Vikingur Reykjavik vs Malmo FF Predictions

Malmo FF to win at 8/11 – ★★

Malmo FF to win 1-0 at 15/2 – ★

  • Malmo have won four of their last five games, including a 3-2 win in the first leg of this tie.
  • The visitors are in the hunt for another title on the domestic front, conceding the fewest goals (12) in the Swedish Allsvenskan.
  • Vikingur have not progressed past the qualifying rounds of any major UEFA competition since 1992.

Malmo look to build on first-leg win

Malmo’s 3-2 win over Vikingur Reykjavik put them on the brink of advancing from the duo’s first-round UEFA Champions League qualification tie, particularly in the absence of the away goals rule. Milos Milojevic’s Swedish champions approach the decisive second contest in good form after winning four of their last five games, and will be hopeful of grinding out a win in Iceland.

Indeed, Malmo sit fourth in the Swedish Allsvenskan after bouncing back from an underwhelming start to the season, boasting the best defensive record in the division (conceding just 12 goals) to aid their push for a third consecutive title. Malmo made the Champions League group stages last term, overcoming strong opponents in Rangers and Ludogorets, so should expect to make the next stage at the very least.

Vikingur, meanwhile, are in imperious form on the domestic front, where they are bidding for successive titles after edging a thrilling race last term. Arnar Gunnlaugsson’s men have won eight of their last nine, their only loss coming against Malmo, but a disappointing May in which they shipped eight goals against the likes of Breidablik and Stjarnan indicated the gulf in quality between this pair.

Swedes should progress comfortably

Malmo will likely be disappointed they only managed a one-goal margin of victory in the first leg, but the solid Swedes can build on that in the second; at a shade of odds-on, they are worth backing for another win.

Meanwhile, the visitors’ excellent defensive record – they have seven clean sheets in their last 12 domestic games – makes a 1-0 away win a decent correct score prediction.
