Osters vs Assyriska by 20legend
Oster produced a very strong performance in their first game of the season after beating Ängelholms (1-4). After the former coach Andreas Thomsson left the club before Christmas, the new manager Roberth Björnesjö is getting a lot of credit for his philosophy and his work with the players during the winter. He stands for a more direct and consequent way of playing than their former coach did.
It is expected for Oster to start with the same lineup that they used in their first game this season. They are also taking the same squad as in the first game Joakim Lindner is expected to return soon, but will not be able to play this game.
Assyriska got a tough start of the season as they lost to Hammarby (0-1) in 93rd minute. They also got Linus Malmborg shown off. They have also lost their captain Stefan Batan before this season to the same team; Hammarby. Their strongest part within the team is the midfield and Oster should concentrate on winning this battle in order to get the upper hand. Assyriska’s 4-3-3 formation will also challenge the defense of Oster as they have a lot of speed. With Linus Malmborg out, it will be a question on who will take his place as the central-back.
Oster was very impressive in their first round, while Assyriska was both unlucky and under the expected level in their match. These matches are usually close battles with few goals involved, but that could change tonight. Oster’s new style of playing has truly given results and it could seem like they have another momentum this season. However, this is only the second league game and a lot of things could change. However, I still see Oster to impress their home fans and take the victory here. Assyriska will find it difficult to take down this team, and they are also forced to make changes in their backline, which is never a great thing. I can see Oster winning here, and I will pick them to score in both halves.
