Sirius vs Malmo FF
Date: Saturday, 7 July 2018
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Studenternas IP, Uppsala.
Allsvenskan is back in action after a summer break as the defending champions Malmo FF are looking for a brand new start upon making the much-needed managerial change. The former Fleetwood Town boss Uwe Rosler took charge of Malmo who shockingly sit at the 10th position after 12 rounds of the competition in the top flight of the Swedish football.
Rosler is about to make his official debut on the bench on Saturday afternoon when the Sky Blues travel to Uppsala to take on the rock-bottomed Sirius.
The hosts enjoyed a decent campaign in the previous term of Allsvenskan, but they picked up no more than five points in 12 games in the new season.
Interestingly, such a dreadful kick off did not cause the change on the bench as team owners clearly believe in Kim Bergstrand (Sirius’ boss since 2011).
Sirius vs Malmo FF: Head-to-head
- Malmo won three and drew one of four head to head games against Sirius.
- The Sky Blues bagged as many as seven goals in last two league ties against the Blue-Black.
- Malmo took a demolishing 0-4 victory when these two sides last met each other in October 2017.
Sirius vs Malmo FF: Prediction
Malmo produced decent showings in string checks against Molde and Midtjylland in mid-season friendlies and the reigning champions truly do set to get their campaign up and running under the new manager.
The opposition is an ideal for Rosler to clinch a victorious start as Sirius have definitely been the weakest team in the league so far in the season.
The away win thus seems to be a banker bet worth backing with high stakes at the 1.53 odds. We expect the champions to try and find the breakthrough as early into the game as possible which is why the HT/FT Malmo/Malmo bet looks attractive at 2.20.
You can also obviously back the visitors to win by at least two goals difference at the odds of 2.35.
Sirius vs Malmo FF: Bet Tips
- HT/FT Malmo/Malmo @ 2.20
- Malmo -1.5 handicap @ 2.35.
