Draw specialists Ostersunds face a tricky home test this weekend, against third-placed Elfsborg. Can they finally end their six-match winless run, or will Jimmy Thelin's side come up clutch with an important away victory here?

They haven't been perfect so far this season, yet are just four points adrift of leaders Malmo. Any opportunity to apply further pressure on the top two would be appreciated, especially considering Norrkoping's recent woes.

That will be easier said than done though, despite having a stronger side on paper. Why exactly is that? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Ostersunds vs Elfsborg Betting Tips

After 13 Allsvenskan fixtures, Ostersunds have drawn six (46%) and rooted in 14th place – also known as the division's relegation play-off berth.

Their struggles are self-inflicted and under new management with Amir Azrafshan, understandably keen to make up for lost time. Already being 12 points off the top three sides at this stage of the campaign is never a good look.

It ultimately cost 37-year-old Englishman Ian Burchnall his job last month. But Amir, who turns 33 on August 17, is still searching for a first victory with Ostersunds.

In six matches, he's seen them lose, score and concede last-gasp equalisers – experiencing a whirlwind of emotions along the way. Is this weekend finally one where his new side reigns supreme or will recent history repeat itself, dropping more points?

Elfsborg are likely to miss both captain Sivert Heltne Nilsen in central midfield and goalscoring winger Jesper Karlsson on Sunday. Both were replaced during the second-half of their 2-1 away win over AIK on Thursday with respective injuries.

Per Frick will be expected to lead by example, after scoring two and creating another in his last two appearances. Simon Olsson enjoyed his best display of 2020 on Thursday, so watch how the visitors perform without some key personnel.

Ostersunds vs Elfsborg Correct Score Predictions

Initially, I leaned towards a narrow Elfsborg win. However, their H2H record speaks for itself (three wins each, three draws) and I'm instead predicting a gritty draw.
