Player to watch: Isaac Thelin

As well as Botheim, Isaac Thelin put up a solid performance in Malmo's recent win against Kalmar, registering a goal and an assist. He's currently the joint top-scorer in the Allsvenskan with eight goals in 10 league games.

Interestingly, the Swedish forward also has a great track record against Tuesday's opponents, as he scored three times in the last four skirmishes between these outfits. It'll be interesting to see how he matches up against Elfsborg's defenders.
