Rival meeting is waiting in the more northern parts of our elongated country and, as many times before, we have high expectations for this match. With the prevailing conditions, there should be a very intense match around the corner here.
After an almost horrific start of the season, we think we have seen a Luleå that suddenly looks considerably hotter. It is well placed in a few different things, but the offensive is significantly heavier now and it also feels that the player group is behind the whole idea. From the end of November onwards, the team has won six wins in the last nine, which is a significantly better score than before. What stands out are some heavy wins, 3-5 away against Växjö Lakers and 1-2 away against the top team Djurgårdens IF. Very strong performance.
To take the rival meeting against Skellefteå with the energy now appearing in the squad is of course a big advantage and we think that will affect the guests to actually win for the victory here. We expect an offensive balanced removal.
Games in the target market
Nor can Skellefteå be counted now. The shape is relatively good and it feels like the team – which, in itself, blends very high with low – has the ability to beat any team in the series. That in itself is a strength and makes this meeting interesting.
At home we count on ice cold that Skellefteå wants to put the tone on the match. Last teams played against each other, even when in Skellefteå, the match ended with fantastic 7-4. We really do not expect so many goals this time, but a game in the target market is clearly the most interesting one.
