KICKOFF: 19:20 CET / 18.07.2014
This will be the first match in the 16. Round of the second league of Sweden „Superettan”. After the 3-week break Östersunds and Sundsvall will meet in the Jämtkraft Arena. The last meeting between them was in the first half of the season, to be exact, the last match on 28.6.2014. Sundsvall could win this by 2-0 at home.
They are sitting on the eight place of the table with 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses (goals 19:19). This seems to be quite good for a team who promoted 1 year ago. The last two matches were lost: 2-0 against Sundsvall as already mentioned and 1-2 against Ängelholm, a mid-table team. Östersunds seemed to be really good at home so far as they were unbeaten in 4 matches at home winning 3 of them but with the loss against a not very strong team their home strength seems to be shattered. For the players and the moral in this team this isn’t good at all, because home matches were always a good chance to win and get 3 points but now it seems that they lost their believe in this.
They couldn’t manage to promote last season with failing in the playoff matches. They finished on the third place in the league. The last years were really a little disappointing as they relegated 2 times. 2007 they promoted into the “Allvenskan” with finishing on the third place. 1 year later they got relegated and 2011 they promoted again. 2012 they relegated again with finishing on the 15. place of the table. In the last season they had the chance to promote again as already mentioned but they didn’t use that chance. Now they are placed on the second place of the league behind Ljungskile who have the same points. This round will be a hard one for them as they meet up with Sirius, who won against them last round before the break. So this might be a good opportunity to climp up to the top of the table and I think Sundsvall don’t want to miss it. Their form isn’t bad as well because their last 2 matches were won, 2-0 over Östersunds and 1-2 against Landskrona 1-2 away. Furthermore this team is one of the best teams in defense conceding only 14 goals by now (second best). Their record of 10-1-4 shooting 28 goals isn’t bad too. Moreover Sundsvall is good at away games too. They are ranked fourth at the away table in Superettan.
Summing it up Sundsvall has a good chance to win this match. Their H2H statistics are also in favour for them with winning 3 out of 4 and keeping a clean sheet in these. The guests will also play with extra motivation as they already bet them in the last match of course they want to promote this year. The third place is only 2 points away so a loss would be critical for them and they don’t want to risk this. I think they will play with a defensive tactic as a draw wouldn’t be too bad but I expect the away win as Sundsvall showed a good form in their last matches.
