Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
AFC Eskilstuna will be aiming to make amends for a heavy 6-1 defeat to Hammarby when they take on Ostersunds at Jamtkraft Arena on Saturday afternoon. AFC Eskilstuna have been dropping down the standings week by week, with the team heading into the match as the rock-bottom side. The visitors must be low on confidence ahead of the trip to Ostersund and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling the home side’s party at Jamtkraft Arena.
Daniel Kindberg’s men, on the other hand, are tough to beat at home and seeing that they managed to hold league leaders Malmo to a goalless draw at the weekend, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. You should bear in mind that Ostersunds are eyeing their seventh consecutive win over AFC Eskilstuna in all competitions.
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.
