Norrkoping have struggled for form of late and now find themselves in the bottom half of the league table. They were held to a 1-1 draw by struggling Degerforfs in their last game, conceding a late goal after seemingly being set to come away with all three points.
The hosts sit 11th in the league table with 16 points from 13 games. They will be looking to return to winning ways this weekend to move up the table.
Malmo have bounced back from their shock 2-1 defeat to GIF Sundsvall earlier this month and are now enjoying a good run of form. They beat Varberg 3-0 in their last league outing via strikes from Jo Inge Berget, Anders Christiansen and Veljko Birmancevic.
The visitors have picked up 24 points from 14 games and sit fourth in the league table. They will aim to continue their strong run on Saturday as they target a third straight league title.
