All IK Sirius v Östersunds FK match predictions, user poll and stats are shown below (plus the best game odds).
IK Sirius will want to continue from where they left off last time out with the 1-2 Allsvenskan victory over IFK Norrköping.
In that match, IK Sirius had 57% possession and 18 shots at goal with 9 on target. For IK Sirius, the goalscorers were Yukiya Sugita (38') and Mohammed Saeid (56'). On the other side, IFK Norrköping had 13 attempts at goal with 6 on target. Christoffer Nyman (37') scored for IFK Norrköping.
Blåsvart have not been the best at stopping their opponents recently, although they have also found ways to convert their own chances into goals. Analysis of their previous 6 games shows that Blåsvart have conceded in 6 of them as well as getting on the scoresheet in 5 of those games. That being said, we must now wait to see if that trend will be maintained in this game or not.
Heading into this contest, IK Sirius are unbeaten in their previous 4 league matches at home.
Östersunds FK will come into the match following on from a 2-4 Svenska Cupen win with the defeat of Nyköpings BIS in their most recent outing.
For Östersunds FK, the scorers were Nebiyou Perry (21'), Jerell Sellars (44'), Sam Mensiro (49') and Francis Jno-Baptiste (83'). Alp (79') was the scorer for Nyköpings BIS.
Throughout their six previous matches, Amir Azrafshan's Östersunds FK have turned their attacks into goals a total of 9 times thus giving them the goals per game average of 1.5.
Going into this contest, Östersunds FK are unbeaten in their previous 10 league matches away from home. Travelling very well.

Team News: IK Sirius
IK Sirius manager Henrik Rydström will be grateful to have no fitness concerns at all ahead of this game with a fully healthy group to pick from.
Team News: Östersunds FK
In an otherwise available squad, there is just the one fitness problem for the Östersunds FK manager Amir Azrafshan to be concerned with. Rewan Amin (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be playing here.
We believe that IK Sirius will most probably score a couple of goals when they meet Östersunds FK, who might well find it difficult scoring a goal of their own.
We’re therefore anticipating a controlled 2-0 win for IK Sirius come full-time.
