Team News: Helsingborgs IF
Owing to an otherwise healthy group, there’s just the one fitness worry for the Helsingborgs IF gaffer Jörgen Lennartsson to contend with. Assad Al Hamlawi (Fatigue fracture) won’t be playing here.
We believe that Helsingborgs IF and GIF Sundsvall 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 is why we are leaning toward a close game with a 0-0 draw at the end of the 90 minutes.
