Team News: Varbergs BoIS
There’s just the sole fitness concern for the Varbergs BoIS gaffer Joakim Persson to contend with from an otherwise complete squad. Daniel Krezic (Cruciate Ligament Injury) is out of contention.
Team News: IFK Göteborg
Göteborg boss Mikael Stahre has not got a full squad to pick from. Patrik Karlsson Lagemyr (Unknown Injury), Kevin Yakob (Groin Injury) and Simon Thern (Foot Injury) are those who can’t be considered.
We feel that over the course of the game, Varbergs BoIS may find it difficult to see themselves scoring against this IFK Göteborg lineup who will likely end up scoring and possibly keep a clean sheet as well.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a very competitive game with a 0-1 advantage for IFK Göteborg at the conclusion of the game.
Little in this one.
