Norrkoping vs Ostersunds
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Sunday, 21 July 2019
Kick-off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET
Venue: Ostgotaporten (Norrkoping).
The hosts enjoyed a positive result in their most recent game at home where they clinched a 2-1 win against St. Patrick’s in the Europa League Qualifiers.
However in the league, they succumbed a 2-1 defeat, on the road, and it was at the hands of this very same foe. The squad made just as many strides forward as their counterparts in that tie and had more shots on target as well but were far less clinical, for which they paid the price.
The away side clinched the win in the dying stages of the game to take all three points. However, the visitors will certainly have their work cut out for them this week, with home advantage favoring Norrkoping this time.
The hosts are seventh in the table with twenty-four points, while their opponents are right behind them on eighth, trailing by five points albeit with a game in hand.

Norrkoping vs Ostersunds Prediction
The home team are more than likely to come out on top when they welcome the visitors to their midst on Sunday.
The clash away from home did not return a favorable outcome for them. However, on home soil, they are at their best.
The squad have won by a goal difference of two or more goals against this side in four out of their last five encounters at this venue.
The visitors have not been impressive in their recent run of form on the road either and have just one win in their last five outings.
Both the sides have been consistent in finding the back of the net in their recent games though, so it’s safe to expect the two teams to get their names on the scoresheet.
However, we can count on the hosts to be the ones to pick up the win at the end of the ninety minutes.
