Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
After suffering back-to-back losses to the likes of Djurgarden and Norrkoping, Elfsborg will be looking to start a new winning run in the Allsvenskan when they face Ostersunds at their Boras Arena. The hosts have been slipping down the standings week by week and their top flight status could be in great danger soon. Elfsborg are desperate to grab something from Monday’s football match and given Ostersunds’ poor form, we believe that home win should be considered.
Ian Burchnall’s troops failed to win previous four league fixtures and seeing that they have been struggling in front of goal of late, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed from the trip to Boras. In three of their last four meetings in the Allsvenskan Ostersunds emerged triumphant, meaning that the hosts are determined to get their revenge on the visiting team.
Highlighted Team (Ostersunds):
Against all odds, Ostersunds made it to the 2017/2018 Europa League group stages. Despite being regarded as big underdogs in the two-legged tie against PAOK, the Swedish club did well to shock the Greek side in the play-off round and, as a result, they will have a chance to prove their worth on the big stage.
Ostersunds will face the likes of Zorya, Hertha and Athletic Bilbao in Group J and they will welcome their rivals at their Jamtkraft Arena. The stadium was opened on July 13, 2007 and the capacity of the venue is 8.466. Ostersunds, who were promoted to the Swedish top flight in 2016, did well to win the 2016/2017 Swedish Cup and that is considered as the club’s biggest success. The club was founded in 1996 and they are well known for their jerseys with red and black stripes.
Ostersunds play their away games in white shirts and white shorts and the likes of Saman Ghoddos, Jamie Hopcutt, Jamal Blackman, Samuel Mensiro, Michael Tidser, David Accam, Brian Wake, Lee Makel and Connor Ripley are the notable footballers who played for the Swedish club in the past.
