Under new manager Ian Burchnall, Ostersunds have continued to present headaches for the bigger names of the Swedish top flight, but their last three league games have all ended in defeat. In a game the visitors will consider “must-win”, Betway’s odds of 5/4 for Malmo to take all three points is a tempting offer. Perhaps the Ostersunds vs Malmo best odds of the evening are on show at Betfair, who have 13/5 that Malmo will win in a game which features more than 2.5 goals. Taking that to its logical conclusion, you can find longer odds at LeoVegas by betting on a 2-1 win for the visitors and benefiting from a generous offer of 15/2 against that happening. Worth knowing before you place this bet is the fact that OFK have lost their last three league games by that exact score.

Ostersunds vs Malmo Betting Tips: Form Guide

Burchnall Seeks Bounceback From His Squad

While Graham Potter has hit the ground running in his new job at Swansea, the manager who took over from him has had the unenviable task of following on from a coach with unconventional methods who has changed the way all of Sweden views the club. Burchnall, who never played professionally, doesn’t fit the profile of a typical manager, but OFK is not a “typical” club. With Burchnall’s arrival back in June, many will have wondered whether Potter’s magic could be replicated. A run of six games without defeat indicated that it could, but in recent outings the minnow club has experienced repeated, marginal disappointments.

A trip to IFK Goteborg, former European giants, saw the new coach experience his first defeat in the Ostersunds hot-seat. Frustratingly, his side had pulled their way back into the match shortly after going behind, but a goal in first-half injury-time was enough to see the hosts take all three points. After a trip to Gute in the Svenska Cupen ended in a 5-2 win, it was back to league duties. When midfielder Curtis Edwards put the Yellow and Black ahead against GIF Sundsvall on the stroke of half time, things were really looking up – until two goals in the last twelve minutes for the visitors.

Most recently, OFK made an away trip to face Orebro. After trailing at half-time, the visitors got back in it through Petterson shortly after half-time. However, as has become habitual, Burchnall’s side conceded a winner that took their run in the league to 0 points from a possible nine. None of this will make them feel like they can overturn Ostersunds vs Malmo betting tips for today when they face a nuggety Malmo side.

Himmelsblatt Hitting Form At The Right Time

Malmo’s Champions League campaign ended early, but their Europa League season is just getting started – knocking Midtjylland out in the playoff secured them a place in the groups and, given Ostersunds’ odyssey last season, who knows what a Swedish side could do this time around? Certainly, if Malmo can carry their league form into the European arena with them, they’ll be looking fine. The last six games at domestic level have seen them win six in a row, and do so while scoring plenty of goals . The most recent outing, at Brommapojkarna, ended 3-0 and came hard on the heels of a 5-0 home slaughtering of Sirius.

Like their opponents today, Malmo replaced their manager over the season hiatus in June, with Uwe Rosler taking over from the sacked Magnus Pehrsson while Malmo were 10th in the Allsvenskan table. In the sixteen competitive games since his installation, Rosler’s Malmo are yet to lose, and the high pressing approach they have adopted has led to some high scores. At present, they trail league leaders AIK by eleven points – but with thirty left to play for, they cannot be considered out of the running for the tag of champions.

One player who will draw plenty of focus in Ostersunds vs Malmo match previews is new arrival Romain Gall. The American national signed from GIF Sundvall in mid-season and is one of the league’s leading scorers, along with teammate Markus Rosenberg. As a player cherry-picked by Rosler to suit the style Malmo now play, he’s going to be watched closely here.

Ostersunds vs Malmo Preview: Recent Meetings

These sides have met once already this season, in the middle of July when both were under very new management. The game took place at Malmo’s Swedbank Stadion, and ended with honours even. Malmo took the lead on 33 minutes when top scorer Markus Rosenberg found the opening goal. It was a lead they would not be able to ad to, and eventually an equaliser materialised when visiting striker Saman Ghoddos beat Johan Dahlin.

Their last meeting at the Jamtkraft Arena also ended in a draw, with Malmo leading twice over the course of the 90 minutes but the home side finding equalising goals just when they needed them. With the game hanging in the balance, a 90th-minute goal by Ken Sema – now of Watford – secured a point for OFK.

Ostersunds vs Malmo Prediction: Narrow Away Win

With both teams still having plenty to play for, this encounter is set to be keenly contested and neither side will want to deal with the repercussions of a defeat. For Malmo, it would be a serious setback in their campaign to qualify for the Champions League and to their outside hopes of winning the league. For Ostersunds it would be a fourth consecutive defeat in the league, and see their own European dreams fall a little further out of focus. As such, a draw would not be the worst result in the world for either side.

That may be the case, but if we’re being more realistic, the hosts have lost their last three league games while Malmo have won theirs – and more. While Burchnall’s men have certainly not become a bad side over the last few games, it is their opponents that have all the momentum. For our Ostersunds vs Malmo prediction, we can’t help but give Malmo the nod here. It won’t be as comfortable as some of their recent heavy Allsvenskan wins, but they’ll do enough here to keep their run going.
