Goteborg Prediction

Goteborg have made a solid start to their new Allsvenskan season as they sit in 5th place and are just one point behind their visitors, Malmo, who sit top of the Allsvenskan prior to Thursday night’s action.

Goteborg’s season actually started with 2 defeats from their opening 3 matches of the new season with losses to AFC Eskilstuna (3-1 away) and Djurgarden (2-1 away), but the hosts have since bounced back in style by collecting 4 wins from their subsequent 5 matches with wins against Helsingborg, AIK, Sirius and Norrkoping.

This improved run of form has lifted Goteborg up into 5th place and they’ll be looking to record a 4th win on the trot when Malmo come to town this evening. Indeed, all three points here would see Goteborg move top of the Allsvenskan.

The hosts have won their last 3 home matches on the trot, handing them an early impressive 100% winning record at home with stats of 3-0-0 9/1, with their forward trio of Karlsson-Lagemyr and Nygren (4 goals apiece) along with Kharaishvili (3 goals) getting amongst the goals early on.

Malmo Prediction

Swedish top flight league leaders, Malmo, will make their way over to Goteborg having suffered just 1 defeat from their first 9 matches of the new Swedish season, which was a 3-1 loss away at GIF Sundsvall.

However, the visitors have won 3 of their first 4 home matches of this new campaign and they bring an unbeaten 6-match sequence into this clash on Thursday night where Malmo will be looking to further extend their lead at the top of the division.

Recent wins against Ostersunds, Sirius, Hammarby, Falkenberg and Elfsborg have helped lift Malmo to the summit of the Allsvenskan while their away record reads a slightly more modest looking 2-1-1 5/5 which includes wins at bottom half clubs, Sirius and Falkenberg, but also a loss at Sundsvall and a draw at Norrkoping, both of whom also sit in the bottom half of the Allsvenskan.

The result of this clash therefore may not be quite as clear-cut as many would imagine, and Malmo will do well to put an end to a confident Goteborg 3-match winning streak on the road here.


Key-Facts – Goteborg v Malmo
