Goteborg vs Malmo FF Prediction & Betting tips
More than 14 months ago, two amateur clubs opened the 2019/2020 Swedish Cup. 118 games later, the pairing for the finals next Thursday is certain. IFK Göteborg and Malmö FF duel in the final for the trophy, which will be awarded for the 64th time. Like the quarter-finals and semi-finals, the title game will take place without spectators.
The home advantage in favor of the outsider from the city on the west coast of the country is therefore not due to the presence of their own fans, but only exists on paper. Nevertheless, the odds of the best bookmakers between Gothenburg and Malmo on a win after the regular vice-champion’s regular season turn out to be higher than expected, at least if one takes the previous events in the Allsvenskan in hand.
With at least six wins from eleven games and only one defeat, the light blue-whites are currently in second place, while the “Kamraterna” from Gothenburg clearly lags behind their own expectations and actually only won two matches. The current constitution therefore clearly speaks in favor of making a forecast for the guest between Gothenburg and Malmö.
With 18 championship titles, seven cup wins and even two European Cup triumphs, IFK Göteborg – alongside Malmö FF – is one of Sweden’s most successful football clubs. While the last title win in the league goes back to 2007, the “comrades” won the national cup in both 2013 and 2015. Nevertheless, four of seven finals in Svenska Cupen have been lost since 1999.
After a detailed look at the betting base odds comparison, the team of coach Poya Asbaghi faces another defeat in 2019/2020 in the last match of the competition.
The fact that the blue-whites have to make do with the role of the underdog is primarily due to the recent impressions in the league. Gothenburg is currently in eleventh place and has only celebrated two wins on eleven match days so far. In contrast, there are six draws and three defeats. Most recently, they were victorious six times in a row and shared the points four times in a row.
The way to the finals was anything but free of stumbling blocks. Both in the quarterfinals against Hammarby and in the semi-finals against Elfsborg, the multiple national champion needed the extra time to make perfect progress. Due to the cracked self-confidence and the mentioned cup final curse with four defeats in the recent seven attempts, a forecast for the guest seems more lucrative between Gothenburg and Malmo.
With 20 titles in the domestic league, Malmö Fotboll Förening is still the record champion in Sweden. Also in the cup, no other national competitor won more trophies than the light blue and white ones. Nevertheless, there is no intimate love relationship between the Svenska Cupen and the “Di blåe”. For example, the last triumph is more than 20 years in the past (1989).
In general, the traditional club only reached the final two times in the current millennium, but was the loser in both cases, most recently against Djurgardens in 2017/2018 (0: 3). It is all the more gratifying from the point of view of the home club of Zlatan Ibrahimovic that in 2019/2020 the leap into the final could finally be fixed again. On the way there, the 2015 Champions League participant was not always spotted with fame either. A 4: 1 in the round of eight against Solna was followed by a happy success after penalties in the semi-finals.
Despite the great motivation to finally bring the trophy back to the southwest, the Allsvenskan has top priority. After the light blue and whites had to let AIK Solna and finally Djurgardens take the lead in the past two seasons, the title is to be restored this year.
So far, it looks good with this venture. The team of former Bundesliga professional Jon Dahl Tomasson won six of the eleven games. First of all, the men around top scorer Thelin left the field as losers. The current form is also worthy of honor, as the most recent four matches have all been won and the light blue and whites scored a whopping twelve goals during this period. The momentum is on the side of the favorite.
