Malmo vs NK Lokomotiva
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 24 September 2020
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Eleda Stadion.
Lokosi had finished second in the Croatian top flight the last season, but have made a mess of their campaign this time around so far. Currently they are placed second from last, and they have conceded the most number of goals of all the teams in contest as well.
In fact, disregarding their single win which had come against Rijeka, they have a 100% winless record in the 2020-21 in the First Football League.
Meanwhile, the Blue Ones have simply been on fire lately, and have set sights on the Swedish title this season.
They are also at home, and a win this match-day would take them further closer to the coveted Europa League qualification. Likely, expect the in-form Malmo to overcome the struggling Lokomotiva.

- Only once have these two teams locked horns with each other, and then spoils were shared with a 1-1 scorecard. The game had taken place three years back.
Malmo vs NK Lokomotiva: Prediction
Jon Dahl Tomasson’s men were unbeaten in 26 of their previous 28 overall match-ups, and they had scored two or more goals in 12 of their former 17 games. In the process, they had also recorded two separate four-game winning streaks.
At home, they are on a fourteen-fixture unbeaten run, and barring a single Europa League loss against Wolfsburg in February of 2020, they are completely unbeaten at this stadium in the past 12-month period.
On the other hand, their opposite number were winless in eight of their preceding ten fixtures, and they had also lost five of their last seven games. Away from home, they have a single win in their past eight road trips, and have conceded a total of ten goals from their last three such matches alone.
Suffice it to say that Tomasson’s men are clicking and are the in-form team, while their counterparts are struggling.
As such, expect Malmo to record an impressive win this Thursday at the Eleda Stadion.
