Mjallby started the new season very good.
They have five victories in the first eight rounds and currently occupy the fourth place on the table. Still, we have to mention that Mjallby had a good schedule and three wins came against other relegation candidates like Syrianska, Brommapojkarna and Gefle. In addition, one win was given them by the Federation decision, after the match with Djurgardens was abandon. Plus, it is important that Mjallby have big finance problems. Maybe that’s the reason why the club executive Thomas Andersson-Borestam left the club.
Malmo, meanwhile, are one of the candidates for the top. They are sharing the fourth place with Mjallby as both teams have 15 points. Malmo’s form could be described as good. They managed to beat Osters, AIK, Kalmar and Atvitaberg, while played draw with Halmstad, Goteborg and Norrkoping. Malmo was unbeaten until the last weekend, when they suffered a strange defeat from Djurgarden. They had a 2:1 lead until the 72nd minute. The situation became even better when Djurgarden midfielder Amartey received a red card. When everybody were expecting a routine victory for Malmo, they allowed the opponent to score two late goals.
I believe Malmo is closer to the victory. Even both teams have the same amount of points, the quality is on Malmo side. The striker Tokelo Rantie is in good form, he scored three goals on the last four matches. The players will be additionally motivated after the last defeat from Djurgarden and I am expecting to win at Strandvallen Stadium.
