During the Friday, the group play of Svenska Cupen 2018 starts with the match between Östersund and Trelleborg. The home team are in charge of the next European adventure, while the Swedish-born newcomers Trelleborg will be playing in front of the all-Swedish season.
I find good value in the home team, which will set up with the best possible team, to best prepare for next week’s match against Arsenal in the Europa League. Both teams have been training matches for the match. Östersund has met Sundsvall, where one lost 1-0, but it should be mentioned that the best team did not stand up. Trelleborg for their part, they have won two training matches. One against Värnamo, who won 3-1 and now last against the supposed top team Öster, crossed the match after 3-3.
The home team, after all, has a much better team and you want to get good self-confidence in the Arsenal match. The fact that it is a cup match is also an important factor. Ifjol won the Östersund Svenska Cup and that was why he joined the Europa League. As you missed the European League League matches in Allsvenskan, you can once again bet on taking the cup.
Unclear status of away team
Trelleborg is just as I mentioned newcomers in Allsvenskan after getting upset. They have made major changes in the game group and it is currently unclear where they stand. They also suffered a injury to star striker Salif Camara-Jönsson in the training match against Öster last week. There is also a certain question mark for the defensive, which in my eyes does not hold the Allsvensk class.
Obviously, Östersund is a big favorite for tomorrow’s match and the odds suggest that we are right outside. In fact, Östersund is in 1.35 to win the match, while Trelleborg stands at 9.00 (!) In odds to take home the match. I keep Östersund as a favorite and think that you win with at least two goals this evening’s match. During the last year the team was placed against each other, then it ended 4-1 to the Jämtlanders. There is a difference in class and Östersund, who is in charge of Europe’s next week, is later in the pre-season.
Östersund -1.5 is clicked at 1.91 in odds. Should we say 3-0 after full time? Good luck at your back!
Game tips: Östersund -1.5
My game tip is today Östersund – 1.5. Here are a few reasons why I think it’s a good game:

There is clear class difference between the layers on the paper
Östersund learn to go full in the cup because they are their only chance to continue playing Europe Games this season
Trelleborg has his worst assassin, Salif Camara-Jönsson injured
The team stood against each other byjol – then the meeting ended 4-1 to Östersund.
