Norrköping and Kalmar play today from 7 pm CET match of the 14th round of the 1st Swedish league. It's a duel of neighbors on the table, the sixth and eighth teams in the league, which share a three-point difference, so an uncertain course of events on the field is expected.

Norrköping, after two defeats, defeated Göteborg 2:1 in the last round, scoring two goals in the first half. It was important for the team of coach Rikard Norling, which has already beaten the current champions Malmö and AIK Stockholm this season. The hosts hope that they could be better than Kalmar today, although they are aware that the guests are a compact and combative team, which doesn't easily concede goals and which has remained undefeated four times in six away games.

- Kalmar is a team that can cause problems for every club in the league, they have a great coach and we know that this will be a difficult task for us, but we want three points - said home coach Norling, who has no problems with the absence of important players.

After a good start Kalmar was in crisis and had three defeats in a row, but in the last round defeated Mjällby 1:0 and returned to the path of success. Coach Rydström used a 5-4-1 formation to be more defensive, and it's important that defender Henrik Löfkvist returned to the squad after his injury.

- We think that we entered in match against Mjällby from beginning with exactly the attitude and intensity that we want to characterize. After our leading goal in the second half, I think we are stable. We may be a little too cautious in our play to continue threatening Mjällby with same extent, but at the same time we aren't giving them much for play and created chances. A good week is behind us, where players had a very good job in training and we expect a positive result - said assistent of guest coach Stefan Larsson.

This could be an even match in which the hosts will attack more, and Kalmar will patiently defend and wait for the transition and counter-attacks. Norrköping is too dependent on their striker Adegbenro, who has scored seven goals and if he is braked, that is a big deal for Kalmar. These are teams that don't have the best attacking potential and individuals, and should remain below three goals in total...

HALF LOST Score: 1:2 Profit: -0.5
