Team News: IF Elfsborg
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just the lone fitness concern for the IF Elfsborg gaffer Jimmy Thelin to be concerned with thanks to an otherwise robust group. Viktor Widell (Cruciate Ligament Injury) is out of contention.
It’s our opinion that Di Gule will probably make use of the 4-3-3 system for the game, utilising Tim Rönning, Simon Strand, Leo Väisänen, Gustaf Lagerbielke, Oliver Zandén, Emmanuel Boateng, Simon Olsson, Andre Romer, Rasmus Alm, S. Aron Gudjohnsen and Jeppe Okkels.
Team News: Djurgårdens IF
Owing to a fully injury-free group available for selection, the Djurgårdens IF manager Kim Bergstrand has zero fitness concerns at all ahead of this match.
We reckon that Blåränderna might play in a 4-3-3 lineup, choosing J. W. Zetterström, Piotr Johansson, Isak Hien, Hjalmar Ekdal, Pierre Bengtsson, Rasmus Schuller, Hampus Finndell, Magnus Eriksson, Haris Radetinac, Joel Asoro and Sead Haksabanovic.
In our view, Djurgårdens IF have it in them to find the back of the net against this IF Elfsborg outfit, although that possibly won’t quite be enough to avoid a loss.
We’re predicting a close game with a 2-1 winning score for IF Elfsborg at the end of this one. We’ll have to see what happens.
