The Ostersunds vs. Galatasaray match will be played on Thursday, July 13, at the Jamtkraft Arena, Ostersund. This is the first leg of Europa League second qualifying phase. Both teams are starting the competition from this qualifying stage.


  • Ostersunds is in a stable form currently. They are undefeated in six straight league matches. We saw over 3.5 goals in two out of those last three games in the league.
  • Galatasaray finished the previous season with four straight victories and they also recorded two wins in two friendly matches they played this summer. They scored at least two goals in five out of those six games.


This will be the first meeting between these two clubs in European competitions.


Ostersunds is currently 6th on the Allsvenskan table with 23 points. After a bad start of the season, they stabilized their form and Ostersunds is performing very well at the moment. It seems they will fight for the place in European competitions again. However, this season they were very unlucky with the draw. Galatasaray is a financially strong club which is much stronger than Ostersunds, but Swedish team will certainly try to eliminate them. The first leg is vital - we believe that Ostersunds must win the match if they want to maintain their chances for cruising to the next phase relatively realistic.

Galatasaray wasn't happy with the outcome of the previous season, and they are undergoing significant changes during the summer. Nevertheless, they are a huge favorite against Ostersunds, and they will try to record a victory in the away match. The Turkish League didn't start yet, and a comfortable win against the Swedes would be an excellent way to start the new season.
