Orebro vs Halmstad
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Friday, 20th October 2017
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Behrn Arena (Orebro).
Halmstad could mathematically lose all hopes of saving the top flight status after this Friday when they travel to Behrn Arena to tackle the mid-table Orebro.
The visitors are eight points away from the relegation playoffs which leaves them only theoretical chances of making it in the final three fixtures of the campaign.
The match with the rock-bottomed Halmstad won’t change much for Orebro who can’t go anywhere in the remaining three games of the season.
However, Axel Kjall’s side will be motivated to bounce back from a 3-0 defeat at Ostersunds last weekend which saw them ending the two-win run.
Igor Krulj’s men have found it tough to find goals throughout the entire season.
Four points taken from clashes with Kalmar and Norrkoping revoke the spirits at Orjans Vall, but the back-to-back defeats to Malmo FF and IFK Goteborg have pushed them towards Superettan.
Orebro vs Halmstad: Head to head
Interestingly, Halmstad have been the more successful side in the history of head to head encounters and they are undefeated in last four meetings with Orebro.
Each of last three games between the two likes saw no winner which is why we’ll be looking at the 3.60 odds offered for this one to end in a draw too.
Orebro vs Halmstad: Prediction
The hosts are 1.66 to pick up points, but looking at the head to head stats and the recent form shown by Halmstad (solid performances in losses to the likes of Malmo and Goteborg), we see the Under 2.5 goals FT as a much wiser option set at 2.35.
Orebro vs Halmstad: Bet Tips
The first betting pick is Under 2.5 goals FT at the odds of 2.35.
Braver tipsters will go for the fourth straight draw between these two at 3.60.
