Team News: Djurgårdens IF
The Djurgårdens IF boss Kim Bergstrand doesn’t have any fitness worries at all before this game with a fully healthy squad available to select from.
It looks as if Blåränderna will probably employ a 4-3-3 formation for the game featuring J. W. Zetterström, Piotr Johansson, Isak Hien, Hjalmar Ekdal, Pierre Bengtsson, Rasmus Schuller, Hampus Finndell, Magnus Eriksson, Haris Radetinac, Victor Edvardsen and Sead Haksabanovic.
Team News: Malmö
From a largely available group, there’s just the sole fitness worry for the Malmö gaffer Miloš Milojević to contend with. Jonas Knudsen (Knee Injury) misses out for this game.
We believe Himmelsblått will likely utilise a 4-3-3 formation, starting Ismael Diawara, Felix Beijmo, Matej Chalus, Martin Olsson, Eric Larsson, Hugo Larsson, Sergio Peña, Erdal Rakip, Malik Abubakari, Ola Toivonen and Veljko Birmancevic.
Our feeling is that Malmö FF and Djurgårdens IF could end up without much reward for their efforts here.
Let’s see how it plays out, but a draw with few scoring chances is looking likely to us. That’s why we have predicted a tight encounter, finishing with a 0-0 score when the full-time whistle blows.
