Malmo FF vs IFK Goteborg
Date: Monday, 7 May 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Swedbank Stadion, Malmo.
The defending champions got off to somewhat of a shaky start to the new Allsvenskan campaign as they sit six points shy of table-toppers AIK after six rounds. The Blues shockingly fell 3-0 away at Kalmar last weekend, but they managed to bounce back on Thursday evening beating Djurgarden 1-0 in front of the home fans at Swedbank Stadion. Striker Carlos Strandberg made the difference bagging his first goal of the season four days ago.
Can the hosts make it back-to-back wins on Monday when they are about to play IFK Goteborg in the capital? The visitors also play hot and cold at the start of the campaign, hut they generally tend to struggle on travels where they lost two in a row to the likes of Ostersunds FK and AIK.
Malmo vs Goteborg: Head-to-head
Malmo have the chance to make it all square at 18 wins for each of the sides with a three-poi ter here.
The two teams locked horns in the Svenska Cupen quarterfinal in March when Malmo FF took a 1-0 victory in front of the home crowd.
Both teams scored in three subsequent H2H games before the mentioned cup tie.
Malmo vs Goteborg: Prediction
The quality is no doubts on Malmo’s side and the hosts should really be able to clinch the much-needed victory to stay in touch with the likes of AIK and Hammarby at the top of the standings. Given they will be up against an outfit which lost two straight games on the road, conceding twice in each of these matches, we can hardly suggest anything else but the home win, set at the 1.50 odds here.
Markus Rosenberg has been the standout performer for the hosts so far in the season, netting three goals in six appearances. You can back the experienced Swedish striker to score anytime here at the odds of 2.20.
