Team News: BK Häcken
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just the lone fitness concern for the BK Häcken manager Andreas Alm to contend with from a near full-strength group. Kevin Yakob (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will miss out.
It seems likely that Getingarna should go for a 4-3-3 formation for this one, utilising Peter Abrahamsson, Leonard Zuta, Rasmus Lindgren, Joona Toivio, Godswill Ekpolo, Alexander Faltsetas, Daleho Irandust, Erik Friberg, Ali Youssef, Leo Bengtsson and Ahmed Yasin.
Team News: IFK Göteborg
Thanks to a largely available group of players, there’s only the lone fitness problem for the IFK Göteborg gaffer Poya Asbaghi to be concerned with. André Calisir (Unknown Injury) won’t be in action.
It’s our belief that Blåvitt could decide to play in a 4-2-3-1 lineup, settling for Giannis Anestis, Alexander Jallow, Mattias Bjärsmyr, August Erlingmark, Victor Wernersson, Alhassan Yusuf, Tobias Sana, Hosam Aiesh, Patrik Karlsson Lagemyr, Giorgi Kharaishvili and Sargon Abraham.
Our assessment is that IFK Göteborg will likely create enough chances to find the net against this BK Häcken team, however it might not quite be enough to avoid a loss.
We are anticipating a close game with a 2-1 winning score for BK Häcken when the full-time whistle blows. Should be a good one.
