Gefle vs Falkenberg:
Date: Saturday, July 9, 2016
Kick-Off: 15:00 UK
Venue: Gavlevallen (Gavle).
It is a battle between two teams at the rock bottom of the Swedish Allsvenskan table when Gefle host Falkenberg at the Gavlevallen Arena on Sunday afternoon.
Gefle are reeling at 15th in the position in the standings with just 5 points from their 12 matches so far. A win against GIF Sundsvall on the match day 2 is the only positive of their league campaign so far and they had tasted defeats in 9 of the 12 games in this season so far. They have also failed to win a single game at home in this current campaign, drawing 2 and losing 4 of the 6 matches so far. They are also coming on the back of three straight home defeats 11 goals and are on a 7 match losing streak on all venues in Allsvenskan.
Falkenberg are also on a similar run like Gefle and are last in the standings with 4 points. A win against Norrkoeping and a draw with Joenkoepings Soedra are the only points they gained in 12 games so far this season. They had also lost in 10 of the 12 matches so far this season and must recover fast enough if they are to save from relegation this season. Falkenberg’s away record so far this season is 1 draw and 4 losses from 5 matches.

Gefle vs Falkenberg: Predictions
These two sides are struggling at the foot of Allsvenskan table and they had found it hard to avoid defeats in majority of the matches this season. Gefle had lost in 9 and Falkenberg in 10 of their 12 matches so far. But Gefle had a strong head-to-head record against Falkenberg and had lost only once in the last 8 competitive matches. Even though they will take some confidence from this, but I can definitely see this one being a very unpredictable match. So the result to tip towards either side.
Gefle to win or draw on double chance is a safer option for this game, and I expect to see very few goals in this relegation battle fixture.
- Double Chance – Gefle/Draw
- Under 2.5 goals
- Both Teams not to score.
