Malmo vs Elfsborg Prediction & Match Preview

Malmo vs Elfsborg
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Sunday, 30 August 2020
Kick-Off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Eleda Stadion (Malmö).

The two teams at the top of the table will face each other this Sunday. The home side has a seven-point lead over Elfsborg at present. Malmo has lost only one game this season and has 11 wins in 17 games. Also, no other team has been more ruthless in attacking than the former champions. Not only have they scored the most number of goals they have also kept discipline in defense.
The away team is on a dream run this season. They were eighth last season and with eight wins in 17 matches they are second right now. But they have a long way to go and improve so as to stay there until the end. But due to silly mistakes at the back, they have seven draws which have increased the gap with the top spot.

Malmo vs Elfsborg: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Malmo has four wins and a loss in the last five meetings with this opposition.
  • More than 2.5 goals were scored in three of those five games across all venues.
  • The home side is on a four-match winning streak against the Yellow Ones at this ground.
  • They have never lost any of the last six competitive clashes here.
  • Both sides found the back of the net in the majority of their games here.

Malmo vs Elfsborg: Prediction

The hosts are the only team to not lose a home match so far. To make matters worse for the Yellow ones, the home team has won all the last five home games on the trot. The head to head games at this ground in recent years were also dominated by the Sky Blue. So it is pretty easy to say that Malmo is the favorites to win on Sunday.

Even though Malmo has kept an impressive performance at the back, they have conceded in three recent home games. On the other hand, the visitors have scored in four of their last five matches on the road. In fact, they have scored two or more goals in three of those fixtures away from home. So I am backing the home team to win with both teams netting goals.
