Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
Hacken will be aiming to put an end to their four-match winless run in the Allsvenskan when they welcome Ostersunds at their Bravida Arena on Matchday 27. The Getingarna have slim chances of booking their place in European competitions and seeing that the visitors are eager to move away from the danger zone, home win should not be considered.
Hacken suffered a dip in form, but seeing that they are tough to beat at home, we predict that they are going to grab something from Sunday’s football match. Ian Burchnall’s charges, on the other hand, are on a six-game losing run in the Swedish top flight and, as a result, they are only two points clear of the relegation zone. The visitors want this win more than the hosts, but given Hacken’s fine home record in the Allsvenskan, we are tempted to put our money on draw.
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.
