Team News: Västerås SK
There’s just one fitness concern for the Västerås SK boss Thomas Askebrand to be concerned with thanks to an otherwise robust squad. Pedro Ribeiro (Calf Injury) will miss out.
Team News: Östers IF
With a completely injury-free group to choose from, Östers IF boss Denis Velic doesn’t have any fitness worries to speak of ahead of this game.
Östers IF have it within them to breach the defence of this Västerås SK outfit, but it realistically won’t prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We’re going for both teams to score in a 2-1 advantage for Västerås SK after 90 minutes. Should be a good one.
