Malmo have endured a very difficult and disappointing time lately. In their last six matches, they have managed just a draw to go with five defeats. They are 18 points off the summit in their domestic league and look to have already conceded their league crown. Malmo’s bad form hasn’t spared them in the Europa League either where they will now play as a matter of pride only.
Union St. Gilloise, on the other hand, have been terrific in their recent matches. They have managed four wins and just two draws in their last six fixtures. Their unbeaten run stretches way back to the start of September, since when they have established a strong position in their domestic league and the Europa League. Union will certainly fancy their chances to beat Malmo and secure qualification.
Malmo will have to manage without the injured Adi Nalic, Mahame Siby, Niklas Moisander and the suspended Emmanuel Lomotey. For the visitors, Koki Machida is the only reported absentee.
