Malkolm Nilsson Säfqvist 5.3m
Malkolm Nilsson Säfqvist continues to deliver points, even when the clean sheets are absent. With 14 save points and 30 defensive bonus points on the season, Säfqvist has a lot to offer. At home to an Örebro side who have lost 8 of their 10 last games, and who will be missing key players through suspension, Halmstad should claim the 3 points and likely keep it tight.
Elohor Godswill Ekpolo 7.1m
Back from suspension, Elohor Godswill Ekpolo now travel to Östersund who, despite going 3-1 up after just 19 minutes away to Hammarby, wound up crumbling and losing the game 4-3. The hope is dwindling by the minute, and they are dangerously close to a status of mathematically confirmed to be relegated. Weymans and Mensiro are suspended and Ekpolo’s Häcken could have a field day – even without Alexander Jeremejeff who is missing from the squad due to illness.
Johan Larsson 8.1m
Johan Larsson is not letting Elfsborg’s title dreams peter out just yet, and 1 goal, 3 clean sheets, 5 offensive and 2 defensive bonus points in his 3 last games says it all. Expect a pretty open game away to Degerfors who, despite winning their 2 last games, are no where near out of the woods just yet. Another attacking return or two for Johan Larsson?
Mohanad Jeahze 6.4m
Despite the frail defensive showing from Hammarby, Mohanad Jeahze contributed a lot going forward but failed to register attacking returns against Östersund. He got 2 offensive bonus and showed a lot of promise, and away to Sirius we could easily see some actual returns materialise from it.
Gustav Ludwigson 9.5m
Gustav Ludwigson registered an xG of 1.04, along with an xA of 0.82 against Östersund. With a goal, an assist, and 3 offensive bonus points in his 2 last appearances, it looks like Ludwigson might be coming into form just as the fixtures start to look great for Hammarby.
Akinkunmi Amoo 7.3m
The star of the show on Sunday, however, was Akinkunmi Amoo, who scored the decisive goal for the second week in a row and registered 13 points from the game. 4 goals, 2 assists, 4 offensive and 3 defensive bonus points in his 6 last appearances (2 of which lasted for just 45 minutes), Amoo is the rising star of Hammarby and with Selmani out injured, he and Ludwigson should start up top.
Patrik Wålemark 7.3m
Patrik Wålemark is quickly becoming part of the “template”, doubling his ownership after scoring 2 goals, 3 assists, 4 offensive and 1 defensive bonus point in his 3 last games. Away to Östersund, there might even be quite a few managers tempted to hand him the captain’s armband.
Anders Christiansen 12.2m
Malmö’s captain Anders Christiansen is mostly held back by his price, as he would probably be in a lot more teams without the steep price tag. 6 goals, 9 assists, 20 offensive and 10 defensive bonus points is a good tally so far, especially as he’s missed 5 whole games through injuries and suspensions, and also had his minutes severely restricted halfway through the season when juggling European commitments.
Oliver Berg 7.4m
Oliver Berg comes with a decisively more budget friendly price tag than Christiansen, and his numbers are very impressive, averaging 5.66 points per game. At home to Varberg, Berg should have a good opportunity to build upon what has been an amazing season so far for him and Kalmar.
Sadat Karim 5.4m
Sadat Karim is in exceptional form for Halmstad, scoring 3 goals and 2 assists in his 4 last games. Örebro comes to Halmstad deflated, out of form and just like Östersund, close to being relegated. In some instances, teams can turn into a cornered beast with their backs up against the wall, but in Örebro’s case, it looks more like they’ve ran out of gas in the middle of nowhere, and are too tired to go pick up some new overpriced petrol at the station.
Victor Edvardsen 7.0m
Victor Edvardsen loves playing in front of the fans, having scored 10 goals and 2 assists in 10 games at home. Goals look likely for both sides as Elfsborg comes to town with an ambition for the top spots which means nothing less than 3 points is acceptable – while Degerfors are fighting for survival.
Every week in the Scout Picks, a captain is selected from the 11 chosen players. The Captain Pick is meant to give some guidance into who has the biggest potential for points this Gameweek and who looks relatively safe, according to the Scout.
This Gameweek the Captain Pick is Akinkunmi Amoo. Once bitten, twice shy does not apply here as last week’s captain from Hammarby went off injured before half time… With Hammarby recording a total xG of 5.57 from 32 shots against Östersund, Hammarby have the attacking power to overwhelm Sirius this Gameweek.
