Team News: IK Brage
The IK Brage manager Klebér Saarenpää has zero fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this game with a completely healthy squad available for selection.
Team News: Dalkurd FF
Out of a mainly healthy group, there is only the one fitness worry for the Dalkurd FF gaffer Dalibor Savić to be concerned with. Rewan Amin (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game.
We’re thinking that IK Brage will, in all likelihood, be able to create a good number of chances & successful shots on target.
However, Dalkurd FF are also probably going to find it difficult to score themselves although we do reckon that they could well end up scoring.
We’re therefore expecting to see a controlled 3-1 victory for IK Brage when all’s said and done.
