Varbergs vs Orgryte (By: Iniestaone)
So the new Swedish football season is finally upon us and I'll be putting my main focus on that this year on Betshoot. To start with, I'm backing Örgryte to at least take one point away vs Varberg.
Varberg has a completely new team with practically every position (including the bench) containing a new player, except for a few who stayed after last season. Its hard to make something out of their pre season, they did a solid cup run where they had two narrow losses to Gothenburg and Öster and defeated Sirius at home.
Örgryte's pre season was based on training matches and they managed to keep their losses tight, to Gothenburg and Elfsborg, while winning their home matches against lower or equal teams.
So lets talk manpower: Örgryte has a better squad on paper than Varberg, and much better fitted for Superettan. They are solid in the back and central midfield, and the attack often sparkles with Said and Aliev up front. Varberg has borrowed Bergqvist from Malmö FF and they have another player of definite Superettan quality in Altemark-Vanneryr, other than that their squad consists of unknown players who will make their debut on this level this season.
The weather in Varberg is very grey today, its been raining and snowing in all parts of Sweden lately and I can't see this being a beautifully played game. I predict a scoreline of 1-0 to Örgryte, the +0,5 handicap bet gives 1.53 right now which is of great value if you want to add it to a parlay.
