IK Brage boss Klebér Saarenpää has a full complement, with no fitness worries at all before this clash owing to a fully healthy squad available for selection.
Team News: Helsingborgs IF
Thanks to a mainly available group, there is only a single fitness problem for the Helsingborgs IF manager Jörgen Lennartsson to be concerned about. Assad Al Hamlawi (Fatigue fracture) misses out for this game.
We think that IK Brage will need to put in a solid display to find the net against this Helsingborgs IF team who we reckon will end up scoring and staying ahead.
Therefore, we predict a narrow 0-1 winning score for Helsingborgs IF at the end of this one.
Looking forward to watching this one unfold.
