Date: Monday, 25th September
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Swedbank Stadion, Malmo.
Reigning champions Malmo FF host Elfsborg on Monday afternoon at Swedbank Stadion. The two sides are in the similar form and they will be looking to grab the full prize and create some momentum ahead of the final quarter of the season.
The hosts are sitting atop the standings with 51 points earned and are seven points ahead of Djurgarden. However, since they have created the significant lead, they are unable to find the motivation recently and therefore they have only one win from the last five matches.
On the home turf, Malmo were beaten only once this season in addition to eight wins and two draws.
The visitors are sitting in the middle of the table with 32 points earned. They are nine points clear from the relegation zone, so they are also facing motivational problems. In the last five outings in the Swedish top flight, they have won only one match.
They hosted Djurgarden recently and snatched a point in the 2-2 which helped Malmo FF preserve their lead despite their poor form.
