The Hacken vs. Malmo match will be played on Saturday, July 8, at the Bravida Arena, Goteborg. After 13 games in Swedish Allsvenskan, Hacken is 7th with 20 points, while Malmo is 1st on the table with 30 points at the moment.
In their last ten meetings, Hacken recorded five victories, Malmo had only two wins, while three matches ended in a draw. In seven out of those ten games, we saw over 2.5 goals. Also, it is fascinating that we saw six red cards in those ten games - these teams are great rivals on the pitch, and we may expect a fierce battle again!
In the last couple of seasons, Hacken found themselves in the middle of the table for most of the time. They wanted to fight for the top three positions, but they always fell short. This season will probably be the same, they are again in the middle of the table, with ten points less than the leader Malmo. However, they have an opportunity to cut that points difference to seven, if they defeat them this weekend. Also, Hacken relies on the tradition which gives them a confidence boost before the start of the match.
