Team News: Östersunds FK
Looking at personnel, there is just the sole fitness concern for the Östersunds FK manager Amir Azrafshan to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed group of players. Rewan Amin (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will miss out.
It looks as if Östersunds may well make use of the 4-3-3 formation for this one with Aly Keita, Kalpi Ouattara, Thomas Isherwood, Eirik Haugan, Noah Sonko Sundberg, Blair Turgott, Charlie Colkett, Isak Ssewankambo, Nebiyou Perry, Francis Baptiste and Henrik Bellman.
Team News: Örebro SK
Thanks to a completely healthy group ready to go, Örebro SK manager Axel Kjäll has zero fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this clash.
We are inclined to think that Örebro could decide to begin the game with a 4-4-2 lineup, giving starts to Oscar Jansson, Albin Granlund, Andreas Skovgaard, Michael Almebäck, Kevin Wright, Martin Broberg, Johan Mårtensson, Nordin Gerzic, Jake Larsson, Nahir Besara and Deniz Hummet.
We’re of the view that Örebro SK and Östersunds FK could well end up finding themselves level here, with both teams capable of netting.
A draw looks like a realistic possibility, but we’ll see what happens. We’re therefore seeing a very close game with a 1-1 scoreline at the end of this one.
