Gefle-IFK Goteborg Betting Special: Visitors value to edge tight encounter

Per Olsson's men will be desperate for a victory as they look to climb away from the foot of the table, but Willie Duncan is backing Mikael Stahre's men to claim the points here
IFK Goteborg will be aiming to claim top spot in the Allsvenskan table when they travel to take on struggling Gefle on Wednesday evening.

Goteborg, who start the match just two points adrift of league leaders Helsingborgs, are chalked up at a hugely appealing 10/11 (1.91) with Paddy Power to claim the victory that they require to return to the Allsvenskan summit.

Gefle, by contrast, are just one point clear of the foot of the table and Per Olsson’s men are available at 13/5 (3.60) with Paddy Power to secure a home win on Wednesday. The same firm go 11/5 (3.20) that the match ends in stalemate.

Paddy Power customers will be able to watch the match, which kicks off at 6pm, live on Paddy Power TV on Wednesday evening and it is set to be an intriguing contest for those who do tune in.

It is worth noting that Gefle have garnered no fewer than seven of their eight points thus far this term on home soil and the hosts are chalked up at just 4/6 (1.67) with a goal start in Paddy Power’s handicap market, while the same firm offer 5/1 (6.0) that Gefle lead at both half-time and full-time.

However, Per Olsson’s side have failed to win any of their last six fixtures and so there is plenty of value in backing the in-form visitors this evening.

Goteborg have won five of their last seven matches and have conceded just five goals in nine Allsvenskan matches so far this term, so Mikael Stahre's men will fancy their chances of extending that impressive record against the lowly hosts.

A tight contest seems the most likely outcome and the juicy 11/2 (6.50) quote from Paddy Power for IFK to edge the contest 1-0 is sure to attract support from punters. However, there is plenty value in simply backing Goteborg to claim victory at 10/11 (1.91) with the same firm and that is the recommended play here.
