Djurgårdens IF manager Kim Bergstrand doesn’t have any fitness worries to speak of before this clash owing to a completely healthy squad available for selection.
Team News: Malmö
Thanks to a largely healthy group, there is only a single fitness worry for the Malmö gaffer Jon Tomasson to be concerned about. Johan Dahlin (Arm Injury) won’t be in action.
We’re envisaging that Djurgårdens IF might need a bit of good fortune to find the net against this Malmö side who we think will score one, at least.
Therefore, we predict a highly competitive game with a 0-1 win for Malmö at full-time.
A close call.
