IFK Gothenburg vs Oestersunds FK Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Sunday afternoon (14:00) fixture features two sides in the top-half of the Swedish league table.  Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Göteborg come into the game on the back of two successive victories with their last match seeing them come out on top 2-1 at Halmstad.  August Erlingmark (two in two) and Mikael Boman (two in two) got the goals that enabled them to take all three points. Östersunds won their last league game 3-0 at home to Örebro thanks to a Johan Bertilsson brace and a goal from Frank Arhin.  On Thursday, they played Bilbao in the Europa League in a game that finished 2-2 with goals from Alhaji Gero and Curtis Edwards enabling them to secure a point though it could have been all three as they conceded in the 89th minute. The reverse fixture between the pair came in April and it ended 1-1 with Curtis Edwards having given Östersunds the lead only for Göteborg to rescue a point thanks to a 93rd minute Emil Salomonsson penalty.

Betting Tips and Predictions

It is hard to be backing either team with much confidence here given that the home side have nothing to play for and the visitors only have an outside chance of qualifying for the Europa League while also being involved in the group stages of that tournament.  I would recommend avoiding the match markets than for your bets. Under 2.5 goals has happened in all three of their previous meetings and while both teams know how to find the back of the net and that the home side have 14 of 27 under this margin then it makes sense to back it at these prices. Both teams to score which have paid in just two of the last seven for the visitors and one of the last three for the hosts and again I think bookmakers might have made an error here in pushing NO out.

IFK Gothenburg Preview

It is six points from their last two games from Göteborg who prior to that had taken two points from the five matches before that. They are in seventh place and cannot make Europe this season but will be hoping to finish as high as possible. At home, they have drawn four of their last eight and have drawn a remarkable eight of 13 this season in front of their own fans. Eight of their last nine at their own ground have seen both teams find the back of the net. 14 of their 27 league fixtures this season have been level going into the half-time break. Not one of their Allsvenskan games this campaign has finished goalless while 17 of them have featured two or three goals.

IFK Gothenburg Team News

Benjamin Yapi Zalo (hamstring) is rated doubtful.

Oestersunds FK Preview

In the league, it is now just one defeat in seven for Östersunds though they have taken just five points from a possible 12 on offer from their last four. Going into this weekend they sat five behind the side in third with three matches to play. On the road, they have lost just one of their last five Allsvenskan ties but that loss did come last time out at Kalmar. Only Elfsborg away matches have produced more goals than the 43 netted in their 13 (averaging over three per game). Around 56% of their goals have come in the second-half with 28% of them coming in the final 15 minutes. The average time of their first goal conceded is the 46th minute overall but just the 39th minute on the road.

Oestersunds FK Team News

Ronald Mukiibi (foot) and Saman Ghoddos (back) are rated doubtful.
