Real Madrid vs Malmo FF Betting Tip and Predictions.
In the last round in Group A, in the UEFA Champions League, Real Madrid host Malmo FF at Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid have already secured the first position in Group A in the UEFA Champions League, but they want another win upfront their supporters. They have won 4 of their 5 matches this season in this competition and they want to finish the first phase with another three points. Rafa Benitez has announced that he will rotate and some players will be rested to be fresh for Primera match against Villarreal on Sunday. Cristiano Ronaldo, the current top scorer in Champions League with 7 goals, will be in the first eleven and he will be fully motivated to score, as usually. In the first match between these two teams, Spanish side beat them away 0-2 and Ronaldo scored both goals. Despite the fact that Real Madrid secured the first position, they want another win in this competition.
Malmo FF stand at the bottom of the table with only one win in 5 matches. They still have a chance to reach the 3rd position and qualify in the UEFA Europa League, but they have to stay unbeaten at Santiago Bernabeu, while Shakhtar have to lose in Paris. The season in Swedish Allsvenskan league is over one month ago, so visitors didn’t have many competition matches, so their form is questionable. Two very important players (one of them is an important defender) are both suspended, so that could be a big problem for them. It’s hard to believe that visitors can make some positive result against Spanish giant, but they have nothing to lose and they will do their best in order to hit the net.

Real Madrid vs Malmo FF Prediction
Real Madrid don’t need a win and this match is not very important for them, but for Cristiano Ronaldo it is. He want goals and the whole team are playing for them, so I believe that he will be the multi scorer tonight and hit the net at least two times.
