Orebro vs Elfsborg
Date: Sunday, 8 July 2018
Kick-Off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET
Venue: Behrn Arena, Orebro.
Jimmy Thelin looks to have found a winning formula for Elfsborg who escaped the relegation scrap after making a dreadful start to the new Allsvenskan campaign.
Di Gule went on the summer break after back-to-back wins which saw them net as many as six goals past Dalkurd and Trelleborg. They kept such form, going in mid-season friendlies beating both Hacken and FC Helsingor (2-1 both), but can they capitalize on such results with another success in the first league fixture after the restart?
It will certainly be anything but an easy task for the visitors who are up against the fifth-placed Orebro on Sunday afternoon. Axel Kjall’s troops were also more than impressive in the mid-season period clinching comprehensive straight victories over Sirius and GIF Sundsvall. Overall, they shipped no goals at all in last three matches if we count the mentioned friendlies.
Orebro vs Elfsborg: Head-to-head

Orebro vs Elfsborg: Prediction
Both teams will generally come into the match high on confidence after decent showings they’ve put on during the mid-season as well as before the interval. Both teams to score was quite a frequent scenario in the most recent history of their head to head clashes and given they were both scoring goals with ease in latest outings, we’ll shoot for the BTTS as the main betting option at 1.57 odds.
The match can go either way which is why we will take the Over 2.5 goals FT instead of outcome bets as an alternative betting option. The odds for such scenario can be found at 1.70.
