Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
After suffering three consecutive defeats in the Allsvenskan, Ostersunds will be aiming to get back on course when they face Kalmar on Matchday 23. Ian Burchnall’s troops have been struggling at the back of late, but Saturday’s football match against Kalmar could be the turning point for the relegation strugglers. Kalmar have been totally out of form in recent weeks, with the team conceding nine goals in total in back-to-back defeats to the likes of Goteborg and Malmo.
Ostersunds are determined to take advantage of the fact that Kalmar struggle at the back and we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. In their last meeting at Jamtkraft Arena Ostersunds outplayed Kalmar and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. It has to be noted that Norwegian defender Eirik Haugan returns from suspension for the hosts.
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.
