Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
After failing to win previous eight league games, Ostersunds FK will be aiming to get back on course in the Allsvenskan when they welcome Norrkoping at their Jamtkraft Arena on Matchday 15. Ian Burchnall’s troops shared the spoils with the likes of GIF Sundsvall, IFK Goteborg and Sirius in previous three league fixtures, but seeing that Norrkoping have been producing fine performances on the road this season, we believe that away win should be considered.
The White-Blue recorded three wins in previous four away games in the Swedish elite division and considering that they scored exactly two goals in each of their last four away fixtures. Norkkoping aim to stay in the race for a place in European competitions, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the visitors. In their last meeting at Jamtkraft the White-Blue defeated Ian Burchnall’s men 2-0.
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.
