Last Monday's 2-0 away defeat was the last straw for the former boss, who handed in his resignation after presiding over a run of 10 league games without a win. That run leaves the Makrillarna second bottom in the Allsvenskan table with half a season gone.
With seven points separating them from safety, the Gothenburg club will be desperately hoping that this change in leadership will now inspire the beginning of their great escape.
Despite being outplayed in Malmo last week, GAIS will know that their opponents are a very different proposition away from home, having won just once on the road all season.
Indeed, Di Blae's frailties were brutally exposed by their 2-1 defeat at rock-bottom Orebro last time out, and this result makes Panbet's offer of 63/20 (4.15) on a home victory in this match seem all the more generous.
Rikard Norling's men may not have won at Gamla Ullevi in five years, but they are still 19/20 (1.95) favourites to compound the managerless side's misery and take all three points from them for the second time in just seven days.
Malmo's run of three away draws in five combined with GAIS's four in seven at home makes a stalemate a distinct possibility on Monday, so you would be wise to have a small flutter at inviting odds of 49/20 (3.45).
The main cause of Malmo's away woes is their defence, as they have let in 17 goals in just seven matches on their travels.
Six out of these seven games have featured over 2.5 goals, and when you consider that GAIS have only kept one clean sheet in 10, this market offers great value at odds of 19/20 (1.95) this evening.
