Ostersunds vs Bilbao by Danlaw

Ostersunds
VS
Bilbao
Ostersund have been in terrific form at home right from the Europa league qualification matches and the play off. They have now won two matches away and home and should look forward to this match with Bilbao with some confidence and expectations as Bilbao have not done too well so far, losing their last Europa league match to Zorya Lugansk after drawing away to Herta Berlin, teams Ostersund took maximum points from.

 

Ostersund quite rely on their compact defence to get results and they have kept four consecutive clean sheet in all competitions as well as keeping clean sheets in their two Europa games so far., but at home, it is their astro turf that help them the most as most teams come ill-prepared to play on it.

 

Ostersund have only lost once in their last six matches in all competitions while Bilbao have lost four times in their last six. Ostersunds come to this game at the back of an easy victory against Orebro in the league, Bilbao had a hard fought victory against Seville and coupled with the fact that they had to travel for this match, their players might not be in the best of physical conditions. I expect Ostersund to at least get a point from this game.

 

All the games in this group have so far ended under 2.5 goals. I expect this to be similar. I also expect Ostersunds not to lose. So my tip is therefore Home win or draw and under 3.5 which is available on Marathonbet at 2.43pin

Bilbao will win this game..it is a must win game for them if they want to advance...nothing will help to Ostersund,no cold weather nor artificial grass..If they play seriously as I expect Ostersunds have no chances here.

Jake, you can't compare Ostersunds to Besiktas. Besiktas is one of the best teams in Europe at the moment and bookies still over value them a game after game. So far Besiktas has trashed Napoli, Benfica, FC Porto, Leipzig and Monaco. There is no way Monaco should had been favorites yesterday. Monaco did try to win, but Besiktas is a way better team at the moment.

Ostersunds is just a team that may win or lose, but you can't really tell.

A must win doesn't mean that you will win
Qarabag vs ATM it was a must win for ATM what didn't happen
Aron40 is controversial too much

Please don't talk about Monaco.. How can home stadium be half empty for such important game vs Besiktas?? This shows you the mentality of the fans, no hope even before kick off.
