Örebro v BK Häcken
Last week this game ended 1-1, but don’t ask me how. Häcken was clearly the better team and should have grabbed the win quite easily. Örebro is one point ahead of Häcken but that doesn’t really show the quality in the squad since Häcken has a lot of great individuals.
Örebro still is without their captain Nordin Gerzic who is suspended. Also, they’ve sold central defender Brendan Hines Ike. Two big losses for the not so big squad.
Häcken will surely be a bit tired after the return leg against RB Leipzig. But still, they must do it better in Allsvenskan and will probably focus on that game.
I think this will be a fun game with a lot of chances. Häcken has a lot of goalscorers and prefers to attack. Örebro is pretty decent at home and with Besara and Igboananike they sure can score goals.

GIF Sundsvall v IFK Norrköping
This could be fun. GIF Sundsvall is one of the biggest surprises this season. Good football and good results. IFK Norrköping is in the title race, even if they lost last round to Malmö away.
The home side has lost Gall to Malmö and now they have the central midfield with Batanero and Ciercoles suspended. It will be interesting to see how the coach Cederbland solves that situation. Maybe some of the new Spanish signings?
IFK Norrköping is without Thorarinson who is suspended, other than that there is a full squad. Even if they lost last round, it still is heads high and great confidence in the squad.
With the central midfield out, I think GIF Sundsvall will be in trouble here. IFK Norrköping has a great squad and a good coach who really will go for it here to put pressure on AIK and Hammarby. I really do think the difference in quality will show here.
Asian Handicap Betting Recommendation: IFK Norrköping -0.50 at 1.930
IF Elfsborg v Östersund
A tricky game that really could go both ways. Östersund has been very good, even after they sold some quality players. Elfsborg has a good squad but hasn’t really found their right way.
Elfsborg still struggles and has three games in a row without scoring. The last two of them ended with 0-1-losses and now they really have to bounce back. Prodell should probably get a chance as a striker with Jebali moving back a bit.
Östersund grabbed the winner last round with 1-0 and once again Saman Ghoddos was the key to the goal. Question is if he still plays for Östersund since there are rumors around him every week. If he plays, Östersund will have a pretty good chance.
Ghoddos or not, this game should be a fun one. Both of them prefers the artificial grass and both of them prefers the attacking football. Elfsborg is under pressure and must attack, Östersund can play a little bit more relaxed. Goals at both ends should be a minimum.
