Kick off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Guldfågeln Arena (Kalmar).
Kalmar are currently lurking in the relegation zone with just fourteen points from their clashes so far. The squad are also without a win in their last six matches and have only just brought a five-match losing streak to a halt last week, with a 2-2 draw against Hammarby at home.
Orebro, on the other hand, are eighth in the table and will be coming into the clash on Monday, unbeaten in their last three matches. The visitors staged a remarkable comeback in their last matchup against Goteborg, where they held their foes to a 2-2 scoreline with a stoppage-time goal from Wright.
The away side have been faring comparatively well in their trips on the road and will be eying the three points when they lock horns with Kalmar who are sporting the second-worst home record at the moment.

Kalmar vs Orebro Prediction
The hosts have been letting down their home fans for quite some time now and are the only team, in the league to have just one win on home soil. The home team have scored not more than four goals in their last five clashes here, and have also admitted defeat in four of those five.
The away side have been displaying a much better run of form in their outings and have picked up the win four times in their last six trips. Furthermore, their only two defeats from those six came against sides from inside the top ten.
Considering that Kalmar have not got the better of their foes in their last three games here either, a defeat is certainly looking imminent for the hosts.
The home team have not been much of a threat to any of their opponents, and have amassed not more than eight goals from their clashes on home soil. Given their poor attacking presence in the final third, it looks likely that Orebro will be getting the business done comfortably with under 2.5 goals on the scorecards.
