Team News: IFK Norrköping
IFK Norrköping boss Rikard Norling has no fitness concerns to speak of coming into this clash with a completely healthy squad available to select from.
Team News: BK Häcken
Häcken boss Per-Mathias Hogmo has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Jasse Tuominen (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Peter Abrahamsson (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are those who can’t be considered.
We’re envisaging that BK Häcken will have to perform well to score goals against this IFK Norrköping outfit who we think might well get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
We’re therefore tipping a good tussle with a 1-0 victory for IFK Norrköping at the end of this game.
