The return of international football is the talk of the football world at the moment but before it commences, there are still domestic fixtures to be played. Tuesday night brings the final game in matchweek 21 in the Swedish Superettan as Gefle host Orgryte.
The last three meetings between these two sides have all come within the last two seasons in the Superettan. Gefle haven’t won in any of the fixtures and Orgryte have come away with two victories, including the earlier one this campaign. Despite going into half-time at 1-1, the hosts on the day won 3-1 to pile more misery on the visitors. Both teams have scored in two of the three games and there have been over 2.5 goals just once.
The hosts can’t move up the table with three points but they can pull further away from the bottom of the table. A win would take them two points away from the automatic relegation places. Latest matches: Gefle IF

A chance of promotion might be a long way off for the visitors but a win would increase their already-high chances of staying in the league. They’ll be confident of taking at least a point.

Despite having home advantage, Gefle are the underdogs in Tuesday’s clash as Orgryte go into the match with much better form. It should be a low-scoring and a one-goal lead could nick all three points, although the visitors haven’t kept a clean sheet in over a month so the home side might get a goal. The most likely outcome in an away win to nil.
