Scroll down for all of our predictions, poll and stats for the GAIS v Östers IF game (plus the best game odds).
GAIS will play in this game following on from a 0-0 Superettan draw against AFC Eskilstuna.
Their most recent results really do illustrate the point that things are going according to plan in the GAIS backline. Makrillarna have kept it tight, resulting in the total number of goals that have gone in at their end over the course of their last 6 clashes standing at 3. That kind of trend won’t necessarily be carried forward here, of course.

Owing to a fully injury-free squad available to choose from, Östers IF boss Denis Velic doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this game.
We’ve got the feeling that Östers IF and GAIS could both end up scoring in a what should be a good tussle with little between the two teams.
Let’s see what happens, but it could well be that we end up with scores level. We’re therefore predicting a tight encounter with a 1-1 score draw after 90 minutes.
