View all GAIS v Ljungskile SK tips, stats and our pre-match poll below - plus the latest match odds.
GAIS will be wanting a better result here following the 2-0 Superettan defeat in their last game at the hands of AFC Eskilstuna.
Samuel Nnamani (61') and Francis Jno-Baptiste (66') scored for AFC Eskilstuna.
It’s been seldom in recent times where GAIS haven’t conceded. It will be a concern for them that Makrillarna have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 games, shipping 9 goals along the way. Let’s find out whether or not that trend will end up being continued on here.
Looking at the pre-match facts, GAIS:
- have not emerged victorious against Ljungskile SK in their last 8 matches in the league.
- are undefeated in their last 2 league matches at home.
Since a loss in their previous game against Umeå FC in Superettan action, Ljungskile SK and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
The only scorer from Ljungskile SK was Issac Boye (88'). Ahmetović (74', 90') and Takahashi (80') scored for Umeå FC.
The stats don’t lie, and Ljungskile SK have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, conceding 12 goals in all. In defence, LSK have not been doing too well.
Coming into this clash, Ljungskile SK haven't been defeated by GAIS when they have played them away from home in the previous 4 league games. A very good record, indeed.

Owing to a fully healthy squad available to choose from, Ljungskile SK manager Jörgen Wålemark has no fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this match.
We feel that Ljungskile SK could find themselves struggling to hit the back of the net against this GAIS outfit who we reckon will get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
We’ve gone for a very competitive encounter with a 1-0 winning margin for GAIS at the end of this one.
Expecting it to be tight.
