Match preview

2021 Swedish Allsvenskan round 9, Djurgardens will play against with Orebro home. Amongst the favourites for the title, 2019 champions Djurgarden have seen their fine start to the current season undermined by a sluggish run of form just before the break and in recent friendlies. The Blaranderna picked up only two points from their last two league outings to sit second in the early standings - still just three points behind leaders Malmo, with a game in hand. In a pair of warm-up games before the action recommences, a home defeat to Kalmar was followed by a 2-2 draw with Degerfors, so joint coaches Kim Bergstrand and Thomas Lagerlof will want to quickly kick-start their campaign when the Allsvenskan returns. Bergstrand has clung onto his position despite some controversial comments bringing his tenure into serious question in the spring, and will hope that a team containing signings including on-loan goalkeeper Aleksandr Vasyutin, Finland midfielder Rasmus Schuller and former Swansea forward Joel Asoro can stay in the hunt for honours heading into the autumn. A relatively radical pre-season overhaul - with several regulars also heading for the exit - may have thrown up some difficulties for Djurgarden, but they will certainly prove a tough task to overcome for modest Orebro on Monday. Recent clashes between the two clubs have resulted in a 14-2 aggregate score for the Stockholm side, who have won four of their five encounters since 2019. Orebro had made an underwhelming start to the season before its recent interval, as they sit in the relegation zone, adrift of their seventh-placed finish in the 2020 campaign. With only five goals in their opening eight games - plus conceding a league-high 16 at the other end - it is clear that untested manager Vitor Gazimba has his work cut out to emulate last year's lofty finish.

After moving to Norway to take up a role as academy manager at Stromsgodset in 2014, the Portuguese coach later joined OSK as assistant manager. Now promoted to the top job, Gazimba has brought in players such as ex-Olympiacos goalkeeper Bobby Allain and former Djurgarden midfielder Kevin Walker - who featured on the Swedish version of 'Pop Idol' in 2013 - but it remains to be seen what impact they will have. On-loan striker Deniz Hummet has divided opinion due to his lack of penalty box potency, but scored in Orebro's final fixture before the month-long hiatus - a 2-1 loss to Malmo - and will hope to hit the ground running again in the Swedish capital this week.

Zetterstrom; Kack, Ekdal, Lofgren, Witry; Findell, Eriksson, Schuller; Barkroth, Holmberg, Chilufya
