Malmo vs Djurgarden
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Thursday, 3rd May 2018
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Swedbank Stadion (Malmo).
Last year’s Swedish champions Malmo go head-to-head with Djurgarden in the midweek’s Allsvenskan fixture.
The teams have already met once this season, at Djurgarden’s home fixture handing Malmo a 3-0 defeat.
Truth to be told, this has been a poor start to the campaign for Malmo by their usual standards. They already sit 6 points behind direct title rivals AIK. Only 2 wins came from their 6 games so far and most of their problems this far has been on the road. They are coming on the back of another heavy 3-0 defeat, this time away at Kalmar.
On the other hand, Djurgarden are level on 8 points with Malmo. They too lost their weekend fixture, but at home to Hammarby. Their only positive in the campaign so far is the convincing win against their Thursday’s hosts on matchday 4.
Malmo vs Djurgarden Head-to-head
Malmo won 4 of their last 6 meetings with Djurgarden.
Djurgarden had won just once in their last 9 visits to Malmo, 2 draws and 6 loss.
Eight of their last 10 h2h meetings at the Swedbank Stadion saw both teams scoring.
Malmo vs Djurgarden Prediction
Things are simply not working for Malmo at the moment and they are desperate for a win here to put the season back on track. Head-coach Magnus Pehrsson knows well that positive results in this kind of matches can quickly turnaround team’s morale.
Djurgarden are running on similar tracks like their Thursday’s hosts and come with a poor record at the Swedbank Stadion. I believe Malmo could pull a narrow win here.
