Djurgarden – Orebro
Djurgardens IF welcome struggling Orebro to the Tele2 Arena on Monday, as they seek to take another step towards regaining the Allsvenskan title they lost last year. While the Stockholm club stuttered just before the summer break, their visitors arrive on the back of four straight defeats and will be a long shot to leave with maximum points. Amongst the favourites for the title, 2019 champions Djurgarden have seen their fine start to the current season undermined by a sluggish run of form just before the break and in recent friendlies.
Djurgarden have been in good goalscoring form in mid-season friendlies and have a range of options to choose from in the final third, so can give their pursuit of a second title in three years a boost by winning on Monday. Even a month on the training ground may not prove enough to resolve Orebro’s defensive deficiencies, with their campaign perhaps more likely to recover when they hit some more winnable fixtures in the coming weeks.
Our prediction is for a home victory and over 2,5 goals.
