Team News: Östersunds FK
Regarding absentees, there’s just the lone fitness concern for the Östersunds FK gaffer Amir Azrafshan to contend with from a near full-strength squad. Rewan Amin (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t play.
We are thinking that Östersunds will probably go for a 4-3-3 formation for this one featuring Aly Keita, Kalpi Ouattara, Noah Sonko Sundberg, Thomas Isherwood, Samuel Mensiro, Nebiyou Perry, Isak Ssewankambo, Charlie Colkett, Felix Hörberg, Francis Baptiste and Blair Turgott.
Team News: Djurgårdens IF
Thanks to a completely healthy squad to pick from, Djurgårdens IF manager Kim Bergstrand doesn’t have any fitness worries to report coming into this match.
We believe Blåränderna seem likely to utilise a 4-2-3-1 lineup by sending out Per Kristian Bråtveit, Aslak Fonn Witry, Jacob Une Larsson, Jonathan Augustinsson, Elliot Kack, Curtis Edwards, Jesper Karlström, Jonathan Ring, Magnus Eriksson, Edward Chilufya and Karl Holmberg.
We’re of the opinion that Östersunds FK have it in them to breach the defence of this Djurgårdens IF side, although one goal might not quite be as many as they will have scored against them.
We are therefore anticipating a tight encounter finishing with a 1-2 win for Djurgårdens IF when all is said and done. It really should be an interesting one.
