Orebro vs Djurgarden
Date: Monday, 8 April 2019
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Behrn Arena (Orebro).
Orebro host Djurgarden in the second round of Swedish Allsvenskan on Monday evening at Behrn Arena. The hosts will be hoping to fix the poor impression they left last weekend when they fell to recently promoted Falkenberg side 1-0 on the road.
The opening fixture announced the team led by Axel Kjall could struggle without their top scorer from the previous season. Nigerian forward Kennedy Igboananike left the team leaving it crippled in the final third. It was no wonder Orebro failed to find more than one goal in last two friendlies against Elfsborg and Finnish Mariehamn.
The hosts generally found goals hard to come by last season when they notched no more than 34 in 30 league rounds. Can they bag their maiden goal of the new campaign here against Djurgarden?
Orebro vs Djurgarden: Head-to-head
The head to head record speaks against Orebro as Blaranderna lead the H2H tie by 15 wins coming into 41st meeting with Orebro.
Djurgarden won six and drew one of last seven encounters with Orebro.
Djurgarden notched two or more goals in seven of last eight meetings with Orebro.
Orebro vs Djurgarden: Prediction
The visitors made a number of changes to their squad after an underwhelming campaign in the previous term of Allsvenskan. They signed Mohamed Buya Turay to lead the line and Sierra Leone’s striker notched a goal in his league debut for Blaranderna last weekend.
Djurgarden generally got off to a dream start of their home fixture with GIF Sundsvall going 2-0 up by 15th minute of the affair, but they dropped the lead as game ended in a 2-2 draw.
The quality is no doubts on the visitors’ side and we see them as favourites to clinch the first victory of the season. Orebro looked toothless in the final third against league newcomers Falkenberg in the first outing of the season and we can hardly see them hurt Djurgarden here.
