Team News: IFK Göteborg
IFK Göteborg boss Poya Asbaghi has a full complement, with no fitness worries whatsoever coming into this match owing to a completely injury-free group ready to go.
We think that Blåvitt could make use of the 4-2-3-1 formation for the game featuring Giannis Anestis, Jesper Tolinsson, André Calisir, Kristopher Da Graca, Alexander Jallow, Alhassan Yusuf, Jakob Johansson, Patrik Karlsson Lagemyr, Tobias Sana, Christian Kouakou and Sargon Abraham.
Team News: Hammarby IF
With a completely injury-free squad ready to go, Hammarby IF manager Stefan Billborn has zero fitness concerns at all before this match.
There’s a good chance that Bajen will likely make use of a 3-4-3 formation, starting David Ousted, Mads Fenger, Richard Magyar, David Fällman, Vladimir Rodic, Abdul Khalili, Darijan Bojanic, Mohanad Jeahze, Gustav Ludwigson, Aron Johannsson and Paulinho.
Our feeling is that Hammarby IF and IFK Göteborg could end up without much reward for their efforts here.
Let’s see how this one goes, but it looks this could be a game with minimal goal-scoring opportunities. That is why we are leaning toward a very competitive game with a 0-0 scoreline at the end of the match.
