Goteborg vs Orebro
Date: Saturday, 14 July 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Gamla Ullevi, Goteborg.
IFK Goteborg only continued from where they stopped before the summer break, falling 1-3 at home to sixth-placed Kalmar last weekend. Anglarna thus made it four defeats and a draw in last five league games, having lost each of last three in Allsvenskan.
Can Goteborg finally bring the crisis to an end on Saturday evening when Orebro come to visit Gamla Ullevi?
Axel Kjall’s men offered a disappointing showing in the 1-2 loss to the bottom-half Elfsborg last weekend. The defeat, provoked by a lame performance at the back, came as a surprise after impressive back-to-back clean sheet wins over Sirius and GIF Sundsvall (5-0 on aggregate) in mid-season.
The visitors thus dropped down to seventh place in the league standings and a potential failure here could well hurt their aspirations for the top-four finish and the Europa League appearance next summer.

Goteborg vs Orebro: Prediction
Both sides proved out to be fairly vulnerable at the back in the recent period. Looking at their latest H2H results, we just have to for goals as the main betting suggestion here. You can back the Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS pick at the 2.10 odds.
As far as outcome goes, the value is with the visitors who are well worth backing not to lose at 1.66 in spite of a poor head to head record in matches with IFK Goteborg.
Orebro showed a much better form before the aforementioned home loss to Elfsborg last weekend and they should be in position to bounce back here and take advantage of a dreadful spell of form of Goteborg’s.
Remember, the hosts head into this off the back of four defeats and a draw in last five league games and after losing three on the trot in front of the home fans in Allsvenskan.
