Team News: Dalkurd FF
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just the sole fitness concern for the Dalkurd FF gaffer Dalibor Savić to be concerned with from a near full-strength squad. Rewan Amin (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is out of contention.
Team News: AFC Eskilstuna
Due to a completely healthy group to pick from, the AFC Eskilstuna manager Jawad Al Jebouri does not have any fitness worries to speak of coming into this match.
We’re inclined to think that AFC Eskilstuna will, in all probability, create a good amount of chances and successful shots on target.
At the same time, Dalkurd FF might well find it difficult to score themselves although we reckon that they could well end up hitting back at some stage here, too.
We reckon that it will be a pretty comfortable 1-3 margin for AFC Eskilstuna come full-time.
