Malmo and Granada are 90 minutes away from a place in this season's UEFA Europa League group stages. Thursday's hosts got to the last-32 before being beaten 5-1 on aggregate by Bundesliga side VfL Wolfsburg, while Granada find themselves in uncharted waters this week.

Their 4-0 win over Athletic Bilbao on the final day of last season's La Liga saw them make history – European qualification for the first time in club history. They face their toughest test yet, away from home in Sweden, against a Malmo side determined to avoid losing at the final hurdle here.

Who will prevail, booking their place in Friday's group stage draw? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Malmo vs Granada Betting Tips

Malmo had to go through three one-legged qualifying rounds but did so comfortably. Successive 2-0 victories over Poland's KS Cracovia and Budapest Honved (Hungary) were followed by a 5-0 thrashing against Croatian side Lokomotiva Zagreb last week.

Isaac Kiese Thelin netted a brace, while Soren Rieks had two assists and a goal during an emphatic home victory. After a four-match winless run in this season's Allsvenskan, they were 3-0 winners over BK Hacken at the weekend. If anyone is raring to go for this clash, it's certainly the hosts.

Granada, by contrast, were enjoying a six-match unbeaten streak (across all competitions) before facing Atletico Madrid on Sunday. Luis Suarez had a debut to remember off the bench, as Atleti cruised to a ruthlessly efficient 6-1 win – talk about timing.

Their last three H2H meetings had yielded just four goals but before their biggest game of the season, they were thumped at the Wanda Metropolitano. Head coach Diego Martinez has some selection headaches to ponder ahead of their midweek trip now.

Malmo vs Granada Correct Score Predictions

Granada trio Maxime Gonalons, Darwin Machis and Roberto Soldado – who didn't start on Sunday – are among those expected for recalls to the starting eleven.

Malmo possess real European pedigree, are the hosts on Thursday and will fancy their chances to end Granada's historic run in its tracks. It should be an intriguing watch, but I'm leaning towards a narrow home victory.
