Jonkopings Sodra vs Orebro
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Sunday, 13th August 2017
Kick-off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET
Venue: Stadsparksvallen, Jonkoping.
Despite Jonkopings and Orebro are separated only by one position, the gap after 18 games played is not a small one as six points separate the two sides. Jonkopings will have a chance to reduce that gap to three points as they host Orebro on Sunday afternoon at Stadsparksvallen.
Jonkopings suffered an alarming defeat last weekend as next-to-last Halmstad steamrolled them with 6-1. They conceded four goals in the first 20 minutes, an unacceptable performance for any team from the top tier.
The home team is one of the most inconsistent sides in Allsvenskan since they managed to string two victories only once this season. Jonkopings are hoping to recover from the shameful defeat immediately, and beating Orebro would surely bring a lot to the team on the psychological terms.
The visitors are unbeaten in the last four outings in the domestic league. After the victory over Goteborg, Orebro streaked three draws.
Orebro are the third-worst defense in the league with 29 goals allowed so far. Surprisingly, they conceded more on the home turf than on the road, but still, keeping a clean sheet is an unlikely scenario.
Jonkopings vs Orebro: Head-to-head
Orebro won three out of last five meetings between the two sides. In the last four matches between Jonkopings and Orebro, both teams managed to score at least a goal.
Jonkopings vs Orebro: Prediction
Jonkopings’ defense is in horrible shape, so is Orebro’s, and hence betting on goals is the smart choice. Jonkopings will most likely concede early again, but Orebro aren’t successful in preserving their lead, so in that case, we will witness an open game with a lot of chances in front of both goals.
