Player to watch – Deniz Hummet

Djurgarden's Turkish striker Deniz Hummet has made an impressive start to the 2024 Allsvenskan campaign and he is our player to watch on Monday night.

The 27-year-old, who has played for a number of Swedish clubs during his career, has scored five times in nine appearances for Djurgarden this season and is on course to top his best-ever league goals tally in a single season of 12 which he achieved with Gefle back in 2017.

Djurgarden's Turkish striker is in good form

We're expecting a big performance from the host's main man and have backed the Turk to score against Halmstad and lead Djurgarden to yet another victory.
