Lugano vs Malmo Prediction
It has not been a good run for FC Lugano in this season at both Europa League and their Swiss league games. Evidently, the host has won only two of the last ten fixtures in their overall schedule. They had four draws and losses each in the period. Also, the host had lost two of the last three clashes in their form until now.
Apart from that, the home team has won only three of the last 15 home matches in the run. Along with that, they have been winless in the last nine home clashes. Moreover, their previous home encounter leaving them with a 1-3 loss at the end to the likes of St. Gallen. Even so, their previous home match in the Europa League with Dynamo Kyiv had ended in a goalless draw. So, the chances of at least a point stay in the game.
However, the hosting side will be playing at a different home stadium. Even though they have been familiarized with the ground, they have not performed well at home. On the other hand, Malmoe FF has been running a decent form in their away matches so far in this season.
As such, the guest has lost only three of the last ten away fixtures in the season with two draws in it. Also, their away form in the Allsvenskan league is better in the overall run. Evidently, they have won the previous trip on the road against the likes of Orebro in their respective league. Although, their previous attempt away from home in Group B resulted in a loss to the likes of Dynamo Kyiv.
As the host has lost the previous h2h encounter with Malmoe, the chances of another win for the guest is not so far. Henceforth, it is safer to go with a double chance in the game.
