Team News: Kalmar FF
Kalmar FF manager Nanne Bergstrand has no fitness worries to speak of coming into this clash with a completely injury-free group ready to go.
It seems likely that Röda bröder could kick off with a 3-4-3 system, beginning the first half with Lucas Hägg, Fidan Aliti, Gbenga Arokoyo, Emin Nouri, Sebastian Ring, Romario Pereira Sipiao, Carl Gustafsson, Svante Ingelsson, Edvin Crona, Filip Sachpekidis and Isak Magnusson.
Team News: Hammarby IF
Out of a mainly available group of players, there is just the one fitness issue for the Hammarby IF boss Stefan Billborn to be concerned about. Loue Bayere Junior (Knee Surgery) won’t be in action.
We are inclined to think that Bajen will likely elect for a 4-2-3-1 formation, choosing David Ousted, Simon Sandberg, Mads Fenger, David Fällman, Dennis Widgren, Darijan Bojanic, Jeppe Andersen, Alex Kacaniklic, Abdul Khalili, Muamer Tankovic and Gustav Ludwigson.
Here is a game where Kalmar FF will really need to work well to be putting a goal past this Hammarby IF outfit who will likely get the vital goal that wins it.
We therefore fancy a highly competitive game with a 0-1 winning margin for Hammarby IF at the conclusion of the game.
We’re expecting it to be that close.
