Malmo's impressive seven-game unbeaten run in all competitions was halted with a 1-0 loss to Kalmar in their most recent match. Despite dominating the game with 60% possession, they were caught off guard by Simon Skrabb's late goal in the 90+5th minute.
One concerning trend for Malmo has been their inability to keep a clean sheet, as they have conceded goals in their last six games. This has impacted their ability to maintain their top spot on the league table. As of now, they are in second place with 55 points from 26 games, having scored 53 goals and conceded 23.
Additionally, Malmo will have to contend with the absence of several key players due to injuries, including Anders Christiansen (heart problems), Daniel Gudjohnsen, Niklas Moisander, and Anton Tinnerholm.
Varbergs head into their upcoming match on the heels of a challenging run of form, having suffered defeats in their last four games. This period included a heavy 7-0 loss to Sirius, which added to their difficulties.
The team's struggles have left them at the bottom of the league standings, with just 14 points from 26 games. Their position is precarious, as they are currently 16 points behind the safety zone. This means that their fight to avoid relegation is becoming increasingly challenging.
Furthermore, Varbergs will be without several key players due to injuries, including Oliver Alfonsi (Cruciate ligament injury), Gideon Mensah (Torn lateral knee ligament), and Anton Liljenbäck (Torn lateral knee ligament). These absences add to their challenges as they aim to reverse their fortunes in the league.
In the eight times that both Malmo and Varberg have faced each other, Malmo have secured victory in four matches, while Varberg have won two games, and two encounters concluded in draws. The most recent game between these two sides resulted in a resounding 6-0 victory for Malmo. Many of their past clashes have seen multiple goals scored, making their meetings quite exciting and high-scoring affairs.
