Orebro vs Hacken: Preview and Prediction

Orebro vs Hacken:
Swedish Allsvenskan.
Date: Sunday, July 17, 2016
Kick-Off – 16:30 UK Time.
Venue: Behrn Arena (Orebro).

Fourth placed Orebro host seventh placed Hacken in the round of 14 of Swedish Allsvenskan 2016 at the Behrn Arena on Sunday.

Orebro’s five match unbeaten run was put to an end by the league leaders Malmo last Monday. But this also registered their third consecutive match without a one after drawing the previous two. They were second in the league and is now overtaken by Norrkoping and Goteborg. The fifth placed AIK are level on points with them, while Elfsborg is closing in at a 3 point distance.

Hacken are on a five match unbeaten run and registered their second win a row with the 4-2 thriller against Hammarby last weekend. They had lost 6 of the 7 matches prior to this and were dropping closer to the relegation zone. Now with four wins in the last five matches, they had climbed to 7th in the standings and are at 4 points gap with Sunday’s opponents Orebro.

Orebro vs Hacken: Head-to-Head

  • Overall (22 matches): Orebro – 10 wins, Hacken – 9 wins, Draws – 3.
  • Orebro at home vs Hacken (10 matches): 6 wins, 1 draws, 3 losses.
  • Orebro had won the last two home matches against Hacken, while losing the previous one.
  • There was only one draw out of the 15 matches between the two sides at all venues.

Orebro vs Hacken: Prediction

Orebro are desperate for a win to get back to winning ways after failing to win in their last three. They are coming on the back of a 5 match unbeaten run at home, winning 4 during the period. Also they had won in 4 of the last 5 home matches against Hacken.

Hacken are unbeaten in the last two away games, but lost the previous three. Also they had won just 1 away game this season and that too against a poor relegation threatened Falkenberg FF. However they are unbeaten in the last 5 league games and I believe this record will be under threat on Sunday.

The last 11 matches between these two sides haven’t ended in a draw, with the home side dominating the proceedings for the majority of the time. So I expect Orebro to gain a clean win on Sunday and get back to winning ways.
