Gefle form and stats

4 victories, 2 draws and 4 defeats. That’s what Gefle have to build on here at Gavlevallen in the Ettan: North.

A strong away win for Gefle against Tegs SK the last match, as E. Granat (2), I. Lidberg (2) and J. Hjelte were on target. Before that match, a win away at Haninge.

As mentioned above, Gefle "killed" Tegs SK in their previous game. They need to reset completely for this one and beware of complacency.

The betting market estimate that the home team has about 55-60% chance of winning this match. There could be betting value if you think differently, so to help you here are the stats from Gefle's earlier matches at home being 55%-60% favourite: Played five games, won three matches, drawn zero and lost two.

Gefle have proved capable of finding the net in their games here at Gavlevallen with 17 goals in 10 league matches. It's worth mentioning that 9 of these goals has been scored in their last three home matches. With more than 1,5 conceded goals on average, the Gefle defense is not exactly impregnable. 19 goals conceded from 10 games. You can find more goal stats on the Statistics tab above.

IFK Luleå form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for IFK Luleå so far with only 10 points returning home. The records show 3-1-7 (win-draw-lose). Three might be a magic number, but there's been little wizardry in Luleå's last three away games as they have all been lost.

Luleå lost away at Vasalund (1-2) in their previous game and are perhaps starting to feel homesick. Before that, Luleå secured a home win against Nyköping with the score 4-0.

Looking at the earlier recent performances of IFK Luleå when being an outsider away as they are today, we find one match with the visitors losing one time, drawing zero and winning zero games.

A new game in only three days for Luleå, the Ettan: North home match versus Tegs SK. Busy days.

Luleå are scoring more than one goal per away game on average, having accumulated 16 away goals from 11 games (in the league). Luleå have conceded 25 goals in these games.
