Team News: Östersunds FK
Östersunds FK boss Amir Azrafshan has no fitness worries at all ahead of this match owing to a completely healthy squad available for selection.
It seems likely that Östersunds could employ a 4-3-1-2 formation in the match and select Aly Keita, Thomas Isherwood, Eirik Haugan, Ronald Mukiibi, Felix Hörberg, Kalpi Ouattara, Rewan Amin, Isak Ssewankambo, Nils Ludvig Fritzson, Blair Turgott and Nebiyou Perry.
Team News: Kalmar FF
In an otherwise available group of players, there’s just a single fitness worry for the Kalmar FF manager Nanne Bergstrand to be concerned with. Emin Nouri (Hip Injury) misses out for this game.
We’re of the thinking that Röda bröder seem most likely to begin the game with a 3-4-3 system by sending out Lucas Hägg, Fidan Aliti, Viktor Elm, Douglas Bergqvist, Piotr Johansson, Romario Pereira Sipiao, Svante Ingelsson, Sebastian Ring, Isak Magnusson, Erik Israelsson and Isak Jansson.
We’ve got the feeling that Östersunds FK could find themselves struggling to find the net against this Kalmar FF side who we reckon should be able to grind out a win.
We’re therefore predicting a good tussle with a 0-1 victory for Kalmar FF at full-time.
Should be an interesting one.
