Team News: Mjällby AIF
With a fully injury-free group available to select from, Mjällby AIF manager Marcus Lantz does not have any fitness concerns to report before this game.
We’re of the thinking that Mjällby seem likely to play in a 3-5-2 lineup, starting Carl Johan Eriksson, Victor Agardius, Jesper Löfgren, Erik Björkander, Jonathan Tamimi, David Löfquist, Besard Sabovic, Martin Spelmann, Kadir Hodzic, Moses Ogbu and Mamudo Moro.
We believe that BK Häcken will probably convert a lot of goal-scoring opportunities.
At the same time, Mjällby AIF may well find it hard to score a goal of their own but do we see them getting enough chances to score, too.
Our selection here is for a 3-1 winning score for BK Häcken at the end of this one.
