  • The hosts claimed a 2-1 win when these two sides last met and have scored at least two goals in four of their last six outings, while Goteborg have only failed to score in two of their last six matches which is why a 2-1 scoreline in favour of GAIS seems possible.

Player to watch – William Milovanovic

GAIS's 21-year-old midfielder William Milovanovic has made a promising start to life in the Allsvenskan with one goal and two assists in his opening six appearances.

GAIS's young midfielder has started the new season brightly

Milovanovic, who signed for GAIS from Utsikten, started his career at Hacken and will be happy to be playing top flight football once again after GAIS's promotion. We're backing Milovanovic to put in another good performance for the hosts on Monday night, one that will see GAIS get something out of their derby match against Goteborg.
