Malmo are so used to dominating Swedish football that last year’s third spot would have hurt. They are attempting to put that right and will be looking for another three points against Sirius on Sunday.

Malmo Preview – Are Malmo set for another win and maintain their lead at the top?

There’s no question that Malmo have been the dominant force in Swedish football over this last decade. It’s five title wins in the last nine years so finishing third in 2018 was certainly not part of the plan. The club went through three managers during the campaign with Uwe Rosler appointed just over a year ago. The German was always building towards this season and the turnaround has been apparent in the first half of the season. Malmo sit top of the league, four points clear of last year’s champions AIK. There’s still an awful lot of football left to play but the signs are positive. With 16 games played, Rosler’s team have lost just the once. That defeat came in just their second game of the season after drawing their opening match. It would have been worrying signs at that time but their consistency since has been impressive.

Five wins in their last seven has seen them go clear at the top and confidence will be growing. It could have been even better had they managed to hold the lead away to Djurgarden, but a draw on the road against a fellow title challenger is not the worst of results. Malmo also progressed through to the next round of the Europa League following an 11-0 aggregate win over Ballymena. They are bound to be tested much more when facing Domzale in the next round.

Sirius Preview – Can Sirius continue good away form and surprise league leaders?

Sirius are one of the smaller clubs in the Swedish top-flight but they have held their own in the Allsvenskan over the past few years. Current head coach Henrik Rydstrom has only been in charge for this season but they are proving competitive once again. The club are in 10th spot at the moment and six points clear of the relegation zone. Survival is most certainly their ultimate aim for each season and they are well placed for that at the moment. The bottom six or seven clubs are so tightly packed, however, that there remains plenty of scope for that situation changing. Their recent form is encouraging enough though, and have proven through the season they are capable of picking up points.

There in something of a strange position that they are one of just two teams who have picked up more wins on the road than at home. Heading into tomorrow’s game and Sirius have won two of their last three on the road. The pick of those coming against Norrkoping when winning 1-0. Malmo is another step up from that again but they are definitely capable of springing a surprise.

Key-Facts – Malmo v Sirius

  • This is Uwe Rosler’s first full season in charge and his team have started strongly following a disappointing third place finish last year
  • Sirius may be one of the less glamorous teams in the Swedish top league but they have a habit of being stubborn opponents
  • Malmo have a terrific record in this fixture and have won five of the last six meetings between the two

Malmo v Sirius Betting Advice

It won’t come as too much of a surprise to note that Malmo have dominated this fixture since Sirius were promoted to the top division in 2016. Of their six competitive meetings in that time the current league leaders have won five of them – scoring 19 goals in the process. Their earlier meeting this season was much closer, however, when a solitary Soren Rieks goal proving the difference. Sirius will be hoping that they can be as competitive as that once again as opposed to their last visit to Malmo when they were thumped for five.

Malmo’s home record is incredibly strong this season with seven wins from their eight league games. That’s a record that has returned 21 goals for and just five conceded, so it’s going to be an uphill task for the visitors. Sirius are very well organised, and that particularly applies on their travels. They have conceded only five goals away from home this season, but scored just six as well. Malmo should prevail but it may well be tight and I like the home team to win without conceding.
