Match Preview:

Malmo FF

Table leaders Malmo go head to head with Sirius in round 13 of the Allsvenskan at the Elada Stadion on Saturday. Malmo currently sit first, 2 points above second placed Elfsborg heading into the weekend. After an incredible start to the league winning 8 games in a row, Henrik Rydstrom’s side had a shaky end to May, dropping 5 points in 2 games, giving a ray of hope to the teams below them. The first obstacle came against Hacken, where an 86th minute own goal by Hammar salvaged a point for the league leaders. A week later, second placed Elfsborg recorded a convincing 3-0 victory over them, narrowing the gap between the teams.

However, back to back wins against Degerfors and Varnamo with an aggregate score of 8-1 helped Malmo revive and recover from the setback, placing them on top currently. Henrik Rydstrom has had a strong impact on the team, conceding the least number of goals, while having scored the second most number of goals in the league. They also remain unbeaten in the league at home so far and would be hoping to keep the same momentum ahead of Saturday’s game.

Sirius

Sirius on the other hand sit 11th in the table, with just 14 points in 12 games. However, they’ve been on a run of good form lately, winning three in a row in the league. Although, Christer Mattiasson’s side had a difficult start to the season, winless in their first 9 games – the hattrick of victories will surely rise the morale of the Uppsala based side. They haven’t had a great record away from home as well, with just 1 win in 6 matches, however 4 of them have been draws – making them the team with the highest number of draws away from home in the Swedish top flight.

Despite the 4-1 loss to Hammarby in a friendly three days back, Sirius will be confident of giving a tough fight to the league leaders. The last two meetings between the sides has seen a victory each for both teams – making this an interesting watch for the neutrals. However, Malmo’s superior form and Sirius’ inconsistency might sway the tie into the hands of the hosts.
