Malmo vs Sivasspor
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 18 August 2022
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Eleda Stadion.
Malmo are the current Swedish champions and they were on a roll all through the previous season. Meanwhile Sivasspor had to settle for a 10th place finish in the comparatively less glamorous Turkish top flight. They secured an entry into the Europa League playoffs only by lifting their domestic cup.
Sivasspor had remained winless in 24 of their total 38 league games and all through the stretch they had let in a total of 50 goals. They are also going through a rather poor stretch of performances lately and they are letting in goals in huge numbers as well.
In addition, they also are finding it hard to show any kind of dominance in away fixtures lately as well.
In the meantime, Malmo secured the title in Sweden after going through an intense title race. They had scored the most number of goals of all the teams in the competition and only one other team had let in fewer goals than them.
They have been on a good streak of results lately and particularly so in front of their home crowd.
By the looks of things, expect a victory for Malmo this Thursday at their home.
