Norrkoping vs Malmo FF
Date: 16th October 2017
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Norrkoping and Malmo FF are set to wrap up the super interesting round in Allsvenskan on Monday evening when they are set to take on each other at Ostgotaporten.
The victory would see the visitors mathematically securing the new silverware with three games to play, but Peking are desperate for points to stay in touch for Europa League spots.
Jens Gustafsson’s side has been playing a solid football over the last couple of weeks, but the signs of good form came a bit too late for Peking who are 14 points behind Malmo FF at the top of the standings.
Norrkoping’s ambitions of repeating the last year’s success and catching the third position suffered a huge blow with a shocking 2-1 defeat to the rock-bottomed Halmstad three weeks ago.
Peking, however, did manage to bounce back beating Hammarby 0-2 on the road before the international break with goals from Jakobsen and Thorarinsson.
The reigning champions eased their way to the landmark 20th Allsvenskan title as only a miracle can move them away from the top of the standings in the last four games of the season.
Magnus Pehrsson’s men will come into the game with Norrkoping in high spirits after snatching three wins and a draw in last four matches having notched at least two goals in each of the fixtures during the run.
Norrkoping vs Malmo FF: Head to head
Malmo FF enjoy a better overall head to head record and they have won three on the trot against Norrkoping, but Beijing came on top in their previous H2H encounter.
Peking stunned Malmo FF with two late goals through Daniel Sjolund and Kalle Holmberg (their top scorer) in mid-May this year at Swedbank Stadion.
Norrkoping vs Malmo FF: Prediction
Even though the hosts are desperate for points here, we must stick to Malmo FF as both quality and the form speak in their favour.
