Team News: IF Elfsborg
Thanks to a fully injury-free squad available for selection, IF Elfsborg manager Jimmy Thelin has no fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this match.
We’re of the thinking that Di Gule seem likely to make use of a 4-3-3 lineup using Tim Rönning, Johan Larsson, Joseph Okumu, Leo Väisänen, Simon Strand, Frederik Holst, Robert Gojani, Simon Olsson, Jesper Karlsson, Marokhy Ndione and Rasmus Alm.
We feel that IF Elfsborg would be disappointed if they were not to put a goal past this IFK Norrköping team, however it probably shouldn’t be enough to avoid a loss. We are anticipating a 2-1 victory for IFK Norrköping at full-time. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
