IFK Goteborg vs Malmo
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Sunday, 2 August 2020
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Gamla Ullevi (Göteborg).
IFK Gothenburg has been winless for the past six fixtures in the league, and if they don’t act on that soon, they will probably find themselves in the relegation zone. However, Poya Asbaghi’s men have minimized the point loss with draws, and the goalless draw on the road against Hacken last time out marked their fourth consecutive draw in the league schedule.
If it was not for the away loss against Elfsborg earlier, Malmo would have been unbeaten in all their clashes in the league. They are on a four-game winning streak, following a 2-5 win on the road against Sirius in their previous clash. With their ten points lead over the host in the table, The Blue Ones probably have nothing to worry about in their visit.
Goteborg vs Malmo Head-to-head (h2h)
- The visitor has recorded four of the last five overall wins.

- Only one of their recent five fixtures has ended in a draw.
- Since 2010, the host has been winless at home in all 10 clashes.
Goteborg vs Malmo Prediction
There are not many arguments against Malmo becoming the favorites to win in the match. Their winning streak in the campaign and the h2h dominance in visits for the last decade backs up the away win in the encounter.
Gothenburg’s home record in the league has also been rusty, and one win from 6 home matches is not the home ground advantage that you look for in a home team. Besides, Malmo hasn’t had many troubles on the road either this season.
Furthermore, The Blue Ones have been slow when facing Gothenburg in their h2h clashes. They also have an average of 1.9 goals in the league from 11 appearances. So, the tip for under 3.5 goals will play the best for the punters from the goals area.
