Malmo - Hacken Betting Preview: Back the hosts to score at least twice

The home side have been in fine form at Swedbank Stadion in recent weeks and Phil Kitromilides believes that backing them to find the net more than once is a shrewd move
Title chasers Malmo take on last season's runners-up Hacken this evening and, for a multitude of reasons, the home side are clear favorites. Coral price a victory for Malmo at 8/13 (1.62) and that looks about right when you consider their recent form.

Unbeaten at home since the dark days of last September, Malmo have been extremely strong at the Swedbank Stadion, while Hacken have struggled to repeat their form of last year, currently languishing in mid-table.

An away win is offered at 10/3 (4.33) but that holds little appeal, with the draw offered at 13/5 (4.60).

Looking at the statistics from a betting point of view, it would appear that backing Malmo to sore over 1.5 goals could be a shrewd investment and is offered at 7/10 (1.70).

This bet has paid out in five of Malmo's last six games and, while they have not been rampant in front of goal this season, they have been steadily finding the back of the net.

Hacken's defensive record is not the worst but nor is it the best, with the side from Gothenburg conceding nine goals in their last five away games.

This looks like a solid selection at a decent price but, for something a bit larger in price, back Malmo to win both halves at 4/1 (5.00) with Coral.
