Osters IF V Eskilsminne IF. 3PM
Osters struggled in the opening weeks following their relegation to Sweden’s third tier but Thomas Askebrand’s are now looking far more solid and we’re backing them to continue their resurgence with three points in this weekend’s clash against Eskilsminne.
Last weekend’s 5-1 away win at Halmia could signal a turning point for a club that will be desperate to bounce back to the Superettan and the likes of Robin Stromberg and Freddy Soderberg boast more than enough quality to extend their unbeaten streak to four.
Osters should expect a difficult test against a side that has scored 10 times in six away games. However, Eskilsminne have also shipped 16 in that time and those defensive mishaps could come back to haunt Stefan Jansson’s side.
This could be a tight contest, but home advantage should give Osters the edge.

Huesca V Huracan Valencia. 6PM
Our second selection comes from the Segunda B play-off conclusion as Huesca look to complete the job as they welcome Huracan Valencia to the Estadio El Alcoraz.
The two clubs shared a 1-1 draw in last week’s first leg and you have to consider that as advantage to Luis Tevenet’s hosts. Huesca were brilliant in the regular season, topping Group 2 with 69 points and 61 goals from their 38 matches.
In fact, Huesca completed the regular season with an unbeaten home record, winning 14 of their 19 matches. Conversely, Huracan won just six times on the road in Group 3 and Toni Seligrant’s men could be in for a tough test here, despite the goals their team clearly boasts.
Both teams will be desperate to win this contest but we have to think the hosts will edge proceedings. Home win.

Denmark U21 V Sweden U21. 8PM
The Euro U21 Championships has reached the semi-final stage and it should be a thrilling last three matches, even without England in it. The headline comes from Portugal v Germany but this second semi-final still has all the makings of a classic.
Both Scandinavian sides have impressed in the Czech Republic but the Danes have been exceptional, pipping Germany to top spot in Group A. Jess Thorup’s side have formed a very solid unit together and must be quietly confident of going all the way by securing a shock title win.
Meanwhile, Sweden only just scraped through thanks to Simon Tibbling’s late equaliser against Portugal. Hakan Ericson’s side do boast some quality players up top, with the likes of John Guidetti and Isaac Thelin ready to cause problems but we’re still a little unsure about their defensive qualities.
This will be an intense and passionate encounter. Nevertheless, we think the Danes will just about edge it to book their place in Tuesday’s final.
