Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
Ostersunds FK will be looking to put an end to their six-game losing run in the Allsvenskan when they take on league leaders Djurgarden on Monday evening. Ostersunds FK are only two points clear of bottom three in the standings, meaning that this match is of big importance for the relegation strugglers. However, given their poor form, we do not believe that the hosts are capable of grabbing something from the Jamtkraft Arena clash.
Djurgarden, on the other hand, are determined to win their first domestic trophy since 2005 and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Ian Burchnall’s troops on Matchday 26. The league leaders recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Falkenberg in midweek, but seeing that Malmo are breathing down their neck, this has to go down as yet another must-win game for the visitors.
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.
