Malmo vs Bnei Yehuda Tel Aviv
Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 22 August 2019
Kick-off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Swedbank Stadion (Malmö).
Malmo are currently leading the pack in the Allsvenskan and have succumbed to a loss just once in their last twelve games across all competitions. The home team pulled off an emphatic 5-0 win over Falkenbergs in the domestic league in the weekend, while their last clash in Europe saw them lose the second leg fixture against Zrinjski by a 1-0 scoreline in the previous round.
However, the tie was settled well before that matchup as Malmo had already slotted three unanswered goals past them in their first leg encounter.
Bnei Yehuda Tel Aviv, on the other hand, survived a scare in their respective semi-final qualifiers with Neftci Baku. The visitors had their two-goal advantage cut in half in the dying minutes of the game and were able to do just enough to thwart their foes from finding a second.
With the away side struggling to ensure a winning run at the moment, it looks more than likely that Malmo will be walking away with the bragging rights in this one.

Malmo vs Bnei Yehuda Tel Aviv Prediction
The hosts have been putting their best foot forward in their clashes on home soil and have not lost here since early February. The squad have certainly been an indomitable side in their recent matchups as well, and have won without conceding in their last two games in a row while scoring eight in the process.
The away side saw out a draw in their most recent trip on the road. While they have been tasting success in four out their last five outings, it needs saying that they are no means on par with Malmo in terms of competitiveness or experience in the big stage.
Considering the stellar form that Malmo are on, along with home advantage under their belt, the Israeli outfit look far from ready to score past them, let alone pick up the win, especially in their backyard.
So, expect Malmo to be leading at the break and to clinch an easy win at the end of the ninety minutes.
