Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
There will be fireworks when Djurgarden, the title holders, and Malmo, the league leaders, face each other in the Allsvenskan derby on Monday evening. Djurgarden have slim chances of defending their trophy, but they are still in the race for a place in European competitions. The capital club do not seem to be at the top of their game, but the match against Malmo could be the turning point for the reigning champions.
The Blues, on the other hand, are on the right track to regain the domestic trophy. Malmo head into the match following back-to-back wins over Hacken and Kalmar, but they should be happy with one point from the Tele2 Arena clash. A close encounter is on the cards in the Allsvenskan derby, and we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of their previous four meetings in the Swedish top flight.
Highlighted Team (Malmo):
Founded on February 24, 1910, Malmo are a Swedish team that compete in Allsvenskan league. The Blues welcome their rivals at Stadion, Malmo, the venue which was opened in April, 2009. It is important to note that the stadium can hold up to 22,500 supporters of which 18,000 are seated.
Malmo are the most successful Swedish side, with the team winning their 23rd domestic trophy in 2017. The Blues finished the season seven points clear of AIK, scoring 63 goals and conceding 27 in the process. Speaking of the club’s European success, Malmo did well to make it to the European Cup final in the 1978/1979 season, but they eventually failed to win the trophy.
The Swedish side were beaten by Nottingham Forest in the title game (0-1), with Trevor John Francis scoring the only goal of the match. Malmo wear sky-blue shirts and white shorts when playing at home, whereas their away colour is black.
