Ostersunds vs Kalmar Prediction & Match Preview

Ostersunds vs Kalmar
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Monday, 17 August 2020
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Jamtkraft Arena (Ostersund)

Both the hosts and the visitors are trying their best to stay away from the relegation zone. The home team has picked up a third win for the season in their last league game. But winning by one goal against the relegation side AIK Stockholm was not a big deal. But nevertheless, those three points helped them very much.

Kalmar is only out of the danger zone because of a slight goal difference with Stockholm. Currently, they are seated 13th in the table just two points short of their upcoming rivals. Like many squads at the wrong end of the table, they have conceded more than 20 goals.

Ostersunds vs Kalmar: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The home team has two wins and a loss in five previous meetings with this opposition.
  • Both sides found the back of the net in four of those five matches across all venues.
  • Ostersunds has four wins and a defeat in the last five head to head matches here.
  • More than 2.5 goals were scored in three of those games at this ground.
  • The hosts are winless in their seven previous league games here.

Ostersunds vs Kalmar: Prediction

Ostersunds and Falkenbergs are the only two sides that have not won a home match this season. The home team has lost five of their seven games and the rest of them were drawn. Also, Kalmar is unbeaten in their two previous matches on the road. But the head to head stats gives the upper hand to Ostersunds. So I think we can see a draw since there is nothing much to separate them.

Both of them found the target in all three previous head to head games. Ostersunds has given away almost 66% of the goals they conceded in total at this ground. The visitors are also known for their shabby defense. So I am backing the match to draw with goals at both ends of the field.
