A new hockey all-venue meeting awaits Wednesday when Almtuna IS receives a visit to Serial leader Timrå IK, who has written a good lead in the top.
Timrå IK lacks a bunch of players due to landslide missions and injuries, which will force some changes in the starting lineup. It’s also what makes us look away from the idea of playing on the guests, which otherwise felt like a natural game.
On the other hand, Timrå IK still feels like the stronger team, not least given the width of the team and the fact that the results have recently been very good. Defensively, the team is very strong, with 20 inline goals of 15 matches. Looking at the team’s last five games – all victories – they have released a total of four goals. It testifies to a very stable backwardness.
Almtuna IS feels outdated
Certainly, given the fact that Timrå IK has some breaks before the match, it could clearly have been a worse time to meet the team. On the other hand, the shape of the home team is anything but promising. The 2-1 win away against AIK last brings some wind to their sails, but overall, Almtuna IS feels like an outdated team at the moment.
Looking at the team’s latest games has the four losses and a profit. A total of four goals ahead is a clear proof of the impotence we talked about. Now the team also meets the best organized defensive resistance in the series. It will be tough.
Our Prediction: Almtuna IS win @ 1.89
