Due to a fully injury-free squad available to choose from, Östers IF boss Denis Velic doesn’t have any fitness worries to speak of coming into this clash.
We’re inclined to think that Östers IF and GAIS should play out a closely-fought contest here.
There should be little in it, and a draw looks to be quite a realistic result. That’s why our selection here is for a hard-fought 1-1 score draw when the referee blows the full-time whistle.
