Looking at the pre-match facts, Falkenberg:
- haven't beaten IFK Norrköping in their last 3 matches in the league.

Team News: Falkenberg
Falkenberg boss Hasse Eklund has a full complement, with no fitness concerns whatsoever before this game thanks to a completely healthy group to pick from.
We think that Falkenberg may well make use of the 4-2-3-1 formation for this one with Viktor Noring, Tobias Englund, Sander Van Looy, Carl Johansson, Tibor Joza, John Björkengren, Marcus Mathisen, John Chibuike, Anton Wede, Christoffer Carlsson and Edi Sylisufaj.
Team News: IFK Norrköping
Thanks to a fully healthy group ready to go, IFK Norrköping boss Jens Gustafsson has no fitness concerns to report ahead of this match.
We believe Snoka will likely play in a 4-3-3 lineup with a starting lineup of Isak Pettersson, Henrik Castegren, Rasmus Lauritsen, Filip Dagerstal, Lars Cristian Krogh Gerson, Ísak Bergmann Jóhannesson, Eric Smith, Ishaq Abdulrazak, Sead Haksabanovic, Christoffer Nyman and Jonathan Levi.
We’re envisaging that Falkenberg could find themselves up against it to see themselves scoring against this IFK Norrköping lineup who will likely end up scoring and staying ahead.
We’ve gone for a 0-1 advantage for IFK Norrköping at the end of the 90.
There should be little in it.
