Our prediction for this Sweden Allsvenskan match:
After rolling over Elfsborg 3-0 at Boras Arena, second-placed Malmo will be looking to melt Djurgarden’s advantage in the Allsvenskan standings with a victory over Helsingborg at their Swedbank Stadion. The Blues do not to give up on their title dream and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against the mid-table side on Matchday 25. Helsingborg are only five points clear of bottom three in the Allsvenskan table, but they should not be looking for points in matches against title-chasing teams.
In the first half of the season experienced attacker Marcus Rosenberg helped Malmo record a hard-fought 1-0 win over Helsingborg, meaning that the opposition back-line should have him at bay. Yet another man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Marcus Antonsson, who scored his sixth goal of the season in the 3-0 win over Elfsborg.
