Malmo vs Helsingborg
Sweden – Allsvenskan
Date: Wednesday, 5 August 2020
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Swedbank Stadion.
The former champions have been falling short in the title race since 2017. They came so close last year to a record 24th title but fell short by a point to champions Djurgarden.
After 12 matches this year they are at the top of the table with just a point between them and closest rivals Norrkoping. This is too close to comfort, so they have to keep winning to keep the rivals at bay.
The Red ones have fallen into relegation after a handful of matches. They had a comparatively great season when they finished 10th last time around.
From 12 games they have only one win and lost 4 in return. Like most teams at the bottom half, they are more into drawing this season.
Malmo vs Helsingborg: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The hosts are on a three-match winning run against this opposition.
- They have four wins and a loss in five previous head to head games.
- More than 2.5 goals were scored in three of those five games.
- The hosts have won all three recent head to head games at this ground.
- They netted at least three or more goals in two of those three games.
- The Blue Ones are yet to lose at home this season.
Malmo vs Helsingborg: Prediction
The home team is one of the strongest teams in the country. The away team is in no way equipped enough to meet such a strong force.
With only one win so far, three points are out of the question for the visiting side. In terms of goals, we can expect a high scoring match this Wednesday.
In home matches, the hosts are scoring almost two goals per game. The head to head history also shows them scoring three goals in two recent meetings.
Even though the visitors have scored in back to back away games despite losing them, they will have a hard time breaking this home defense. They failed to score in three previous clashes with the Blues. So I am backing a final score with more than 2.5 goals and only one team scoring them.
