MAIN PREDICTION: HOME WIN
Elfsborg are undefeated after three league games. Two draws and a win is a solid start for them. They have been especially solid at the back with their defense looking hard to break down. Manager Jimmy Thelin has worked hard on that and he has been helped by the return of defender Johan Larsson to the club.
Orebro are very much a midtable team this season as well. One win, a draw and a loss from three league games is a good start to the season but the goalless draw at home to Ostersunds last week was a disappointing result. Attacking midfielder Nahir Besara was unhappy at his team performance and called it “the most boring game of his life”. Orebro failed to create anything of note and they will need to improve if they are to beat better teams.
Elfsborg will be slight favorites in a game between two teams that can surprise any team on the league if they have a good day but were both can also be very disappointing at times.
SECOND PREDICTION: HILO – LOW
Orebro have only managed two goals in three league games and they have been goalless against both AIK Solna and Ostersunds. Elfsborg have kept a clean sheet twice in three league games and scored three goals themselves.
HEAD TO HEAD:
Three wins and two draws for Elfsborg in the last five league encounters with Orebro. Last year they won 4-2 at home.
