Elfsborg vs Pafos Preview 


Pafos don’t have any experience playing European matches. Elfsborg have won their last five games at Boras Arena, including a 3-1 win against the champions Malmo, so a home win is the best bet.

Head to Head 


This is going to be the first head to head encounter between Elfsborg and Pafos. 

Elfsborg Form 


Elfsborg have been inconsistent lately in the Swedish Allsvenskan, winning two and losing three of their last five league encounters. 

After suffering back to back defeats against Malmo 2-1 and IFK Goteborg 1-0, they returned to winning ways last weekend at home against Brommapojkarna 3-0, Simon Hedlund, Michael Baidoo and Eggert Gudmundsson on target. 

Oscar Hiljemark’s side is currently sitting in 7th place with 19 points from 14 matches. 

The Yellows haven’t competed in the Europa League since 2015 when they were eliminated 3-2 on aggregate by Odd Grenland. 

Elfsborg Injury & Team News 


Defender Ibrahim Buhari is injured. 

Pafos Form 


Pafos played series of friendly matches to prepare for their upcoming European challenges, beating Universitate Craiova 2-1 and Ilirija 5-0, followed by a goalless draw against Panathinaikos. 

Their last competitive match was in mid-May, Cypriot Cup finals against Omonia Nicosia which they won 3-0, Muamer Tankovic, Vlad Dragomir and Pepe Rodrigues on target. 

Pafos ended as 5th in the Cypriot 1. Division last season with 62 points from 36 matches, 11 points behind the champions APOEL Nicosia. 

Pafos Injury & Team News 


There are no injured or suspended players for Pafos ahead of this match. 

Verdict

Elfsborg are one of the strongest hosts in the Swedish Allsvenskan, having won their last five contests at Boras Arena. Pafos never played in the Europa League before, so I am backing home win.
