Team News: Helsingborgs IF
Helsingborgs IF boss Olof Mellberg has zero fitness concerns at all coming into this game thanks to a completely injury-free group available for selection.
Team News: Hammarby IF
In an otherwise full-strength group of players, there is only the lone fitness problem for the Hammarby IF boss Stefan Billborn to be concerned about. Loue Bayere Junior (Knee Surgery) won’t be playing here.
In our view, Helsingborgs IF will have to play well to find the net against this Hammarby IF side who we reckon will get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a good battle with a 0-1 win for Hammarby IF at the conclusion of the game.
There should be little in it.
