Kalmar vs Orebro
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Thursday, 6 August 2020
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Guldfageln Arena.
It seems the Red brothers have not learned anything from their disappointing campaign last season. They managed to stay at the top flight for one year winning the relegation playoffs.
But they are at the bottom of the table in the new season after losing more than half of their 12 matches.
They have lost the most number of games than any other team in the league. They are also the worst defensive unit which has given away 19 goals. Currently they are on a three match drawing run which may help them against Orebro.
Kalmar vs Orebro: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Orebro has a seven match unbeaten streak going on against this opposition.
- Both sides found the back of the net in four of those seven games across all venues.
- The last time Kalmar won this fixture was back in May 2016.
- The away team remains unbeaten in three previous trips to this ground.
- Fewer than 2.5 goals were scored in all three of those clashes here.
Kalmar vs Orebro: Prediction
The hosts are the only team to not yet reach ten points this season. But the three consecutive draws have given them hope. Even though they are at the bottom the attacking unit has done their part scoring 14 goals across all venues.
With the visitors losing back to back games they will have a chance if they manage to keep things tidy at the back on Thursday. Because both teams are on a winless run in home and away games respectively, we can expect a draw here on Thursday.
In the majority of their meetings in recent years, both sides managed to score goals. Kalmar is definitely going to concede in upcoming games also, with the current defensive performance. They have not won against these opponents since 2016 as well.
But they have a great attacking unit which can create chances against a brittle visiting side. So I am backing a draw with goals from both teams.
