With the Superettan season well underway, we already know which sides are vying for the league title as well as attempting to avoid the drop. And two sides who will be fighting for promotion to the Allsvenskan face off before the international break as Helsingborgs make the trip to Trelleborgs, both teams can break into the promotion places. The hosts are fourth in the table with 35 points while the visitors sit one place and point below them with 34 points. They both have a game in hand over the three teams above them.
The visitors have dominated this fixture in recent years as they have only lost once against Trelleborgs in the 21st century. They have only faced off on one occasion in the Superettan and that was the fixture earlier in the campaign. Helsingborgs won the match 1-0 with a second-half winner.

If they want the best chance of promotion to the Allsvenskan, it is vital that Trelleborgs take all three points in this one as a game-in-hand win will take them into the top three. They have Freddie Brorsson and their star striker, Camara-Jönsson missing for the game with injuries. They might find it hard without their main source of goals.

It is just as vital for Helsingborgs to win this game and overtake their opponents in the table. However, it won’t be easy at all and against the home support of the hosts, it will be even harder. They don’t have injuries to worry about which will help them in this one. Latest matches: Helsingborgs IF

It’s very hard to pick a winner for this one with both sides being placed within touching distance of each other. The home support gives Trelleborgs the very slight advantage but the absence of Camara-Jönsson will hurt them. It has all the makings of a draw but a win either win shouldn’t be ruled out at all.
