Team News: Mjällby AIF
The Mjällby AIF boss Andreas Brännström will be grateful to have no fitness worries to speak of coming into this game owing to a completely injury-free group to choose from.
It looks as if Mjällby AIF should use a 3-2-3-2 system for this game, utilising Samuel Brolin, Noah Eile, Carlos Moros, Ivan Kricak, Adam Staahl, Noah Persson, Otto Rosengren, Jesper Gustavsson, Jetmir Haliti, Mamudu Moro and Silas Nwankwo.
Team News: IF Elfsborg
Owing to an otherwise available group of players, there’s just the sole fitness issue for the IF Elfsborg boss Jimmy Thelin to be concerned with. Viktor Widell (Cruciate Ligament Injury) misses out for this game.
From our viewpoint, Di Gule seem most likely to utilise a 4-3-3 system using H. Rafn Valdimarsson, Simon Strand, Maudo Jarjue, Sebastian Holmen, Niklas Hult, Emmanuel Boateng, Michael Baidoo, Noah Soederberg, Jeppe Okkels, S. Aron Gudjohnsen and Rasmus Alm.
We feel that Mjällby AIF may not find it easy to score goals against this IF Elfsborg outfit who we think will likely score at least once to gain the upper hand.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a good battle with a 0-1 advantage for IF Elfsborg at the end of the match.
