Honved vs Malmo
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 17 September 2020
Kick-Off at 20.05 UK
Venue: Hidegkuti Nandor Stadion, Budapest.
One of the most interesting Europa League Round Two Qualifiers played this Thursday is taking place in the Hungarian capital Budapest where Honved welcomes Malmo FF. Both sides demonstrated fine form in the previous round.
Hungarian football is on the rise without a doubt – we recently witnessed Celtic FC getting defeated by Ferencvaros in UCL qualifiers, so Swedish side definitely shouldn’t underestimate the opposition.
Malmo are the favorites to win the match in regular time at 2.05 odds. Let’s take a look at recent form and results of these squads in domestic championships.
Honved vs Malmo Prediction
Budapest Honved are miles away from the form and results which granted them a spot in UEL last season. They are just one position from the bottom of table after collecting only three points from opening three matches.
Defending seems like a big issue at this point – the team conceded two goals against Puskas, three against MTK, two against Kisvarda and two to Diosgyor. Coach Tamas Bodog will surely have to change a lot of things to improve the stats. Honved were huge favorites in the first round against Inter Turku. That duel went to extra time where Hungarians scored the winning goal.
As for their opponents, Malmo FF are having troubles of their own despite being positioned really well in Allsvenskan. They are currently in semi-crisis after winning only two points from the last three domestic matches. The biggest threat for the home team is coming from Isaac Thelin who bagged nine goals so far.
So, to sum things up – hosts are conceding a lot of goals and rarely winning matches in their domestic league, while Malmo FF are having a great season. Swedes also defeated Cracovia in the first round without a lot of trouble. Away win is our pick here!
