Norrkoping v Djurgardens

We're getting towards the height of summer and while it might not feel like if it you live in the UK, a glance at the football fixture list will confirm it.

There's not a lot for props punters to go at with the action in Scandinavia looking the best on offer.

It's the time of year where you shouldn't look to overcomplicate things and I'm happy to play a more obvious bet than usual on Monday.

Leg 1: Djurgardens to win

It comes in the Swedish Allsvenskan where second-bottom Norrkoping host third-placed Djurgardens.

The hosts have accumulated just 11 points from their 12 games thus far and come into this contest with the worst defensive record in the top flight having conceded 32 times.

They've claimed only one of the last 18 points available, suffering 5-1, 4-0 and 6-2 defeats in that period.

Their opponents here mean there's every chance of that poor run being extended.

Djurgardens have won five of their last six, scoring multiple goals in all five victories, and know w win is required if they are to keep the pressure on leaders Malmo.

Leg 2: Deniz Hummet to score

Their key man in attacking terms has been Deniz Hummet, who has bagged 10 goals in 17 starts this season. Notably, the majority of those have come away from home.

Hummet also has a decent record against these opponents. While he's in his first season at Djurgardens, his eight previous games against Norrkoping with other clubs have resulted in five goals.

Therefore, Djurgardens to win with Hummet scoring at any time looks a strong play at 2/13.00.
