Thanks to a completely injury-free squad available for selection, Varbergs BoIS boss Joakim Persson has no fitness worries to speak of ahead of this match.
We believe Varbergs could decide to begin the game with a 4-4-2 lineup, going with Stojan Lukic, Keanin Ayer Boya, Jon Birkfeldt, Joakim Lindner, Hampus Zackrisson, Gustaf Norlin, Robin Book, Luke Le Roux, Adama Fofana, Junes Barny and Astrit Seljmani.
We envisage that Varbergs BoIS will surely be able to break down this Mjällby AIF side, although that probably shouldn’t be as many as the goals that they could concede.
