Match Stats

Elfsborg secured their place in the Europa League this year by finishing second in the Allsvenskan in 2023, their best league finish since winning the Swedish title in 2012. Their last European campaign in 2022 ended early in the Europa Conference League qualifiers against Molde.

With 126 matches in European competitions, including 10 in the Champions League, Elfsborg has a rich history but is not considered favorites to advance far this season.

Meanwhile, celebrating their 10th anniversary, Pafos FC are riding high after winning their first major trophy, the Cypriot Cup, in the 2023-24 season. This achievement earned them a spot in the Europa League qualifiers for the first time. Despite their lack of experience at this level, Pafos boasts attacking talent like Brazilian veteran Jairo, who has scored 34 goals in the last two seasons in the Cypriot top division.

Pafos prepared for their clash against Elfsborg with three unbeaten friendlies, including a goalless draw against Panathinaikos. Their defensive solidity will be crucial as they face Elfsborg at Boras Arena.


Prediction: Elfsborg 1-0 Pafos FC
