Gefle vs Carlstad United (By: Iniestaone)
10th placed Gefle is hosting 2nd placed Carlstad United
Another draw I am backing for Saturday and my final tip of the day is between Gefle and Carlstad
Gefle were of course relegated from Superettan last season, they played two seasons there and were in Allsvenskan prior to that so the team is in free fall in the system. They lost plenty of players of Superettan quality as they were relegated and they now have a very new team with 14 new players for this season, they brought in a really good goalkeeper from Philadelphia Union, Jake McGuire who is 25 and one of the oldest players in the squad. The average age is 22. Still, the squad has remained its defensive spirit and Gefle is still very much a team that focuses on defense first which is evident from their first three matches: one draw, one win, one loss and a goal difference of 4:2. The last match was at Vasalund away where they took a very strong point as big underdogs
Carlstad is a team that will most likely win this league, they are playing great football but I don't see them winning this as Gefle plays such compact defense in matches they are not supposed to win and this is one of those matches where they are expected to hold off the 1.70 favorite visitor to a draw. I think they will do so, Carlstads two wins came on home turf where they play on natural grass and they will now face Gefle on an artificial turf which always benefits the team that is used to playing on it.
I think this will be a boring match where Gefle will manage to salvage another point
Neither team has noteworthy absences
