Ostersunds FK vs Hertha BSC
UEFA Europa League
Date: 28th September 2017
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Jamtkraft Arena.
Ostersunds FK have made a historical success by reaching the group stage in their maiden season in Europa League.
It was, however, not enough for the English manager Graham Potter whose squad opened the competition with an impressive performance in beating Zorya 0-2 on the road two weeks ago.
Can they back it up and avoid a defeat in the second round when they host German Hertha BSC at Jamtkraft Arena?
Potter clearly has huge expectations from the continental competition as he rested some of his key players in the weekend’s away loss at Kalmar in Allsvenskan.
The star striker Saman Ghoddos (bagged four goals in last four matches) is expected to be back in the squad for Hertha BSC clash and he would be our top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer pick at the odds of 21/10.
Pal Dardai’s men have been struggling a lot with the efficiency at the start of the new season.
The Australian midfielder Matthew Leckie has been the main force in the final third as he already has four goals to his name so far in the season.
The visitors shared spoils by playing a goalless draw with Athletic Bilbao on the opening day in Europa League, while they dropped the ball losing 1-0 to Mainz 05 in the previous Bundesliga clash last weekend.
