Team News: IFK Göteborg
There aren’t many selection issues, with just the lone fitness concern for the IFK Göteborg gaffer Roland Nilsson to be concerned about from a near full-strength group. André Calisir (Corona virus) will miss out.
Team News: BK Häcken
Thanks to a mainly healthy group, there’s just the sole fitness worry for the BK Häcken manager Andreas Alm to be concerned about. Peter Abrahamsson (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be playing here.
When taking everything into account, IFK Göteborg could well find it tough to be putting a goal past this BK Häcken side who we reckon will get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
That’s why our selection here is for a very even match with a 0-1 win for BK Häcken at the end of this one.
Should be a close one.
