Orebro vs Norrkoping
Date: Thursday, 15 May 2019
Kick-Off 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Behrn Arena (Orebro).
Orebro claimed their second win of the season on Saturday when they dispatched GIF Sundsvall 1-2 on the road. Right winger Jake Larsson was the hero as his late second-half brace made all the difference between the teams. Axel Kjall’s men thus successfully rebounded from a negative thread of two losses and a draw in three matches beforehand. Can they build on the weekend’s victory and make it two wins on the spin against bottom-half rivals Norrkoping on Thursday?
The visitors finished the previous season as runners-up, but they are not pulling up any trees at the start of the new campaign. The huge amount of draws is the main reason as Peking shared spoils on five occasions in eight league rounds so far. They ended a three-draw run with a 1-2 home loss to red-hot and second-placed Goteborg on Monday.
Orebro vs Norrkoping: Head-to-head
We should be in for goals galore on Thursday evening at Behrn Arena judging by the most recent head to head history between these two likes.
As many as seven of past eight head to head encounters produced goals at both ends.
Norrkoping claimed a 3-2 victory when these two likes last met each other in November last year.
Peking won two and drew two of past four clashes against Orebro.
Orebro vs Norrkoping: Prediction
The visitors can rely on quality here, but the question is whether they had enough time to recover after Monday’s match against Goteborg. Orebro had two days more to rest which is why we’d advise you to skip any high-stake bets in terms of the outcome.
The betting option you can hardly make a mistake with is definitely Both Teams To Score at 1.61 odds. Both sides scored and conceded goals with ease at the start of the season and we would be very surprised to see any of them keeping a clean sheet here. The head to head tradition also goes in the favour of this pick.
