Malmo to Win
Both HJK Helsinki and Malmo have an impressive domestic form to boast of. However, as they pit their witts together, we favour the Swedish travellers to take home the win and qualify at the expense of HJK. Malmo has a perfect record against their Finnish rivals, winning four out of four H2H battles. As Stuart Attwell blows for the full-time whistle on July 27, the statistics should read five in five.
BTTS – Yes
With Malmo scoring in each of their last ten fixtures, expecting them to get on the scoreboard is an eventuality. On the other hand, HJK gave a good account of their abilities to send one past Malmo at the Eleda Stadion. Roope Riski's fifth goal of the campaign allowed them a return into the fixture before Anders Christiansen's later winner put them behind. Both sides got one past their rivals and that should be on display again in this midweek meeting.
Over 2.5 Goals
Toni Koskela would have been pleased with his side's offensive prowess but was let down by the gaping holes in their backline. On Tuesday, they will get a chance to rectify the situation in the comfort of their home surroundings. However, it looks unlikely that HJK will be able to manage to shut out their rivals, especially given the fact Malmo have scored over 2 goals in their 13 Allsvenskan outings. Akin to the previous encounter, this meeting too should provide an Over 2.5 goals scoreline.

Match Preview of HJK vs Malmo
The Veikkausliiga champions have not started the campaign as they would have hoped for. Defeat to AC Oulu in their domestic opener followed by a loss to Malmo in the UEFA Champions League qualifies would not have gone well with the fans. The victory over Haka would have relieved some pressure but failure against the Swedes at Bolt Arena would tighten the noose around Toni Koskela.
De Blaa showed enough in the first leg to have the bookmakers back them as favourites in the away leg. Jon Dahl Tomasson will not be putting his guard down after facing the anxiety following HJK's equalizer at the Eleda Stadion. Despite the scare, Tomasson and the Malmo faithful will fancy their chances given Antonio-Mirko Colak's impressive run in front of the goal. The Croatian has scored seven goals in 11 Allsvenskan outings, scoring 7 in 7 across all fixtures.
