Team News: Tromsø IL
Owing to a fully healthy squad available to select from, the Tromsø IL manager Gaute Helstrup has zero fitness worries to report ahead of this clash.
We are inclined to think that Gutan appear most likely to play in a 3-5-2 lineup, starting the game with Jakob Haugaard, Casper Oeyvann, Jostein Gundersen, Waren Kamanzi, Niklas Vesterlund, Sakarias Opsahl, R. Y. Jenssen, Kent-Are Antonsen, Lasse Nilsen, Moses Ebiye and August Mikkelsen.
Here, we’re thinking that Jerv will need to put in a solid display to put one past this Tromsø IL outfit who should end up scoring and staying ahead.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a narrow 0-1 winning score for Tromsø IL when all is said and done.
Little in this one.
