Ostersund vs Orebro
Date: Monday, 20 May 2019
Kick-Off 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Jamtkraft Arena (Ostersund).
It’s been a roller-coaster campaign for Ostersund so far in the season. They lacked consistency very much in these opening nine rounds, but the head coach Ian Burchnall can still be satisfied with the fact his troops did get some wins every now and then. The bad news for the English manager is his team’s recent form.
Ostersund head into Monday’s tie with Orebro winless in three consecutive league outings. They suffered a genuine disaster last Tuesday falling 4-0 away at Hammarby. Burchnall will rely on his team’s stellar form on the home patch aiming to see his troops rebounding from such a catastrophic loss.
Ostersund are yet to lose at Jamtkraft Arena this season. They won two and drew two of four home outings so far in the campaign. If we add a 3-0 thumping of Sirius in Svenska Cupen back in March, we can say Burchnall’s men are very tough to beat in their own backyard.

Ostersund vs Orebro: Prediction
Much like their counterparts, Orebro have had their own ups and downs so far in the season. Their confidence suddenly grew with a 1-2 victory over GIF Sundsvall, but Axel Kjall’s troops quickly returned to the old habits losing Thursday’s home fixture against Norrkoping 1-2.
Neither of these two teams can be especially proud of their defensive performances at the start of the season. Three of four games Ostersund played in front of their crowd saw goals scored at both ends. On the other side, all of last seven of Orebro’s Allsvenskan ties saw the Both Teams To Score option coming in.
You can back this scenario at 1.75 odds. The best alternative pick would be draw at the half time at 2.30 as we really feel I will be hard to separate these two sides on Monday.
