Falkenberg vs Malmo
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Sunday, 9 August 2020
Kick-off at 13:30 UK/ 14:30 CET
Venue: Falcon Alkoholfri Arena (Falkenberg).
Malmo FF will come in hot with their winning streak in the league at the top of the table. It will be hard for Falkenberg, near to the relegation zone in the table, to contain the visitor’s attack after struggling in the campaign lately.
Hans Eklund and his men have only one win in their last 12 fixtures (1W 5D 6L) across all major competitions. However, they are unbeaten in the last five matches in the schedule, following a 1-1 draw on the road against Hammarby last time out in the league.
Aiming for their lost title last season, the runners-up will try to get it this season. The visitor has been unbeaten in their last nine clashes across all major contests, with a six-game winning streak in their league schedule this season.
The host is yet to win a clash at home in the campaign this season so far. Meanwhile, ‘The Blue Ones’ have lost only one of their six away fixtures until now. Moreover, they will visit after a massive 4-1 win at home against Helsingborg in the last match.
Falkenberg vs Malmo Head-to-head (h2h)
- The visitor has been unbeaten in all their meetings since 2014.
- Five of Di Blae’s eight overall wins came at home.
- Only one of their recent five fixtures saw both teams score.
- Their previous encounter gave a 5-0 home in for ‘The Blue Ones’.
- The teams have averaged 4.3 goals in their overall clashes.
Falkenberg vs Malmo Prediction
With their winning streak, Malmo seems a little invincible for the rest of the teams, especially against a weaker side like Falkenberg who has taken an early trip down the league table.
Besides, Jon Dahl Tomasson will lead a team that has not lost to the host in all their h2h meetings since 2014. The away win will probably be the best bet for the punters in the clash.
The teams have met nine times until now, and all but two of those clashes have produced at least 3 goals in each game. So, expect a high-scoring affair in ninety minutes.
