Gefle vs GAIS
Sweden – Superettan
Date: Monday, 8 October 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK
Venue: Gavlevallen (Gavle).
Gefle have finally ended their goalscoring woes and bagged four points in two trips since mid-September, hosting similarly struggling GAIS for their Matchday 26 clash on Monday evening looking to build on such results and cut the gap in an attempt to escape the Superettan rock-bottom late in the campaign.
They have failed to find the net in all of their last three home outings, beaten here by Brage, Orgryte, and Falkenberg, but we do feel Marcus Bengtsson’s men will be very motivated taking from the last two outings. Gavle side sit five points behind 14th placed Varnamo and this could as well be their last train to the Relegation Play-off spots amid a troubled season.
GAIS come into the match with a streak of two draws behind them, where they held off Degerfors and Helsingborg, but this only ended a streak of three losses seen beforehand and is a rather questionable pick-me-up. They have been scoring goals on the regular and will hope to do the same at Gavlevallen, hoping to show off as a tough side to beat on the road once again!
Gefle vs GAIS: Head-to-head
- GAIS have somewhat better overall head-to-head records but haven’t beaten the rivals at this ground since 2011.
- We’ve seen a goalless draw between the sides at Gamla Ullevi earlier this season.
- Gefle have earned a 2-1 win over the rivals in their last clash at this ground, securing the points with a last-minute winner from Piotr Johansson.
Gefle vs GAIS: Prediction
We will now back Gefle to show off as a tough side to score against once again but we’ll only stick our necks out for a Draw at 3.60. We don’t believe GAIS have what it takes to snatch all three points at this point, as the home side seemingly have a lot more to play for.
However, we do believe Gefle will have to score goals once again to do so and with that in mind, we’ll also back a YES on Both teams to score at 1.66. GAIS have been scoring goals on the regular away from home and we do believe they’ll do the same at Gavlevallen now!
