The two bottom teams in the Allsvenskan go head-to-head on Sunday and we're bringing you our predictions for this basement battle between Kalmar and Vasteras.

There isn't much between these two struggling clubs and we're predicting a tight and tense 90 minutes at the Guldfågeln Arena.

There is plenty on the line for both of these teams this weekend as a win could see either club get their season back on track.

Visiting Vasteras sit rock bottom of the Allsvenskan table with just five points from their opening 11 league games, while hosts Kalmar sit just one place above their guests despite having twice the amount of points on the board.

Will the home advantage make all of the difference this weekend? Read on to find our prediction for Kalmar vs Vasteras.

Last five H2Hs: Kalmar dominate

Sunday's hosts Kalmar have won four of their last five league games against Vasteras with the other encounter ending in a draw.

However, these two teams haven't faced one another since 2003 when they were both plying their trade in the second tier of Swedish football.

Kalmar preview: Hoping to move out of the drop zone

Hosts Kalmar could move out of the relegation zone if they manage to avoid defeat on Sunday but if they secure all three points then they might even move as high as 12th in the table.

Predicted lineup: Kindberg (GK), Sætra, Sjöstedt, Gersbach, Jansson, Romário, Gojani, Hallberg, Ring, Islamović & Trenskow

Vasteras preview: Without a win in last six

Even a win for the visitors won't be enough to move them out of last place but it would see Vasteras reduce the gap between themselves and Kalmar to just two points.

Player to watch – Jacob Trenskow

Kalmar's Danish forward has been their best player so far this season, topping the club's scoring and assists chart.

The 23-year-old has four goals and four assists in 11 Allsvenskan starts this season which is a marked improvement on his previous campaign with the club where he failed to score in any of his 16 appearances.

Kalmar's top scorer and assist provider this season

We're backing the former HB Koge striker to put in the kind of performance that will secure Kalmar a big three points this weekend, possibly taking Sunday's hosts out of the relegation zone and getting their season back on track.
