Brage: In fine shape (Recent Form: DLWWDL)
Brage are on 4th place in Swedish Superettan with 18 points (5 wins, 3 draws, 3 losses; goal difference 15:9). They have currently 7 points of advantage over 13th Halmstad (relegation play-off), whereas the distance to 3rd Norrby (promotion play-off) is 2 points at the moment. Therefore, it appears that Brage can challenge for the top 3 places. The team is in fine shape – 2 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss in last 5 league matches. Brage take on Orgryte on Tuesday in the next league fixture. Brage have collected 10 points in 5 home games to date (3 wins, 1 draw, 1 defeat; goal difference 6:2).
Orgryte: Three consecutive away defeats (Recent Form: WLLDDL)
Orgryte sit on 7th position in the standings with 15 points (4 wins, 3 draws, 4 defeats; goal difference 16:14). They are now 4 points ahead of the drop zone, whereas Orgryte are 5 points short of the third-placed Norrby (promotion play-off). So, it can go in either direction. Their recent form is poor – 1 win, 2 draws, 2 defeats in last 5 games in Superettan. Now it’s time for an away encounter. Orgryte have collected 6 points in 5 matches on the road (2 wins, 0 draws, 3 losses; goal difference 9:9). It’s worth noting that they’ve lost the last 3 away games.
THE BETTING VERDICT:
All in all, I think that hosts are favourites of this clash. Brage are higher in the table and are in better form lately than Orgryte. Besides, Orgryte disappoint in the recent time on the road so perhaps the home side may take advantage of the whole situation and get a positive result in front of their fans.
