The best result that could be hoped for against this particular bridge by an SF force would be to damage it beyond use. The team is simply unable to carry enough explosives to destroy the structure.
Cratering the roadway/decking is likely to be the best approach however some minor structural damage might be possible if detailed plans of the bridge were available before time and engineers were able to assess the best possible locations for the limited charges.

A team of say ten men is still likely to only inflict enough damage to render the bridge impassable for maybe a few days. This might however be enough time for NATO to prepare a new defensive line or inflict significant damage by artillery and airstrikes.

Sometimes delay is all that's needed....
If it moves, shoot it, if not push it, if it still doesn't move, use explosives.

Nothing happens in isolation - it's called "the butterfly effect"
