The 2013 Allsvenskan season’s third-placed team Malmo FF’s Swedbank Stadion is set to be visited by the 10th-placed BK Hacken this Thursday when the two rivals will play their Round 14 match of the campaign.
Malmo, who are just two points away from reaching the summit of the league table, could topple the leaders IFK Gothenburg by winning this upcoming match although they could lose that top spot the very next day. After a decent start to the season, Malmo had lost their way a bit, failing to win any of their six games between April and May.
However, they have since regained their composure and are currently riding a three-match winning streak. All of those three wins were close though. In their most recent outing, Di blåe defeated Elfsborg 2-1 at home.
Meanwhile, Hacken have been desperately fighting for some consistency for virtually the entire season. They last managed to achieve consecutive wins or even same results in two consecutive games back in March. Since then they have been extremely unpredictable, and it seems that their results are coming out of the roll of the dice.
These two met twice last season in the league. In their first meeting Hacken, playing at their home, thrashed Malmo 5-0 while the reverse fixture ended in a 0-0 draw. Malmo didn’t get to take the revenge of that embarrassing defeat last year, but they are in better form this time around, and it’s once again their home, which is why the recommended bet here is to back Malmo FF for an outright win with Pinnacle Sports at odds of 1.78.
