Malmoe FF vs Elfsborg Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Monday night (18:00) game will have big implications in the race to become the Allsvenskan champions. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Malmö were restricted to just a point last time out as they were held by Östersunds 2-2 despite twice taking the lead. Their goalscorers in this game were Erdal Rakip and Oscar Lewicki. Elfsborg also drew their last game 2-2 as they were held at home by Djurgården who are chasing Malmö in the title race. They twice fought back to claim a point with goals from Viktor Prodell and Issam Jebali (penalty). The last meeting between this pair came early in May and the visiting Malmö side came out on top 2-1 thanks to goals from Pawel Cibicki and jo Inge Berget while Viktor Prodell netted for Elfsborg. It continues a recent pattern that has seen Malmö win each of their last three clashes and go unbeaten in the last six.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Malmö should win this one but nerves are a funny thing and I would not want to be backing them to do so at such a short price though it is hard to make a case for an Elfsborg side with little to play for. Elfsborg are though capable of goals, they netted two against Djurgården last time out and then two against Kalmar recently. I will take a little punt on them to go over 1.5 goals in a game where the pressure is off. Another bet I like is Erdal Rakip each-way in the first goalscorer market who has three in the last two and seven in the last ten and goes off at generous double-figure odds here.

Malmoe FF Preview

Going into this round of fixtures Malmö were seven points clear but if Djurgården win on Sunday then the gap could be down to four. It is now just one victory from their last five in the league with just five points taken from a possible 15. At home, the form has been better with four victories and two defeats from their last six and just one defeat all season. Goals are a feature of these ties with nine of the last ten going over 2.5 goals and five of the last six going over 3.5. Erdal Rakip is in good goalscoring form with three in the last two and seven in the last ten in all competitions. Around 70% of their league goals have come in the second-half with around 55% coming in the last 30 minutes.

Malmoe FF Team News

Magnus Eikrem (ankle) is a doubt while Luis Felipe (Achilles) is out for the season.

Elfsborg Preview

Ahead of the weekend action Elfsborg sat comfortably in ninth place with no danger of relegation but no hope of Europe. They are now without a victory in three but two of those have been draws. On the road, they have taken just two points from their last four and just 11 of their 32 this season. Just 17 of the 42 goals that they have scored have come on their travels. Viktor Prodell has found the net in two of his last three while Issam Jebali ended a run of five without scoring last time out. Around 50% of the goals they have netted in the league have come in the opening 15 minutes or the closing 15.

Elfsborg Team News

Jesper Manns is ruled out through suspension while Samuel Holman (calf), Joakim Nilsson (foot) and Lasse Nilsson (unknown) are all doubts.
