Team News: Malmö
Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just a single fitness concern for the Malmö boss Jon Tomasson to be concerned about from of an almost fully healthy squad. Rasmus Bengtsson (Knee Injury) won’t play.
It’s our opinion that Himmelsblått should use the 3-5-2 formation for this one with Lucas Hägg, Viktor Elm, Fidan Aliti, Emin Nouri, Sebastian Ring, Svante Ingelsson, Filip Sachpekidis, Isak Jansson, Piotr Johansson, Nils Fröling and Geir André Herrem.
Team News: Djurgårdens IF
With a completely injury-free group ready to go, Djurgårdens IF manager Kim Bergstrand has no fitness worries at all before this game.
We reckon that Blåränderna will likely elect for a 3-5-2 system using Aly Keita, Noah Sonko Sundberg, Thomas Isherwood, Eirik Haugan, Felix Hörberg, Rewan Amin, Charlie Colkett, Isak Ssewankambo, Marco Weymans, Jordan Attah Kadiri and Nebiyou Perry.
In our opinion, Malmö have it within them to fashion enough chances to find the net more than once while possibly not conceding when they face Djurgårdens IF, who might well find it a difficult task to find the back of the net. We’re therefore expecting to see a fairly comfortable 2-0 win for Malmö by the time that the referee blows the final whistle.
