Ostersunds vs Kalmar
Date: Sunday, 12 August 2018
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK
Venue: Jamtkraft Arena (Ostersunds).
In the 17th round of Swedish Allsvenskan, Ostersunds are going to host Kalmar on Sunday afternoon.
Although they had a poor start of the season, the hosts managed to improve their form significantly and now they are sitting on the 4th place. They haven’t lost in the last nine rounds in Allsvenskan and that streak propelled them to the title race.
Saman Ghoddos and the lads are just six points behind AIK and Hammarby and if they continue in the same fashion, we can count on Ostersunds to challenge the title. Home side lost three tomes at their ground so far, however they tied four straight victories in front of their fans.
Kalmar are positioned in the middle of the table and they don’t have too many chances to challenge the place in Europa League next season. They are in a variable form, but in the last round Nanne Bergstrand’s side managed to break their negative run of three defeats.
The visitors have been involved in pretty tight clashes this season and although they haven’t scored too many goals, their defence is fairly hard to crack. When it comes to playing away from home, Kalmar managed to get back with a win three times.
Ostersunds vs Kalmar: Head-to-head
The hosting team has been more successful in their head to head clashes and the visitors managed to snatch a win just once back in 2008.
In their encounters, the crowd is usually able to see two to three goals per match.
Ostersunds vs Kalmar: Prediction
Home side is in a great form and they should be able to continue their winning streak. Potential three points from this one would mean them a lot in the title race and we should expect them to book a victory in this clash.
As both sides are doing well in the back, we shouldn’t expect too much activity from the strikers. We expect a tight match in terms of total goals scored and this one should stay under 2.5 margin.
