GIF Sundsvall will be looking for an improved result here following the 1-0 Superettan defeat last time out to Trelleborgs FF.
In that match, GIF Sundsvall managed 57% possession and 13 attempts at goal with 5 of them on target. At the other end, Trelleborgs FF had 10 shots at goal with 7 on target. Petar Petrović (78') scored for Trelleborgs FF.
Henrik Åhnstrand's GIF Sundsvall have netted 9 times in their past half-dozen outings. At the other end, the number of goals that have been scored against them in that same time is 6.
Since a loss in their previous game against Landskrona BoIS in Superettan action, GAIS and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
In that game, GAIS had 50% possession and 7 shots at goal with 1 on target. The only player to score for GAIS was Adam Egnell (87'). For their opponents, Landskrona BoIS got 8 attempts on goal with 4 on target. Nicklas Nielsen (16'), Melker Heier (51') and Filip Ottosson (94') scored for Landskrona BoIS.
The stats don’t lie, and GAIS have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, conceding 10 goals overall. At the back, Makrillarna just haven’t been too solid at all. That trend won’t necessarily follow through here, though.
Head to head

GIF Sundsvall boss Henrik Åhnstrand has zero fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this match owing to a fully injury-free squad available for selection.

We believe that GAIS should get enough chances to break down this GIF Sundsvall lineup, however it might not quite be enough to avoid a loss.
We’re predicting a very close game with a 2-1 victory for GIF Sundsvall after 90 minutes. It will be interesting to see how this one goes.
