Sitting 14th in the league table with relegation worries palpable in the air, Orebro will be desperately needing to snatch three points on July 4, 22:00 (GMT+8). But fifth place team Djurgarden will also be expected to work hard to earn a much-needed victory, as both teams look to come out from a series of draw matches against other clubs. The match will take place at the Tele2 Arena in Stockholm.
A 1-1 draw with Djurgarden took Age Hareide's Malmo a spot higher in the league table. But traveling to Norrkopings Idrottspark on July 5, 00:00 (GMT+8), opponents Norrkoping boast a five-match winning streak at home, against Malmo's inconsistent away record, having only two wins in their last five games as visitors. With Jan Andersson's men motivated as they eye a triumph in taking the second place, the defending champions will have to continue fighting.
Falkenbergs and Elfsborg have met only three times in their history and so far, the latter are the ones proving dominant over the winless Falkenbergs. Whether in Falkenbergs or in Boras Arena, it is Elfsborg that comes out triumphant. Their last match could have gone either way though, so Elfsborg need to be careful this time. Will their mastery over Hans Eklund's side continue? Match is on July 5 at 21:00 (GMT+8).
Stromsgodset won against Viking the last time they met. Luckily for Stromsgodset, the rematch will take place again at the Marienlyst Stadion. Expect their 15th game week meeting to be as close as before as both are gunning to break their tied head-to-head record of 12 wins and 12 losses. Will Stromsgodset be able to protect their home again or will Viking snatch the victory? Match is on July 5 at 21:30 (GMT+8).
