Aron Wright - May 24, 2018

Ostersunds FK vs Hacken
Swedish Allsvenskan
Date: Saturday, 26 May 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Jamtkraft Arena, Ostersund.

Ostersunds started the season in a slow fashion, but they look to have gained the much-needed confidence of late. Graham Potter’s side will come into Saturday’s home tie with Hacken in high spirits after clinching four points in away games against AIK and GIF Sundsvall.

A win here would be crucial for the hosts to keep ground on the top half sides as they’ll face hard times getting points on the board in the next couple of weeks when Potter’s men are about to take on Hammarby and Malmo FF on the road.

Hacken are also amid a rather tough schedule featuring matches against AIK, Ostersunds and Norrkpping , but they’ve made a better start to the campaign sitting 6th at the moment. They have a chance to jump over Kalmar in 5th with a result at Jamtkraft Arena, meaning the pressure will be on the home outfit here.

Ostersunds FK vs Hacken: Head-to-head

Ostersunds won three, drew one and lost two of six head to head meetings with Hacken.

Last two H2H affairs brought no more than one goal in total.

Ostersunds won two and drew one of last three ties with Getingarna.

Teams have a win, a draw, and a loss each in three H2H games at Jamtkraft Arena.

Ostersunds FK vs Hacken: Prediction

The hosts showed the attacking potential last weekend when they bagged three goals past GIF Sundsvall. Nevertheless, they clearly struggle to produce up front against well-organized defensive line sand they’ve failed to find the net in three of last four home ties in the league.

Hacken held clean sheets against the likes of Sirius and Trelleborgs in away matches this year and they conceded just two goals in a rather narrow defeat to the reigning champions Malmo FF last time out. As we expect to see a close encounter with very few goal-scoring chances at both ends, the Under 2.5 goals FT appears to be the best of the betting options. You can back it at the odds of 1.95. As for the outcome, the value goes out with the draw, set at 3.40 odds.
