Malmö will be hoping to bounce back here following the 3-2 Allsvenskan losing effort in their last game against Örebro SK.
In that match, Malmö FF had 64% possession and 18 attempts on goal with 9 on target. For Malmö FF, the goals were scored by Jo Inge Berget (14') and Adi Nalić (90'). On the other side, Örebro SK got 10 attempts at goal with 5 on target. David Seger (9') and Nahir Besara (23', 48') scored for Örebro SK.
Malmö have been conceding pretty frequently of late, although they’ve also managed to convert their own chances into goals. Analysis of their previous 6 games shows that Himmelsblått have seen their goal breached in 5 of them while also scoring in 6 of those games. That kind of trend might not be carried forward here, however.
Their past results show that Malmö:
- haven't been beaten in the league by AIK in their last 9 matches. A decent run, indeed.
- are undefeated in their last 14 home league matches. What a fantastic run.
After being beaten in their last game against BK Häcken in Allsvenskan competition, AIK will be hoping to turn things around here.
In that match, AIK had 52% possession and 8 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target. For their opponents, BK Häcken got 11 shots at goal with 3 of them on target. Daleho Irandust (57') was the scorer for BK Häcken.
The numbers tell their own story, and AIK have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing their opponents hit 8 goals in total. Defensively, Gnaget seem to have a bit of a soft underbelly.
Heading into this contest, AIK have not won away from home in their last 7 league games.
Head to head
Looking at their prior head to head clashes dating back to 09/04/2018 shows us that Malmö have won 2 of these & AIK 0, with the number of drawn results standing at 4.

Team News: Malmö
Dusan Melicharek (Knee Problems) and Rasmus Bengtsson (Knee Injury) will be missing for Malmö gaffer Jon Tomasson.
It looks as if Himmelsblått could employ a 4-4-2 formation for the game and select Marko Johansson, Jonas Knudsen, Lasse Nielsen, Anel Ahmedhodzic, Eric Larsson, Søren Rieks, Oscar Lewicki, Anders Christiansen, Jo Inge Berget, Isaac Kiese Thelin and Ola Toivonen.
Team News: AIK
Thanks to a fully injury-free group to choose from, AIK manager Bartosz Grzelak doesn’t have any fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this clash.
We believe Gnaget seem most likely to utilise a 3-5-2 formation, giving starts to Jakob Haugaard, Sotiris Papagiannopoulos, Per Karlsson, Karol Mets, Robert Lundström, Filip Rogic, Enock Kofi Adu, Sebastian Larsson, Eric Kahl, Kolbeinn Sigthorsson and Henok Goitom.
When taking all factors into account, Malmö will probably get the goals that they need against AIK, who will not find it easy to get a goal of their own.
We can therefore see a 2-0 margin for Malmö at the end of this one.
