Oestersunds FK vs Arsenal Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Minnows Ostersunds welcome Arsenal at the Jamtkraft Arena on Thursday afternoon for the first leg of their Europa League round of 32 tie. Ostersunds have finished 2nd in the group J table, although they were tied on eleven points with the eventual group winners Athletic Bilbao. Arsenal, on the other hand, have won their Europa League group H despite the fact they have failed to win their last two fixtures. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview. Feel free to visit our Bet of the day page to check our best daily tips.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Arsenal are hot favourites to win here, but Ostersunds proved to be a tough nut to crack on home soil over the past seven months. The Swedes have lost just once in their last 15 home games across all competitions and have scored at least once in 12 of these. On the flip side, Arsenal have struggled for form of late and they have big problems in the Premier League at the moment, so I don’t expect them to focus on this trip.

Oestersunds FK Preview

Ostersunds’ form over the past four months have been a complete mixed bag with four wins, four draws and two defeats in their last ten games across all competitions. Their domestic campaign ended back in November 2017, with Ostersunds finishing just 5th in the standings. However, the Swedes enter the fray on the back of a comfortable 3-0 home win against Trelleborgs in the Svenska Cupen. In addition, Ostersunds have been in excellent throughout their Europa League group stage campaign, having lost just once in six fixtures. At home, Ostersunds are undefeated in six fixtures while winning five. During this run, they managed to beat the Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin and to hold Athletic Bilbao to a 2-2 draw. Overall, Ostersunds have lost just once in their last 20 home games across all competitions and are currently on an eleven-game unbeaten streak. Ostersunds are the first Swedish team to qualify for the knockout phase of the Europa League, as AIK, Elfsborg, Helsingborg and Malmo have all failed to go through the group stage.

Oestersunds FK Team News

There are no fresh injury concerns for Ostersunds ahead of this game.

Arsenal Preview

Arsenal, on the other hand, have endured a disappointing run of form over the two months, having won just three of their last ten games across all competitions. They managed a comfortable 5-1 home victory against Everton in the Premier League a fortnight ago, but succumbed to a narrow 1-0 away loss at Tottenham at the weekend. Regarding their Europa League campaign, Arsenal have topped their group H table with 13 points to their name, four points clear of the second-placed Crvena Zvezda. Away from home, the Gunners have won two Europa League games prior to their 1-0 defeat at FC Cologne in their most recent European trip. This was actually Arsenal’s debut in the Europa League, as their previous European campaign outside the Champions League was the 1999/2000 UEFA Cup. They should feel confident ahead of this clash as their head-to-head record against Swedish teams read three wins and a draw in four encounters. The interesting fact is that in each season that the Gunners have faced a Swedish club they have gone on to reach a European final.

Arsenal Team News

Aaron Ramsey is a doubt, but Santiago Cazorla is still missing through an ACL injury. The good news is that Gedion Zelalem is back in training following his cruciate ligament injury.
