Team News: IFK Norrköping
IFK Norrköping manager Jens Gustafsson will be happy not to have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this game owing to a fully injury-free squad available to select from.
Team News: AIK
Due to a fully injury-free squad to pick from, AIK manager Bartosz Grzelak has no fitness worries to speak of ahead of this match.
Our feeling is that AIK could find themselves struggling to break down this IFK Norrköping lineup who we think might well get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
That’s why our selection here is for a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 1-0 victory for IFK Norrköping when all is said and done.
Should be an interesting one.
