Djurgårdens IF boss Kim Bergstrand doesn’t have any fitness worries at all coming into this game with a fully healthy squad available for selection.
Team News: Malmö
Malmö boss Jon Tomasson has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Dusan Melicharek (Knee Problems), Rasmus Bengtsson (Knee Injury) and Johan Dahlin (Arm Injury) can’t be considered.
Our thinking is that Djurgårdens IF may not find it easy to see themselves scoring against this Malmö lineup who we think might be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
Therefore, we predict a very competitive encounter with a 0-1 winning margin for Malmö after 90 minutes.
Should be an interesting one.
