Team News: Hammarby IF
Hammarby IF boss Stefan Billborn will be thankful to have no fitness worries whatsoever before this game with a fully healthy squad available to choose from.
We think that Bajen will possibly employ a 4-2-3-1 system for this game, handing starts to David Ousted, Mohanad Jeahze, David Fällman, Mads Fenger, Tim Söderström, Jeppe Andersen, Darijan Bojanic, Paulinho, Muamer Tankovic, Abdul Khalili and Aron Johannsson.
Team News: Helsingborgs IF
Helsingborg boss Olof Mellberg has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Armin Gigovic (Corona virus) and Assad Al Hamlawi (Fatigue fracture) are not ready for selection.
We’re of the thinking that Di Röe seem most likely to elect for a 4-4-2 system, giving starts to Alexander Nilsson, Joseph Ceesay, Kebba Ceesay, Martin Olsson, Adam Eriksson, Brandur Hendriksson Olsen, Mohammed Abubakari, Mikkel Diskerud, Max Svensson, Rasmus Jönsson and Anthony van den Hurk.
It certainly seems that Helsingborgs IF will need to be at their best to get a goal against a Hammarby IF lineup who will most probably boss most aspects of this game if it turns out as we expect.
Our tip is for a very comfortable 3-0 margin for Hammarby IF at the end of this one.
