Football – Europe – Europa League Betting Tips

Group I sees a clash between Sweden and Norway as Malmo take on Sarpsborg at the Swedbank Stadion with the hosts looking to get a step ahead of the competition for a place in the knockout rounds.

Malmo bring an eight match unbeaten run in all competitions into this important Europa League tie which includes a 2-0 win over Besiktas in Group I as well as Swedish Allsvenskan wins over Hammarby, Orebro and IFK Goteborg.

The Swedish club also possess a reasonably strong run of form on home turf in this competition as they’re undefeated in their last six matches which also includes five clean sheets. Along with a solid defence is Malmo’s potent goal threat up front which consists of a forward trio of Rosenberg (12 goals), Antonsson (7 goals) and Strandberg (7 goals).

Sarpsborg also sit on four points as they make their way over to Malmo for this intriguing Group I encounter having recorded a 3-1 win over Genk at home and earning a point in a 1-1 draw with tonight’s opponents, Malmo.

However, both of these recent results were gained at their Sarpsborg Stadion while their one away match during this group phase ended in a disappointing 3-1 loss away at bottom club, Besiktas. Sarpsborg have lost three of their last four on the road at this level with defeats at St Gallen, Maccabi Tel Aviv and the aforementioned Besiktas.

The visitors also possess a much weaker European pedigree than their hosts, Malmo, and this could come to the fore in this clash as they now have to play Malmo in their own backyard along with their potent attacking force.

My betting tips therefore advise a home win for Malmo here.
