Oerebro vs Halmstads BK Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

This Friday evening (18:00) fixture will have important implications on the relegation battle in Allsvenskan. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Örebro will aim to bounce back after suffering a 3-0 loss to Östersunds in their last game. They were three down in just 25 minutes in their last match and despite creating numerous chances after this the tie was beyond them. Halmstad face a must win situation here as a 2-1 loss to Göteborg last time out means they are bottom of the table. Things had seemed hopeful after a Pontus Silfver penalty gave them the lead but they conceded in the 53rd minute and then again in the 89th to suffer a heartbreaking loss. The reverse fixture came on May 20th and on that occasion, it ended in a goalless draw. It was the third straight head-to-head draw between these two and in the last five the home team has not managed a victory.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Örebro are a strong side up against poor travellers so the home win makes the most sense but given their lack of motivation and that the visitors must win I don’t think the match markets offer much appeal. Goals seem the order of the day here but bookmakers have got the main markets (over 2.5 goals, both teams to score) covered so try attacking this elsewhere. Halmstad must come at out attacking so taking them to go over 1.5 team goals makes sense but then that should open thinks up for Örebro and I like backing them to go over 2.5 goals.

Over 2.5 Örebro goals

Over 1.5 Halmstad goals

Oerebro saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played

Halmstads BK saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Oerebro Preview

It has been a solid if unspectacular season for Örebro who sit in ninth place and have no worries about the threat of relegation but have not touched the race for Europe. Their form sums up that mid-table feel with three victories and three defeats from their last six. At home, they rank in the top third for results with seven victories, two draws and four defeats from their 13 played so far. A problem has been their defence with only more side (Sirius) shipping more goals in front of their own fans this season. It is not just at home that the defence has been an issue as their 49 goals conceded is the second worst defensive record in Allsvenskan. They are a good team to watch for the neutral as they average 3.19 goals per fixture and 20 of their 27 played have gone over the 2.5 goal margin

Oerebro Team News

Alfred Ajdarevic (thigh) is unlikely to feature again this season.

Halmstads BK Preview

This is a must win game for Halmstad who sit bottom of the table and with three games to play are eight points from the relegation play-off. In their favour is that none of these three that remain are against side in the top-half. On the road, they have not managed a victory all season and in fact you must go back to October 2014 for their last top flight league success. The nine goals netted on their travels is the lowest amount in the division. Over a third of their league goals this season have come in the opening thirty minutes of the game. The average time of the first goal that they concede is the 41st minute.

Halmstads BK Team News

Oscar Petersson (toe) is a doubt while Alexander Arvidsson and Johan Oremo (knee) are both ruled out.
