Sirius have performed better than Östersunds FK so far this season, but every game starts at 0-0. Here's all you need to know about the upcoming game:

It’s a hectic schedule for the away team, as they were in action only three days ago in the Svenska Cupen. That game was also an away game, at Nykoping. It will be interesting to see if they are fully ready and rested for this match, and/or if some changes in the lineup is necessary.

7-8-6 (wins/draws/losses). These are the numbers for Östersunds FK when playing away games on grass, which is not the surface they have on their own home stadium (which has artifical turf). Their goal statistics from those 21 matches are 22-27 (scored/conceded).

Sirius form and stats

Sirius, who have the fewest clean sheets (0) at home in Allsvenskan, have played 10 Allsvenskan games at their own stadium so far this season, resulting in 5-3-2 (wins-draws-losses). Sirius are on a three game winning streak in their home games.

A good away victory last time out for Sirius, who won 2-1 against Norrköping (placed 3rd). Heartbreak before that as Sirius lost 1-2 at Örebro's place.

The hosts are favourites to win this game, with an estimated chance of about 55-60% of that outcome. Earlier Sirius matches with similar probabilities have ended with one win, zero draws and zero defeats (from one game).

Sirius can score goals in their home matches. After 10 league matches they have found the net 23 times. Sirius are struggling defensively, conceding on average more than two goals per home game (20 from 10 played).

Östersunds FK form and stats

As the visiting team in Allsvenskan matches, Östersunds FK, who have the fewest conceded goals (8) away in Allsvenskan, have produced an overall stat of 5-5-1 so far. The away team travel with confidence. Not since the Hammarby game have they lost an away game, meaning Östersunds FK has taken points from ten away matches in a row.

Two travels in a row for Östersunds, whose manager A. Azrafshan could celebrate last time after the Svenska Cupen win against Nykoping. The game before that, in the Allsvenskan, was lost at home, a 1-2 defeat against AIK.

A crazy, crazy match with lots of goals last time out for Östersunds FK, as mentioned above. 6 goals in that one, will this match be as much fun?

As mentioned above, the odds for this match puts the home team as favourites. Perhaps this eases the pressure on the away team, who are capable of producing an upset here on a good day. Looking at earlier matches with similar odds and Östersunds FK playing away, we found four games. Results were two away wins, one draw and one home win.

Östersunds FK have scored 11 goals on their travels this season, from 11 away games in the league. They concede less than a goal on average per away game (8 so far).
