Orebro vs Goteborg
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Sunday, 16th July 2017
Kick off at 14:00 UK Time
Venue: Behm Arena, Orebro.
As we reach the half way point in Sweden’s top division, home team Orebro are in 11th position of 16 teams but they do have a safety gap of 10 points from the relegation zone. The feeling is that whilst the club has under achieved so far, they won’t be relegated, but they really do need to kick on and gain more points.
They were in the process of this before losing last week to Hammarby, and before that loss had gone 4 matches unbeaten including winning 3 in a row. Now returning to their home stadium they will be wanting to get back to winning ways.
Orebro tend to beat teams lower or at the same stage of them in the league where they have won 4 from 7 home games. But in the past five weeks they have lost two matches at home.
They will be facing IFK Gothenburg who are in 10th place and have the same points as them and so this has become quite an important game. Gothenburg’s recent form has been dogged by too many draws and in fact they have just one win in their last four games.
Away from home Gothenburg have the 4th best record in the league but then again they have still lost 45% of their games on the road.
