Malmö vs Ludogorets Betting Tips & Odds│18 AUGUST, 2021

It was difficult to believe that Malmö and Ludogorets would play against each other in the Champions League play-off stage. The Swedes knocked Glasgow Rangers out of the tournament, and the Bulgarians beat Olympiacos, despite being considered outsiders in these matches. 

Malmö form

Malmö is obviously fully focused on qualifying for the Champions League group stage. No wonder the team lost to Göteborg 2-3 at home last weekend. However, it wasn’t until the 9th minute of extra time when Göteborg scored the decisive goal, after Gwargis’ suspension. The match was truly nerve-wracking, taking a lot of physical and moral strength from Malmö players. This defeat put Malmö 3 points behind the leading Djurgården in the Allsvenskan standings, while AIK caught up with the Sky Blue on points and is now behind only on goal difference. Despite this defeat, Malmö maintains excellent home statistics, which is third in the country, +5=1-1, 18-10 goal difference.

Ludogorets form

Unlike Malmö, Ludogorets had a week off before their first match against the home team. The Bulgarian Football Union allowed its champion to fully concentrate on the Champions League matches. Recall that Ludogorets defeated Olympiacos because of a penalty shootout. The first match, held in Greece, ended 1-1. The 2nd leg ended with a 2-2 score. By the way, but for the new rules, Olympiacos would have qualified to the next round of the Champions League without a penalty shootout. Having played only two matches in the Bulgarian First League, Ludogorets have already had six games in the Champions League qualifying round. Before playing against the Greek Olympiacos, Ludogorets defeated Shakhtyor Soligorsk and Mura.

Injuries and suspensions

Malmö: Bonke (suspended), Knudsen (knee injury), Toivonen (knee injury).

Ludogorets: Higinio (leg fracture), Despodov (suspended).

Expert Betting Tips

Ludogorets has not lost a single official match in the season. In the qualifying rounds, the Bulgarian champion played a draw with Olympiacos and Mura, and defeated Shakhtyor 1-0. Malmö has great home statistics, but the team is still exhausted from the intense game against Göteborg. It would be great if this state didn’t affect Malmö’s performance in the upcoming game. The betting tips for the game are the following: 2X for 1.84, Total Under 2.25 for 1.89, Handicap 2 (0) for 2.92.
