The only scorer from GAIS was Richard Yarsuvat (89'). Mikael Boman (19', 37') and Andreas Johansson (52') scored for Halmstads BK.
GAIS haven’t had any problems with scoring, hitting the target in each and every one of their last 6 matches.
They’ve claimed a sum of 10 during that period and have conceded a total of 7.
Since being beaten in their last game against Östers IF in Superettan action, Norrby IF and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
Nicolas Mortensen (78', 86') scored for Östers IF.
In 5 of the previous 6 clashes featuring Norrby IF, a relatively low number of goals have been scored between them and their opposition. The overall average goals scored per game within that spell works out to a paltry 2, with the number of goals averaged by Norrby standing at 0.5. While that may be of interest, it remains to be seen if the trend might persist in this upcoming game or not.

Team News: Norrby IF
With a completely injury-free group ready to go, Norrby IF boss Mak Lind has no fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this match.
It’s looking like Norrby IF and GAIS should both be able to find the back of the net here although it’s difficult to select a clear winner.
A close call, and we think a draw is quite likely. That is why we are leaning toward a tight encounter with a 1-1 scoreline after 90 minutes.
