Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
Following a routine 2-0 win over Trelleborg in a warm-up game, Malmo will look to stay in the title race when they take on Helsingborg on Monday evening. The Blues defeated Degerfors 2-0 on the road before the international break, and they are seen as hot favourites to beat Helsingborg in front of home fans. Both Adi Nalic and Niklas Moisander are sidelined with injuries, but Oscar Lewicki should recover in time to face the Red ones.
Helsingborg, on the other hand, are not playing an important role in the Swedish top flight anymore, with the team collecting only five points in total to date this season. The rock-bottom side are on a four-match losing run in Allsvenskan, and seeing that Malmo are a real force to be reckoned with at home, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise. As for the visiting team, all Sumar Almadjed, Wilhelm Loeper, and Victor Blixt are out of contention with injuries.
