Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
After suffering five consecutive defeats in the Allsvenskan, Ostersunds will be looking to give fans something to cheer about when they face Orebro at Behrn Arena on Wednesday evening. Ian Burchnall’s troops are only two points clear of the relegation zone and seeing that Orebro have little to play for in the season finale, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the away team.
Bjorn Aqvist’s troops experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Norrkoping which is giving Ostersunds fans a reason for optimism ahead of the trip to Orebro. In their last meeting in the Swedish top flight Orebro defeated Ostersunds 3-1, meaning that the visitors are hungry for revenge. One of the men to watch in the away team will be Swedish attacker Dino Islamovic, who has netted 6 goals so far this season.
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.
