A month’s break has been beneficial for Hacken and they restarted their campaign with a convincing 2-0 win over the Hammarby. They were resiliant on the day and gave minimal opportunities to their opponent while taking those came their way.

Hacken went into the mini break on a three match win-less streak and the win last week pushed them to the edge of the top half.

Home form is pretty decent for the Wasps with 3 wins and 2 draws coming from 7 matches, while losing in two. Also, 11 of the 14 goals scored so far this season came from home games.

Meantime, Malmo picked up from where they left off before going into the break at the start of June. They defeated the newly promoted side AFC Eskilstuna 3-2 at home to keep the good form going. But the head-coach Magnus Pehrsson will be furious after having conceded 2 goals against a side like AFC. Somehow, this is a season long problem as Malmo kept just 1 clean-sheet in their last 8 league games.

Malmo are unbeaten in away games this season and are arguably the best away side in the league. They picked 4 wins and 3 draws from 7 games so far and conceded just 4 goals in the process.
