Varnamo vs Mjallby prediction
Mjallby players in protest

Varnamo play host to Mjallby in the Allsvenskan this weekend and we're bringing you our predictions for the game.

The visitors sit six points and seven places above their hosts and head into the match as the bookmaker's pick to secure all three points. However, Varnamo did beat Mjallby 3-2 when the pair last locked horns so Sunday's clash is likely to be close and competitive throughout.

Player to watch – Jacob Bergstrom

Mjallby's target man stands at 195cm and causes defences throughout the Allsvenskan problems from set-pieces and crosses into the box.

The 29-year-old has started eight league games this season, scoring four goals and we're backing the tall centre forward to score against Varnamo on Sunday.

Bergstrom has a goal record of one in two this season

Bergstrom is in good form right now with three goals in his last five appearances in the Allsvenskan and Varnamo have lost two of their last three home games, seemingly playing better on the road in recent weeks which is something Mjallby will be looking to take advantage of.
