Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
Norrkoping and Ostersunds meet for the second time in just five days in the Swedish top flight. Norrkoping aim to get their revenge on Ostersunds for a 2-1 loss at Jamtkraft Arena, but seeing that only five points separate the two teams in the Allsvenskan standings, a close encounter is on the cards at Ostgotaporten stadium.
Jens Gustafsson’s troops are after their fourth home win of the season and seeing that they have netted 10 goals in front of home fans to date, we are positive that the Kamraterna are going to find the net in Sunday’s football match. Ostersunds, on the other hand, are brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to Norrkoping and given the fact that they are undefeated in previous four league fixtures, we are positive that the visitors will grab something from the Ostgotaporten clash as well.
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.
