Göteborg – Örebro
IFK Göteborg welcomes Örebro in a match from the 16th round of the Swedish Allsvenskan.
Right now Göteborg are at 11th place in the Allsvenskan standings with 18 points won so far. But we should note that Göteborg have played just 14 games since the start of the new season, so they still have two matches in hand compared to some other teams.
So far they have won 4 of their 14 games in the league. Göteborg lost in four cases and drew 6 times. They have scored 19 goals, conceding 17 times in the process.
As for Örebro, they are currently 10th in the league standings with 21 points won – three more than their next opponent. But they have also played one game more than them.
In terms of current form, Örebro are doing better. Much better. They won four of their last five matches, including the last one against… Göteborg.
That’s right – these two teams met in the last round of the league and Örebro won with 4-2. Nahir Besara scored a hattrick for the winning team, while Nordin Gerzid added a goal for the win. For Göteborg it was Wiklander and Salomonsson who scored. But their goals were not enough for something more in the match.
Before that Örebro lost against Hammarby, after winning three times in a row.
Göteborg on the other hand have won just one of their last five matches – against Jönköpings Södra away from home. In the other four they lost twice and drew also twice.
We could say that this is going to be a game between two teams with a pretty much similar ability. They are very close to each other in the league standings, which is a hint that we should expect a really competitive clash. But who’s going to win?
