Elfsborg vs Ostersunds Prediction & Match Preview

Elfsborg vs Ostersunds
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Sunday, 23 August 2020
Kick-Off at 13:30 UK/ 14:30 CET
Venue: Borås Arena (Borås).

The Yellow ones are second in the table trying to get to the top replacing Malmo. Even though they have been excellent in attack the defence needs major improvement if they need to be in the title race. They are also under pressure from the reigning champions Djurgardens.

The visitors have won both their recent league games. This has helped them get out a long-running winless streak. But still winning against an in form Elfsborg is a Herculean task. Especially since their attack has only scored 14 goals so far and the defence has been lazy conceding more than the goals they scored.

Elfsborg vs Ostersunds: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Elfsborg is on a two-match wins streak against this opposition.
  • Both sides have two wins each in their last five meetings.
  • Fewer than 2.5 goals were scored in four of those five games across different venues.
  • The home team has three wins and a loss in the last five head to head games here.
  • More than 2.5 goals were scored in four of those five matches at this ground.

Elfsborg vs Ostersunds: Prediction

Apart from the defeat to Hammarby in their first away game, Ostersunds are currently on an unbeaten run. At the same time, the hosts and Malmo are the only teams that have not lost a home fixture this season. But at the same time, the recent two wins for the visitors came against the team at the bottom of the table. So based on the head to head history I am a backing the Yellow Ones to get all three points in this one.

Even though they are second in the table, their backline is not the best in the competition. They are still under the shock of the massive 6-0 away defeat to Hacken.  Similarly, they have given away goals to many mid-table teams even though they won the game. So I think we will be able to see both nets bulge on Sunday.
