Malmo vs Hacken
I believe Häcken is a lot more prepared for this match but I have a hard time seeing them winning. Malmö on the other hand showed improvement in the away match vs Hammarby and should be able to gain a point here.
The talk amongst the fans is that this is the time for us to finally win after three league losses in a row (and one cup loss) but I don't see that happening. This is MFF's fourth match in ten days and a lot has happend during those ten days; the firing of Pehrsson, appointment of interim coach Andersson, the exit against Djurgården (0-3) in the cup, the 0-1 loss to Trelleborg in the derby and most recently, the loss to Hammarby where Nielsen was sent off. MFF is coming to this match without several important players: Bachirou, Safari, Traustasson and most likely Bengtsson. There are questionmarks around Dahlin and his ability to play today (he is the first keeper).
Häcken is doing very well at the moment, coming off a 5-0 win against Elfsborg 6 days ago which was their most recent match meaning they've had all the time and harmony in the club to prepare for the match in Malmö and I don't see them losing this. They have a big point creator in Paulinho and their defence is very solid this season, conceding only 6 goals in 8 matches which makes it the second best defence in the league so far (1 more goal conceded than AIK).
Despite losing to Hammarby, MFF showed a fighting spirit that's been lacking so far this season and in front of their own fans they'll reignite that fire. However, with the abscentees I can't see them winning against this amazing Häcken team. I expect a 1-1/2-2 draw.
