Skovde v Ostersund
This is one of the more one-sided Superettan matches that could be taking place this week, with the two sides at opposite ends of the table.
Skovde come into this on the back of a goalless draw at home to mid-table Osters in their most recent outing, last week. They have lost just one of their last seven matches in the Swedish second-tier and the hosts will be hoping to continue that form as they seek promotion to the Allsvenskan.
Under the management of Tobias Linderoth, they have a defensive and low-scoring style of play that has seen them cautiously approach the top end of the table.
They now face an Ostersund side that were relegated from the top-flight last season. The visitors have had several off-field issues and financial issues in recent years and their relegation last year was a long time coming.
This time around, in their first season following that demotion in leagues, they have endured another painful campaign, with just two victories in their opening 18 matches so far this season.
They are six points adrift of the relegation playoff places and seven off outright safety. Back-to-back relegations seems inevitable for the team that are, categorically, the worst in the league.
Given that Skovde are in their own run of good form, combined with the fact they have a motivation to potentially break into the top three and the Superettan playoff place. This should be a very comfortable home win.
Brommapojkarna v AFC Eskilstuna
This should be an absolute thriller between two of the highest scoring teams in the Swedish Superettan. The two sides have scored a combined 74 goals so far this season, after just 18 matches. Only two teams have scored more goals than AFC Eskilstuna so far this season and one of those is Brommapojkarna.
The home team come into this on the back of some excellent form, too. Brommapojkarna’s 1-0 win away at struggling Vasteras last weekend made it back-to-back victories and three wins in their last four matches. The hosts are now unbeaten in their last six games… a run that stretches back to a defeat to their upcoming opponents AFC Eskilstuna.
Brommapojkarna begin this weekend’s round of fixtures sitting in the top three and in the promotion playoff place. They are just a point behind Brage in the top two and the automatic promotion places.
AFC Eskilstuna started the season extremely impressively with four successive victories but have since been fairly average as they have sunk into the middle-of-the-table. The visitors are winless in their last four matches, too.
Their most recent outing was a 2-0 defeat at home to J-Sodra, in which they had Victor Fors sent off on the stroke of half-time, with the scores still level. They will, consequently, be without Fors for this game.
Christer Mattiasson, of Brommapojkarna, and AFC Eskilstuna’s boss Jawad Al Jebouri have got their sides playing a progressive and entertaining style of football, reflected in the underlying data, with both sides averaging over 1.5 expected goals per game.
Brommapojkarna, especially with their form, home advantage and recent troubles of the visitors, should be favourites for this likely-to-be high-scoring clash.
