Halmstad are amongst a set of results that have yielded only a handful of points, as victories have eluded Magnus Hagland's men. However, the team has to remain positive as long as they are defensively solid and hard to break down. This has been the policy that has yielded Halmstad some good results against the top teams and now they are within touching distance of the top half. Varberg are very disappointing on the road and the lack of away supporters should be a concern.
Total goals less than 2.5
Even though Varberg have scored goals in the last nine league encounters, they will struggle against a defensively solid Halmstad outfit. Just one of the last three competitive meetings between these two rivals have been high scoring.
Halmstad to keep a clean sheet
Halmstad have been a solid outfit so far this season and they have been very hard to break down. Even a number of top teams have been unable to get anything out of Halmstad in recent matches. Varberg have been particularly disappointing even if they have been able to score in nine consecutive matches. Halmstad might just be the team to put an end to this run.

Halmstad vs Varberg: Latest News and Match Preview
There are enough reasons for Magnus Hagland to be positive about his team’s fortunes for the 2021 Swedish Allsvenskan campaign. The formation set up by the manager has been very difficult to break down even if it has meant some compromise is going forward. Phil Ofosu-Ayeh, is a long-term injury victim, is the only absentee for the home team.
Varberg have been astonishingly poor at the back and they have allowed a whopping 20 goals in the opening 10 matches. Such a poor defence has been the biggest let down for the team even as they have scored an average of more than a goal per game. Robin Simovic and Albin Winbo are unavailable for the game.
