Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
Kalmar will be aiming to make amends for a heavy 5-0 loss to Djurgarden when they host Ostersunds at their Guldfageln Arena. The start of the season has been a mixed bag for Kalmar, but they have a good chance to return to winning ways in Allsvenskan. Even though experienced midfielder Romarinho misses the midweek clash through suspension, the Roda broder are seen as favourites to win the game.
Ostersunds experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-2 defeat to Norrkoping, and given their anything but good start to the season, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. Ian Burchnall’s troops do not seem to be on top of their game at the moment, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Kalmar’s party at Guldfageln Arena on Matchday 5.
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.
