Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
Ostersunds FK do not seem to be on top of their game ahead of Saturday’s football match against GIF Sundsvall. Ostersunds are on a three-game losing run, with the team conceding 10 goals in total in previous three league fixtures. The hosts failed to win previous five league games, meaning that they are desperate to grab something from the game. GIF Sundsvall, on the hand, suffered four defeats in previous five league matches and, as a result, they sit in the relegation zone in the Allsvenskan standings.
Both teams are eager to get back on course, but, no doubt, they should be happy with one point from Saturday’s clash. Dino Islamovic, who has scored four goals in the national championship so far this season, is likely to pose a big threat for GIF Sundsvall back-line, whilst Ostersunds FK defenders should have Linus Hallenius at bay.
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.
