IK Sirius vs Hammarby IF Betting Tips: Form Guide

For IK Sirius, Relegation Looks Ever Closer

So where did it all go wrong for Sirius? They finally made it to Allsvenskan after gaining promotion in 2016 in a historic night for the club: it marked the first time Sirius would be in the top tier league of Swedish football in 42 years. And when they got there, they performed much better than many expected.

Today, they stare down the barrel of relegation. They appear to have lost their killer instinct, lacking the spark of their return. During the first half of the year particularly, no matter how hard they huffed and they puffed, they couldn’t put their opponents down, going on some quite spectacular losing streaks.

Things seemed to turn a bit of a corner in mid-July, when they managed to actually get back-to-back wins over four teams. However, this happy run ended with a 3-2 loss to Dalkurd.  They come into this match following not only two subsequent losses, but two absolute disasters – falling to Malmo FF 5-0 and Sundsvall 4-0. While we suppose this is an improvement compared to going months without winning, it hasn’t been enough to change the tone of many IK Sirius vs Hammarby IF match previews, as many think yet another bad run of losses awaits.

Hammarby IF Improve Upon Last Season With An Excellent Set Of Results

Almost as astonishing as IK Sirius collapsing down the ranks is Hammarby emerging as contenders once more. The last time they won the Allsvenskan title was back in 2001 and they haven’t even sniffed the runners-up spot since 2003. While they’ve still got the mountain to climb, victory is – for the first time in a very long time – not completely out of the realms of possibility.

They’ve achieved this through consistent improvement. They went into 2018 on shaky ground, with seesaw results and performances. So, when they kicked off the season with an astonishing streak of wins – they’d have been close to hitting double digits were it not for a 2-2 draw to Hacken along the way – people were surprised. And since then, they’ve continued to impress as the season runs towards its twilight period.

Sure, they come into this match off the back of a 3-1 loss to Djurgarden, but there’s a reason that IK Sirius vs Hammarby IF betting tips for today still have them as firm favourites. This is a team that has worked hard to utilise their strengths, and the occasional loss doesn’t change that. It’s been a brilliant season so far, and one which looks to continue that way.

IK Sirius vs Hammarby IF Preview: Recent Meetings

While based on the odds, it clearly hasn’t had too much effect on IK Sirius vs Hammarby IF betting tips, there is one clear reason to think that the underdogs may have a decent chance here and that’s the results of their last meeting. In June of this year, Sirius beat Hammarby 2-1, and although this was merely a friendly, it should still fill them with confidence that this is far from a done deal.

However, they don’t take the advantage overall in head-to-head battles, as Hammarby beat Sirius 3-1 in April, pretty much evening things out. When you consider their last two meetings in 2017 both went to draws, and there’s a three-year gap before that and previous meetings, we’d say that this is pretty much a tie. That’s probably much more than people might expect from Sirius though, considering their current position.

IK Sirius vs Hammarby IF Prediction: Hammarby Continue Ascent

While a single recent head-to-head win wouldn’t usually seem so significant, the fact that Sirius hold a victory in the middle of their struggles against such a tough side shows that, although they might be down, they are far from out. It might just be a friendly win but considering the disaster their season has been, it is more important than it would be under normal circumstances. And let’s not forget that Sirius did place better than Hammarby last season, however long ago that might feel now.

However, being possible doesn’t mean it is probable and when we look at their recent victories, the results simply speak for themselves. Sirius can’t match Hammarby in terms of the consistent quality they’ve delivered and because of that, our IK Sirius vs Hammarby IF prediction has to be that Hammarby win to continue their quest to that top league spot.
