season.

The pair shared a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture back in April and you can get odds of 4/1 (5.00) on them cancelling each other out once again.

Di Roe enjoyed a six-game winning streak while their guests lost six consecutive matches earlier in the season, but have now only won one of their last five - a feat matched by Andreas Thomsson’s side.

This poor form is understandable considering a tricky run of fixtures, but they will be determined to get back to winning ways when the newly-promoted opponents come to town.

Despite playing two fewer games than most sides in the division, Hansen’s men are joint top scorers, and will be supremely confident of outgunning a team with just 13 goals in 15 matches.

Considering this difference in firepower, a convincing victory looks more than likely for the hosts, who offer decent value at 17/20 (1.85) to win with a one-goal handicap.

That bet looks particularly safe as the visitors have managed just two goals in their last six away fixtures, while the home side have hit 17 in front of their own fans in that time.

However, the fans may have to maintain some patience if their side fail to get the ball rolling straight away, as they have only scored inside the opening half an hour once in their last five matches.

With this in mind, odds of 17/10 (2.70) are well worth backing on Helsingborg to open the scoring after the 30 minute mark.
