Team News: Helsingborgs IF
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just the lone fitness concern for the Helsingborgs IF gaffer Matthias Lindström to be concerned with from an otherwise complete group of players. Brandur Hendriksson (Knee Injury) misses out.
It seems likely that Di Röe look set to kick off with a 4-4-2 formation in the match, beginning the first half with Kalle Joelsson, Casper Widell, Ali Suljic, Thomas Rogne, Viljormur Davidsen, Wilhelm Loeper, Abdul Khalili, Alexander Faltsetas, Taha Abdi Ali, Amar Muhsin and R. Wiedesheim-Paul.
Team News: Malmö
Malmö manager Andreas Georgson has multiple availability issues to deal with. Niklas Moisander (Cruciate Ligament Injury), Mahamé Siby (Hip Injury) and Adi Nalic (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will not be playing here.
There’s a good chance that Himmelsblått seem most likely to elect for a 3-4-3 formation using Ismael Diawara, Lasse Nielsen, Dennis Hadzikadunic, Martin Olsson, Joseph Ceesay, Moustafa Zeidan, Oscar Lewicki, Jonas Knudsen, Sergio Peña, Isaac Kiese Thelin and Jo Inge Berget.
In this game, Helsingborgs IF certainly have the ability to breach the defence of this Malmö FF side, but one goal probably won’t be as many as they will have scored against them.
Therefore, we think that it’s going to be a very close game with a 1-2 advantage for Malmö FF at full-time. Should be an interesting one.
