Malmo – Sirius
Malmo FF hosts Sirius in a game from the 15th round of the Swedish Allsvenskan league. The match is going to be played on Saturday afternoon.
Even with one game less than the 2nd Norrkoping, Malmo are leading the standings in the Allsvenskan with 33 points won from 14 games played. After losing at home against Norrkoping a few weeks ago, Malmo have been flawless in their performance winning in four consecutive games.
Combined with Norrkoping’s two consecutive losses in the league, this allowed Malmo to increase its lead on the top to six points. And now, if they managed to beat Sirius at home, this lead will increase once again.
So far Malmo have scored 24 goals in the Allsvenskan, conceding 12 in the same time.
Sirius on the other hand are also doing very well in the league so far. They are currently third in the standings, being on just two points behind Norrkoping. If they manage to beat the leaders, Sirius will become 2nd in the Allsvenskan for at least 24 hours.
They have scored 21 goals in the league so far and conceded 12.
Sirius’ performance in the Allsvenskan could be called impressive as they are newcomers in the league. Being promoted to the Swedish elite last year, they are showing spectacular things for a newcomer. If they manage to reach the Top 3 of the Allsvenskan right away from the second division, this will be really a season to remember for them.
But now they will have a really tough job against the last season’s champion. Malmo are highly motivated to defend their crown as a champion, so they will try to continue winning. Against Sirius they wil face a tough opponent, but they could rely on the support of their fans. And this could be crucial in this match.
