Our Örebro SK v Halmstads BK tips, poll and stats can be seen in full below - as well as up-to-date odds.
Örebro SK will be looking to improve on their last outing here following the 0-3 Allsvenskan losing effort in their last game against IFK Norrköping.
In that game, Örebro SK managed 40% possession and 10 attempts on goal with 3 on target. At the other end, IFK Norrköping got 24 attempts on goal with 11 of them on target. Samuel Adegbenro (45', 65') and Carl Björk (63') scored for IFK Norrköping.
An interesting characteristic of recent Örebro SK games is the high number of scores with a nil in them.
From their previous 6 matches leading up to this one, in 5 of them a wager on both teams scoring would've been a loser.
Taking a look at their past results, Örebro SK:
- have not registered a win against Halmstads BK in their previous 5 league games.
- are without a win at home for the past 2 league matches.

The strike force from Halmstads BK have failed to get amongst the goals over their last six encounters, recording the disappointing return of only 4.

Team News: Örebro SK
There is just one fitness concern for the Örebro SK manager Axel Kjäll to be concerned about thanks to an almost full-strength group of players. Rasmus Karjalainen (Neck Injury) will miss out.
Team News: Halmstads BK
Halmstad boss Magnus Haglund has a number of players out of action. Jonathan Svedberg (Unknown Injury) and Viktor Ljung (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are those who can’t be considered.
We’re inclined to think that Halmstads BK and Örebro SK could end up without much reward for their efforts here.
We’ll see, but this could easily end up all-square. Therefore, we predict a tight encounter, finishing with a 0-0 draw after 90 minutes.
