GAIS V ORGRYTE
GAIS will play in this game following on from a 0-0 Superettan drawn game vs Falkenbergs FF.
In that match, GAIS managed 47% possession and 8 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. At the other end, Falkenbergs FF had 7 attempts on goal with 1 on target.
It’s been seldom in recent times where GAIS have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that GAIS have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, shipping 9 goals along the way. Such a pattern isn’t assured to be continued into this game, however.
Coming into this fixture, GAIS are without a win at home for the past 2 league games.
Last time out, Orgryte drew 2-2 in the Superettan match with AFC Eskilstuna.
In that game, Orgryte managed 58% possession and 12 shots at goal with 7 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Orgryte was Ajdin Zeljkovic (66', 89'). For their opponents, AFC Eskilstuna got 8 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. André Alsanati (3') and Marwan Baze (78') scored for AFC Eskilstuna.
In the course of their six most recent matches, Dane Ivarsson's Orgryte have seen their efforts on goal rewarded a total of 9 times thus yielding them a goals per game average of 1.5.
Prediction: Both teams to score
AL-NASR V BANIYAS
Al-Nasr will want to continue from where they left off last time out with the 0-4 Arabian Gulf League success against Emirates.
Three or more goals per game have been seen in 6 of the last 6 fixtures where Al-Nasr have played. Opposing sides scored 8 of them in this period while Al-Nasr managed to get a total of 15. Previous results aside, we must now wait to see whether that pattern might be sustained in this match.
Following on from being beaten in their last game against Ajman in Arabian Gulf League action, Baniyas will be aiming to make amends here.
The stats don’t lie, and Baniyas have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, conceding 7 goals overall. In defence, Baniyas can certainly do much better.
Prediction: Both teams to score
KHORFAKKAN V EMIRATES
Khorfakkan are hoping to win again following the 3-0 Arabian Gulf League victory against Al-Dhafra.
Goran Tufegdžić's Khorfakkan have celebrated scoring a sum total of 6 times in their last 6 outings. At the other end, the tally of goals that they have conceded in those same fixtures is 10.
After being beaten in their last game against Al-Nasr in Arabian Gulf League action, Emirates and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
The attacking players from Emirates have made hard work of scoring goals in their past 6 games, recording the disappointing return of just 3. In those fixtures, The Falcons have also seen the collective goal aggregate of their opponents equal 15.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
