Team News: Gefle IF
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just one fitness concern for the Gefle IF gaffer Mikael Bengtsson to be concerned about thanks to an otherwise robust squad. 6 (Gefle ) is out of contention.
Team News: GAIS
In an otherwise full-strength group of players, there’s only the sole fitness worry for the GAIS manager Fredrik Holmberg to be concerned about. 3 (GAIS ) misses out for this game.
When taking all factors into account, GAIS have it within them to be in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of their chances.
Conversely, Gefle IF could well struggle finding the net themselves but we can see them seeing enough of the ball to score, too.
We can therefore see a 1-3 winning margin for GAIS at the end of this one.
