Malmo Prediction – Can Malmo use home surroundings?

Despite winning 6 of their last 7 matches in all competitions, Malmo’s arguably most important match in recent times ended in defeat as they were handed a 1-0 loss away from home at Dynamo Kiev on Matchday 1 of this season’s Europa League.

Malmo will therefore be determined to avoid a second defeat on the trot in Group B on Thursday night when they entertain Copenhagen at their Swedbank Stadion, and having recorded the aforementioned 6 wins overall in recent times, the hosts will be in fairly confident mood here.

7 wins out of the last 9 matches in all competitions at their Swedbank Stadion should also ensure a positive display from tonight’s hosts, as well as winning their last 4 home ties in the Europa League on the trot with victories over Ballymena United, Domzale, Zrinjski and Bnei Yehuda.

These last 4 matches have seen Malmo score a total of 16 goals, while 10 of their last 15 home ties in this competition have seen over 2.5 goals scored. Goals have been fairly flowing overall, with the likes of midfielders Rieks and Christiansen (8 goals apiece) along with forwards Rosenberg (11 goals), Antonsson and Molins (6 goals apiece) in Malmo’s attacking personnel.

Copenhagen Prediction – Can Copenhagen retain top spot?

The Danish visitors started their Europa League Group B campaign in promising fashion as they secured a valuable 3 points on Matchday 1 with a 1-0 home win against Swiss outfit, Lugano, and they bring a 4-match unbeaten run into this important Matchday 2 clash in Sweden.

Recent wins against Lugano in the Europa League along with a DBU Pokalen cup win against Hillerod and a 4-2 home win over Silkeborg in the Danish Superliga will have the visitors in confident mood of grabbing a result here which would retain their position at the top of Group B.

Results away from home haven’t all gone Copenhagen’s way though as they’ve recently suffered a 3-match losing streak which saw the visitors lose at Riga in the Europa League qualifying rounds, as well as back-to-back losses in the Superliga at Aalborg and Hobro.

Switch to results on the road in the Europa League and you’ll find that Copenhagen have collected just 4 away wins out of their last 13 ties on their travels in this competition, which makes the straight win market a dangerous proposition.

Copenhagen possess some dangerous attacking personnel of their own though in the shape of forwards Wind (5 goals), N’Doye (4 goals) and former Arsenal striker, Bendtner, so they stand a decent chance of hitting the back of the net tonight.


Key-Facts – Malmo v Copenhagen

  • 10 of Malmo’s last 15 home ties in this competition have seen over 2.5 goals
  • Copenhagen are unbeaten in their last 4 matches in all competitions
  • Copenhagen have won the last two meetings against Malmo (both at home)


Betting Tips Verdict

This is expected to be an entertaining affair between both teams that need all 3 points, and we could see a few goals here at great value odds.
