Our football match prediction:
Buoyed by a 2-0 win over Zorya, Ostersunds head into Thursday’s football match against Hertha Berlin. The Swedish outfit have been scoring goals for fun in all competitions this season and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against the Bundesliga outfit. Ostersunds recorded a win in each of their previous three home games in the Europa League and that is certainly giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Hertha. The German club played out a goalless draw with Athletic Bilbao in their opener and, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from Thursday’s match against the Swedish side as well. Pal Dardai’s men are not regarded as good travelers, but the Hungarian tactician has a number of very experienced players to choose from and we predict that the visitors will grab something from their second group game.
