Hammarby form and stats

This is not the first game this season in the Europa League for Hammarby, as the manager S. Billborn led his troops to eliminate Puskas, and reach the 2nd Qualifying Round.

3 victories, 6 draws and 1 defeat. That’s what Hammarby have to build on here at Tele2 Arena in the Allsvenskan. So many draws at home for Hammarby, an amazing four in a row now.

A draw after 90 minutes last time out for Hammarby, who played 2-2 against Helsingborg. That match was also played at this venue (Tele2 Arena). A strong away win before that one, visiting IFK Göteborg and winning 4-0.

This is expected to be a close game, with Hammarby perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with Hammarby as a small favourite), we find four games. Hammarby has won three of these, drawn zero and lost one.

Hammarby are traveling soon after this match as the Allsvenskan match at AIK awaits in four days.

The Hammarby fans have had their share of opportunities to cheer home goals this season, having seen 15 goals in 10 league matches. On the other hand, Hammarby have conceded 11 goals.

The UEFA Europa League, abbreviated as UEL and commonly referred to as just the Europa League, is an annual football club competition organised by UEFA. It is the second-tier competition for football clubs in Europa, beneath the UEFA Champions League in value and importance. Teams qualify through their performance in their national leagues and cup competitions. Some teams qualify from the Champions League; more precisely the teams who are knocked out in the playoff qualifying round and the third-place finishers of the group stage. The winner of the Europa League qualifies for the Champions League in their next competitive season.
