With Gameweek 1 put to the books and the Allsvenskan Fantasy game charging on, we are treated with a slew of big games this coming weekend as Häcken entertain Malmö, AIK travel to Göteborg and Djurgården attempts to build upon their successful start at home to Norrköping.
Gameweek 1 review
This section is intended to house some personal thoughts alongside community reviews going forward, the content contained within dependant on available time and interest from the community here and on Twitter. We will try to keep it somewhat short and sweet with the key takeaways taking the central stage.
@poohdini59 on Twitter provided us with these superb summaries of data points from GW1:
As you can see Jacob Bergström was perhaps a bit unlucky not to score and might find an open Hammarby a better opportunity to get on the scoresheet. Malmö and AIK were the big xG performers but Mjällby and Kalmar are very high up there in terms of shots in the box.
Overall while defenders tend to do well in Allsvenskan Fantasy, this amount of clean sheets seem unsustainable and we could see a lot more goals in GW2.
If you haven’t already, be sure to check out @BitacoraFantasy on Twitter who wrote an article on FFS about players to watch after GW1.
