Malmö is eager to bounce back after posting their worst league record in the past 14 years, and they will look for significant results early on in the new season. In addition, Malmö have a significant edge due to the fact that their new coach, Henrik Rydstrom, was in charge of Kalmar the previous season, and as a result, he is extremely familiar with the areas in which his former team struggled.
During the off-season, Malmö reduced the size of their squad, but with the additions of Vecchia and Ali, they strengthened their depth on the wings. In addition, reinforcements were added to the defensive line, where it is anticipated that Cornelius will emerge as a great player.
In addition, Malmo FF have not had any problems scoring, since they have scored at least one goal in each of their most recent six matches, making their scoring percentage perfect.
The winter brought about the departure of Kalmar's successful manager, who went on to take a position in Malmo. Not only that, but the team also lost the 2022 top goalscorer Berg (9 goals) and Nanasi (5 goals). Deniz Hummet was brought in as Kalmar's new center-forward literally just a few days before the start of the new season. This was after the team had tried for a long time to find a suitable replacement. Yet, Hummet has participated in very little team practice so far.
The first game of the season for Kalmar will take place with four players missing from the lineup. If Nilsson and Karlsson had been healthy enough to play, there is a good chance that they would have started the game. Also crucial to the team's play in the middle of the field, Jansson and Gojani will be sorely missed.
