After a painful near-miss in Denmark, Kev’s taking us to Sweden for a game he hopes won’t be too exciting.
Attacks to misfire
Trelleborgs v Osters
Tuesday 31 August, 18:00
We started the week with a Danish disaster, as our boys Hvidovre led twice against Hobro last night, only to be denied the three points by an 89th-minute equaliser in a 2-2 draw. It’s a tough way to start the week, but perhaps some of you traded out from a strong position.
We’ll make the short leap to Sweden, because Trellebrogs are up against Osters tonight in the second-tier Superettan.
Trelleborgs finished a disappointing 13th at this level last term, but they avoided the drop, and are making a better fist of things this time around. With 17 of their 30 league matches played, they are just seven points off top spot. Former Trelleborgs player and assistant coach Kristian Haynes has led the club to just four league defeats this term, despite having the worst attacking record in the top eight.
Osters are only a couple of points above the relegation zone, and they have scored just 12 goals in 17 matches. The team that finished fourth last term is really struggling, and has failed to score in four of the last six league games. They have won just two of the last 11 league outings, and they’ve taken just a solitary point from their last five away matches.
If we use the Sportsbook’s Bet Builder (see offer below) to combine a Trelleborgs/Draw Double Chance bet with an Under 2.5 Goals bet, we get a combined price of 1.9420/21. That covers the 0-0, the 1-1 and 1-0 and 2-0 victories for the hosts. Nine of Osters’ last ten league games have stayed under the 2.5 goals line, as have seven of Trelleborgs’ last ten.
