Team News: Helsingborgs IF
Helsingborgs IF boss Olof Mellberg will be grateful to have no fitness worries at all coming into this game thanks to a fully healthy group available to select from.
We think that Di Röe look set to make use of the 4-4-2 system in the match with Alexander Nilsson, Adam Eriksson, Martin Olsson, Jakob Voelkerling Persson, Anders Randrup, Max Svensson, Mikkel Diskerud, Brandur Hendriksson Olsen, Armin Gigovic, Assad Al Hamlawi and Anthony van den Hurk.
Team News: IFK Norrköping
Owing to a completely healthy group to choose from, IFK Norrköping boss Jens Gustafsson doesn’t have any fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this match.
There’s a good chance that Snoka seem most likely to make use of a 4-3-3 lineup by sending out Isak Pettersson, Linus Wahlqvist, Rasmus Lauritsen, Lars Cristian Krogh Gerson, Henrik Castegren, Alexander Fransson, Eric Smith, Andreas Blomqvist, Jonathan Levi, Christoffer Nyman and Ísak Bergmann Jóhannesson.
We feel that Helsingborgs IF will have a tough ask to be putting a goal past this IFK Norrköping lineup who we think might manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
We’re therefore expecting a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 0-1 winning margin for IFK Norrköping at the end of the 90 minutes.
Looking forward to this.
