Team News: Örebro SK
Looking at personnel, there is just the lone fitness concern for the Örebro SK manager Axel Kjäll to contend with from of an almost fully healthy squad. Rasmus Karjalainen (Neck Injury) will miss out.
Team News: IFK Norrköping
With a completely injury-free squad available to select from, IFK Norrköping manager Rikard Norling has zero fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this match.
We’re of the view that Örebro SK will surely be able to find the back of the net against this IFK Norrköping lineup, but a single goal may not quite prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We can see both teams to score in a 1-2 advantage for IFK Norrköping at the end of this one. Should be an interesting one.
