Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
Malmo will be looking to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over AFC Eskilstuna when they host Goteborg at their Swedbank Stadion on Matchday 27. The Blues have been impressive at the back of late, with the team eyeing their sixth consecutive clean sheet in the national championship. Malmo are eager to overtake Djurgarden in top position in the Allsvenskan standings and we predict that they will go all guns blazing at Goteborg in Sunday’s football match.
The Angels, on the other hand, failed to find the net in previous two league fixtures and seeing that they head into the season finale with the lack of motivation, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. In their last meeting in the Swedish elite division Malmo crushed Goteborg 3-0, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the title-chasing team.
Highlighted Player (Jonas Knudsen):
Back in 2004 Jonas Knudsen of Denmark began his youth career at Hjerting IF. In 2006 he joined Esbjerg and he made his first-team debut for the club in a heavy 4-0 loss to Randers. Knudsen became the second youngest debutant in the history of the club and he stayed at the club until 2015.
The 185-cm-tall left back joined Ipswich Town on 31 July, 2015 and his deal with the Tractor Boys expires in 2018. Knudsen used to play for Denmark U18, U19, U20 and U21 teams in the past and he has four caps for the first team. Jonas Knudsen made 41 appearances for Ipswich town in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and he scored one goal for the club on his debut season.
The Danish international is well known for his long throws and journalists in England often compare him with Rory Delap. Knudsen was born on 16 September, 1992 in Esbjerg.
Highlighted Team (Goteborg):
IFK Goteborg are yet another successful Swedish club. The Anglarna won their 18th national championship in 2007, but that was their only trophy of the 21st century. IFK Goteborg clinched the UEFA Cup trophy on two occasions (1981/82 and 1986/87), with the team making it to the European Cup semis in both 1985/86 and 1992/1993 season.
Swedish striker Marcus Berg is one of the club’s most notable players. Berg played 53 games for the Anglarna, scoring 21 goals in the league for the club.
