Falkenbergs FF have regularly broken through opposing defences in their most recent fixtures, scoring 9 goals in their previous 6 matches. Having said that, Falkenberg have been somewhat leaky at the back, having also been scored against in 6 of those same matches. Such a trend won’t necessarily be continued into this match, however.

Head to head
Looking over their past head to head results stretching back to 23/05/2016 reveals that these fixtures have not been kind to Falkenberg. They’ve not been able to get any victories at all while Malmö have managed to find a way, running out winners in 100% of those games where they have faced each other.
16 goals were produced between them throughout the course of those matches, with 15 for Himmelsblått and 1 being from Falkenberg. That’s an average goals per game of 2.67.
The previous league match featuring the two was Allsvenskan match day 14 on 09/08/2020 when the final score was Falkenbergs FF 0-1 Malmö FF.
On that day, Falkenbergs FF managed 60% possession and 13 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target.

Team News: Malmö
Dusan Melicharek (Knee Problems) and Rasmus Bengtsson (Knee Injury) won’t be playing for Malmö gaffer Jon Tomasson.
We think that Himmelsblått may well use a 4-2-3-1 formation for this game with Marko Johansson, Jonas Knudsen, Behrang Safari, Franz Brorsson, Eric Larsson, Erdal Rakip, Bonke Innocent, Jo Inge Berget, Anders Christiansen, Søren Rieks and Isaac Kiese Thelin.
Team News: Falkenberg
Thanks to a completely healthy group available for selection, Falkenberg boss Hasse Eklund does not have any fitness concerns to report ahead of this clash.
We reckon that Falkenberg appear most likely to elect for a 4-4-2 formation by sending out Johan Brattberg, Sander Van Looy, Carl Johansson, Tobias Karlsson, Tobias Englund, Anton Wede, Christoffer Carlsson, Marcus Mathisen, John Björkengren, Karl Söderström and Gustaf Nilsson.
In our opinion, Malmö will most probably be able to create a good number of chances & successful shots on target.
At the other end, Falkenberg won’t find it easy to break down their defence although we do reckon that they could well end up converting at least once.
Accordingly, we see a controlled 3-1 winning margin for Malmö at full-time.
