Chelsea vs Malmo Prediction

Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

Champions League owner Chelsea welcome Malmo on Wednesday evening to Stamford Bridge for the third Group H game.

The hosts are in second place after winning and losing one of their first two games, while their guests are bottom of the pack and haven’t yet scored a goal in the competition.

Prediction for this match

Chelsea’s defense of the Champions League title began with a narrow 1-0 win over Zenit St. Petersburg in September, with Romelu Lukaku scoring the only goal of the game.

This remains the Belgian’s youngest goal in a Chelsea shirt as he suffered a goal drought that spanned six games – his team still managed to win four of those games but lost key games against Manchester City and Juventus.

A Federico Chiesa Goal 10 seconds in the second half was enough to secure victory for the Italians as the Blues recorded 73% of possession but struggled to get a killer chance as they only scored one goal.

Despite the defeat, these two teams remain the clear favorites to advance to Group H but they need to keep laying the groundwork and making sure they beat a side from Malmö that have suffered two major losses in the competition so far.

Thomas Tuchel will have been delighted with his team’s victories on both sides of the international break, despite the fact that they had to maintain a 1-0 lead with goalkeepers in the second half against Brentford Edouard Mendy for a number of important saves that have helped them stay at the top of the Premier League.

As already mentioned, Malmö’s Champions League campaign has not yet gone according to plan.

The Swedish side had to work to reach the group states of the competition for the first time since 2015-16 and got through all four qualifying rounds thanks to victories over Riga, HJK, Rangers and a decisive 3-2 aggregate win over Ludogorets.

After fighting so hard for that point, they will have been disappointed with their two opening games – a 3-0 loss to Juventus might have been understandable, but a 4-0 loss to Zenit in the last game would have hurt.

Jon Dahl Tomasson‘s side are currently in the midst of a close battle for the Allsvenskan title, at the top with Djurgardens IF and AIK Fotboll with 44 points and seven games remaining.

So the coach has to decide whether he wants to admit defeat in the Champions League and save his most important players for the league or try to survive in both; However, if they lose this game, they may be almost officially out of the competition anyway.

Chelsea center-back Antonio Rudiger pictured in September 2021

Antonio Rudiger will miss it again with a past issue, but Thiago Silva is available after his late return from international play resulted in missing Brentford.

A chain of three from Silva could see that, Andreas Christensen and the young Malang Sarra, who impressed in his first Premier League appearance on Saturday night.

Christian Pulisic is also excluded with an ankle injury and Hakim Ziyech is doubtful by illness so it seems it will stay a front two from Lukaku and Timo Werner, supported by Masonic Mountain in an attacking midfield role.

Malmös Anel Ahmedhodzic is suspended after receiving a red card against Zenit the last time with Niklas Moisander expected as deputy.

Tomasson also has a pretty long injury list to deal with – Oscar Lewicki, Jonas Knudsen and Ola Toivonen are all on the verge of knee problems while Felix Beijmo stays away with a collarbone injury.

Chelsea possible starting line-up:
Mendy; Christensen, Silva, Sarr; Azpilicueta, ridge, mountain, Jorginho, Alonso; Lukaku, Werner

Malmö possible starting line-up:
Dahlin; Moisander, Brorsson, Nielsen; Larsson, Rakip, Innocent, Christiansen, Berget; Birmancevic, Colak

Probability: Chelsea 3-0 Malmö

Chelsea will be confident of three straight home wins against a team from Malmo who have been overwhelmed so far in this year’s Champions League and it could just be a case in point how many of the Blues can score.
