Drott is a team that is hurting bad right now. They have started off with 4 losses and haven´t played against the better of teams. Lost by 14 against Kristianstad (A), 13 at home against Lugi and then 6 away against Karlskrona and most recent by 11 against Aranäs. the two last teams are considered bottom half teams as well. Now all focus lies on getting points and in the Drott camp they are talking about boosting moral and try to perform as well as they can. All lot is revolving around Zetterman in offense and he has started great. Drott also have some decent players in Hallén, Berg, Blickhammar but all in all are the squad to weak with not enough offensive threats. As the results tell they are struggling a lot in defense as well. -44 in 4 games is really bad and the qualities of the keepers are not good enough with both laying around 20-25% saverate.
Malmo has a wider squad and more players that can step up and provide the necessary goals. Andersson, Persson and Pecikoza have started of best but they also have solid players in veteran Lindahl, Tönnesen, Månsson and Nyberg. They have a good pair of keepers with former Bundesliga and national keeper in Beutler but also have Kraft who is a good compliment. They haven´t started of as well as hoped so their is still room for improvement on the savingrate for both keepers. Malmo sits on 4 points with 2 wins and 2 losses. Began the season by losing by 1 away against Lugi, won by 4 against Karlskrona, lost against Ystad by 16 and most recent won against Aranäs with 10 goals.
As we can see they have faced some of the same opponents with very different results, and this tell a bit of the difference in quality and form right now. No important absences in either team that can be reported of, and players should be nice and rested with 1 week since last match for Drott and 2 weeks for Malmo. This is a "must" win for Malmo if they want to fight in the top half in the long run and I don´t see them dropping points here against a struggling Drott. I think there is solid chance for Malmo to cover the -2 hcp so that will be the bet.
