Team News: Jönköpings Södra IF
Jönköpings Södra IF boss Andreas Brännström will be grateful not to have any fitness worries at all ahead of this match with a fully healthy squad available for selection.
Team News: GAIS
GAIS manager Stefan Jacobsson has to currently contend with reduced team options. Donat Zejnullahu (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Aiden Connor Harvey (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Mervan Celik (Shoulder Injury) will not be playing here.
We’re of the view that Jönköpings Södra IF have it within them to get a lot of shots on goal and make them count.
In contrast, GAIS could well find it tough to score a goal of their own but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be pulling one back during this clash.
We reckon that it will be a fairly comfortable 3-1 win for Jönköpings Södra IF at the end of this one.
