Östersunds FK will cross fingers that their home advantage is enough to get at least a point from this demanding meeting, against lively Malmö FF.

Insights:
  • Östersunds FK have the fewest points from losing position (2) in Allsvenskan
  • Malmö FF have the most scored goals (45) in Allsvenskan

The visiting Malmö FF played their last game only three days ago, a Svenska Cupen match.

One slightly interesting match fact is that this game is played on artifical turf and that the visiting Malmö FF have a different surface at their stadium (grass). The impact of this is hard to measure exactly, but the visitors stats on artifical turf is 6-4-6 (win-draw-loss) from 16 matches.

It's quite the trip for Malmö FF when visiting Östersunds FK as the cities are 1000 kilometers apart.

Malmö are travelling after their nice 5-1 home win in the Svenska Cupen against Onsala. As mentioned above, Malmö was the only team on the pitch versus Onsala in their previous game, winning 5-1. This could be a tougher task.

Malmö have another game that requires travelling in just four sleeps, a Champions League fixture vs Chelsea. A rough itinerary for the visiting team!
