Ostersund vs Dalkurd
Date: Friday, 5 October 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Jamtkraft Arena (Ostersund).
Ostersund will be hoping to keep the splendid run of form going on Friday evening when they are to raise the curtain on the 25th round of Allsvenskan with the home clash against the relegation-threatened Dalkurd.
The hosts continued their bid for the European football with a 0-2 victory over top-half rivals Djurgarden on Sunday. Ian Burchnall’s men were in full control throughout the entire course of the game at Tele2 Arena. They went ahead through Ronald Mukiibi, while Dennis Widgren doubled the lead just after the interval to set the final score.
Ostersund thus made it two straight wins by two goals difference in Allsvenskan. They will have a nice chance to maintain such a fine trend here against the struggling opposition.
Ostersund vs Dalkurd: Head-to-head
It is interesting to note that Ostersund have never managed to beat Dalkurd.
Dalkurd won three and drew three of six H2H affairs against Ostersund.
The streak includes a demolishing 3-0 victory for Dalkurd when the two teams met each other in April this year at Domnarsvallen.
It was their first official meeting since 2012 when they battled it out in the second tier of the Swedish football.
Ostersund vs Dalkurd: Prediction
Dalkurd are in desperate need for points being three points shy of the relegation play-offs with six games left to play. They sit second from bottom and will come into this off the back of a demolishing 0-4 defeat to table-toppers AIK last weekend.
Furthermore, Johan Sandahl’s troops have been dreadful travellers so far in the season. They won two, drew two and lost eight of twelve away fixtures in the competition.
Scoring goals was a big task for the visitors lately as they failed to find the back of the net on more than one occasion in last four league matches. Given Ostersund enter the math with three straight wins under their belts, we have to expect a pleasant evening for the local fans at Jamtkraft Arena.
