Malmo FF vs Dalkurd
Date: Sunday, 27 May 2018
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Swedbank Stadion, Malmo.
Malmo host Dalkurd in a must-win match on Sunday afternoon at Swedbank Stadion. The reigning champions got off to a horrendous start to the new Allsvenskan campaign which brought parting ways with the head coach Magnus Pehrsson as a result. Daniel Andersson was appointed to be the new manager after the shocking 1-0 loss to relegation strugglers Trelleborg, but he had a very challenging task on his debut on the bench as the Blues had to play table-toppers Hammarby.
Andersson lost his maiden match on the bench, but the team showed plenty of positives in a 3-2 loss and a comfortable 2-0 victory over Hacken was no surprise whatsoever. The win definitely instilled the much-needed confidence into Malmo’s players who will head into Sunday’s clash with Dalkurd in much higher spirits aiming to pick up a three-pointer which could get help them break back into the top half of the league ladder.
Malmo FF vs Dalkurd: Head-to-head
This will be the first H1H encounter between these two sides in the league, following Dalkurd’s maiden appearance in the top flight of the Swedish football.
They locked horns in February this year in the early stages of the Svenska Cupen when the Blues edges past Dalkurd 1-0 at Swedbank Stadion.
Malmo FF vs Dalkurd: Prediction
Dalkurd shocked Ostersunds 3-0 at home in the second round, but they soon started to feel the strength of a higher division football taking no more than a single point in the following seven contests. Such streak dropped them down to the very bottom of the league standings and we just can’t imagine the scenario in which the team led by Azrudin Valentic could stun the highly-motivated champions here.
Malmo are massive favourites and we expect them to go strong and be in full control from the get go. The home win is a huge banker, but you won’t get rick with the 1.30 odds which is why we’d suggest backing Malmo FF to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at the odds of 1.95. You can alternatively chase the Blues to win by two or more goals difference at 2.05.
