Norrkoping – Malmo
Norrköping and Malmo FF are facing each other in one of the most important games of the Swedish Allsvenskan for this season. These two teams are the big favourites for the gold medals in the league and there are just four points that separate them from each other. For now Malmo are leading the standings with 57 points, but a win for Norrköping would mean shortening this difference to just one point.
Just a few weeks ago Norrköping was leading the table in Sweden, but two consecutive losses allowed Malmo to get on the top. This was a very bad moment for Norrköping to allow a dip in the team’s form, especially when the league is nearing it’s big finale, but they still have their chances to win the gold medals. Winning against Malmo is “a must”, though.
Malmo on the other hand gladly accepted the gifts they recieved from Norrköping. Allan Kuhn’s team won four of its last five games in the league, which allowed them to occupy the first spot. Now everything is in their own hands and everybody at Malmo knows how important is to not lose the visit to Norrköping.
Malmo’s biggest weapon comes from Iceland and is called Vidhar Kjartansson. The Icelandic stiker is currently leading the Allsvenskan’s topscorers table, having scored 14 goals in the league so far.
Norrköping’s answer to Kjartansson is called Sebastian Andersson, who scored 11 goals since the start of the 2016 campaign. He’s currently the third most profilic striker in the Swedish league.
This a very important game in the Allsvenskan, because it could either decide almost everything or make the league very complicated in the last few rounds. A win for Malmo could be decisive and the price could be the gold medals, but if Norrköping manages to snatch the three points, then everythings starts once again.
