Malmo Preview – Can Malmo gain 1st leg lead?

Malmo will be brimming with confidence ahead of this upcoming 1st leg clash in the 2nd qualifying round of the Champions League against Finnish outfit, HJK, having not only disposed of Latvian side, Riga, in the previous round of this competition but also a resounding 5-0 win away at Degerfors in the domestic Allsvenskan.

Malmo have put together some impressive results of late including the 2-1 aggregate win against Riga in the 1st qualifying round of the Champions League along with a 4-0 home win over Sirius in the Allsvenskan, so the hosts look in good shape here.

The hosts are also unbeaten in their last eight Champions League ties overall, winning four and drawing four, while at their Eleda Stadion, Malmo are unbeaten in their last five ties as well.

Our betting suggestion:

HJK Preview – Can HJK return to winning ways?

A disappointing 2-1 defeat away from home at Oulu in the Finnish domestic top flight on the weekend ended HJK’s previous impressive 11-match winning streak in all competitions, but they too will be in confident mood after sweeping aside Montenegro side, Buducnost, in the previous round of the Champions League qualifiers.

HJK registered a comprehensive 7-1 aggregate win over Buducnost to book their place in this 2nd qualifying round of the competition but they face a tough 1st leg trip to Sweden to face Malmo whose season is in full swing and the hosts currently top of the Allsvenskan.

Mind you, HJK also sit top of the Finnish Veikkausliiga at the moment and they’ve won their last three Champions League ties on the trot but they’ve won just three of their last 11 ties on the road at this level.
