Team News: Kalmar FF
With a completely injury-free group available for selection, Kalmar FF boss Nanne Bergstrand has zero fitness worries to speak of coming into this match.
We are inclined to think that Röda bröder will likely begin the game with a 4-3-3 system, starting the game with Lucas Hägg, Emin Nouri, Fidan Aliti, Viktor Elm, Sebastian Ring, Svante Ingelsson, Romario Pereira Sipiao, Filip Sachpekidis, York Rafael, Isak Magnusson and Geir André Herrem.
We think that Kalmar FF may find it difficult to breach the defence of this Mjällby AIF team who we think should do enough to score at the other end and edge ahead.
We’re going for a very competitive encounter with a 1-0 winning margin for Mjällby AIF when the full-time whistle blows.
Hopefully it’s a good one.
