Syrianska vs Gefle
Shared points in relegation battle
Syrianska want to borrow the forward Josef Ibrahim from Orebro. The 21 year old Ibrahim is positive to a move since he has not played much this season in Orebro.
The left back Sebastian Salvatore has not played much for Gefle this season. Now he might be up for a move to Varbergs in Superettan (the second league).
Doubtful: Anders Baath (groin)

Syrianska and Gefle are the two teams that seem to be fighting with Orebro and GAIS to avoid relegation this autumn. This match might therefore turn out to be very important towards the end of the season. Syrianska lost with 1-0 away against Goteborg Tuesday night and even though they had some really good goal chances, the loss reflected the match well. After a very good period before the summer break, they have now only one point on the five matches after the series started again.
Gefle’s form curve is pointing slightly upwards, but they have problems winning matches. When they lose, they are usually just not good enough but some of their ties could have been wins.
Gefle lost with 0-2 at home against Malmo a week after their incredible 5-0 win against Goteborg. Gefle played well however, they lost against Sweden’s right now probably best team. They are now totally free from injuries and suspensions.
Syrianska will be the attacking team here. Gefle will defend and hope for good goal chances when counter attacking. One Syrianska player who has performed well lately is the striker Dinko Felic. He alone can create problems for Gefle’s defense. I doubt however that Syrianska has the strength at the moment to beat Gefle. If any team wins this match, it should be Syrianska. But even more likely, they share the points.
HEAD TO HEAD
These teams played 1-1 in April. Last season Gefle won with 2-1 at home and played 1-1 away.
