Malmo vs Eskilstuna Prediction & Match Preview

Malmo vs Eskilstuna
Swedish Allsvenskan
Date: Saturday, 25 May 2019
Kick-Off 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Swedbank Stadion (Malmo).

Malmo host Eskilstuna in what should be a one-way street for them from the very start of the game on Saturday afternoon at Swedbank Stadion.

Di Blae had a disappointing campaign in the previous term of Allsvenskan when they came only third at the end of the season, but they look determined to regain the crown this time around.

Uwe Rosler, the former Fleetwood Town manager, got off to a flying start with Malmo in the 2019 Allsvenskan campaign.

The hosts sit at the very top of the standings with 21 points from 10 matches and they will have a great opportunity to retain the leading spot after this weekend given AFC Eskilstuna are the team set to make the trip to Swedbank Stadion.

The visitors returned to the top flight this season, but only to make it a one-year spell of loan there, according to a rather slow start to the campaign.

They claimed only six points so far in the season which sees them sitting second from bottom with a single-point cushion on last-placed Falkenberg.

Malmo vs Eskilstuna: Head-to-head

Interestingly, Eskilstuna have always been unpleasant opposition to Malmo.

The visitors won three of four head to head meetings between the two sides.

There were at least four goals scored in two H2H affairs back in the 2017 Allsvenskan campaign as teams snatched a win apiece along the way.

Malmo vs Eskilstuna: Prediction

Eskilstuna are the only team without a single point on the road in this term of Allsvenskan. They lost each of five away fixtures with a goal difference of 4-12 in the process.

They’ve really struggled for goals lately and will come into this having scored only twice in past six league outings.

Di Blae, on the other hand, own the best defensive record in the league after ten rounds. They shipped just three goals in five home outings (four wins and a draw – 12-3 goal difference).

Rosler has competition’s second top scorer in his ranks in the likes of Markus Rosenberg who bagged six goals so far in the season.

A comprehensive home win to nil has to be the way to go here.
