Chelsea will hope to make it three wins in a row in all competitions when they will take on Malmo on Wednesday night in the Champions League group stage. Thomas Tuchel’s side is presently second in their Champions League group, with three points from their first two games. Here is our expert guess on Chelsea vs Malmo football prediction for the Champions League match of the season.
Malang Sarr could get another chance to start after his impressive performance against Brentford on Saturday, while Antonio Rudiger is still out with a back problem.
Christian Pulisic is also sidelined, but after missing the 1-0 victory in west London, Thiago Silva is poised to make his comeback.
Last time out, Anel Ahmedhodzic received a red card against Zenit and will be replaced by Niklas Moisander.
Injury has ruled out Patriot Sejdiu, Ola Toivonen, Jonas Knudsen, and Oscar Lewicki.
Chelsea vs Malmo Prediction
On either side of the international break, Chelsea bounced back from back-to-back losses to Manchester City and Juventus with victories against Southampton and Brentford. They’ll be confident of winning their third game in a row against Malmoe FF.
Over the weekend Malmoe won 3-0 at Oestersunds making it four wins in a row in all competitions.
At this point, a journey to Stamford Bridge is not desirable. On home soil, the Blues should have little trouble dispatching their Swedish opponents.
In Chelsea’s last ten games, there have been fewer than 2.5 goals scored (Champions League).
Over 2.5 goals have been scored in seven of Malmoe FF’s past eight games (Champions League).
Malmoe FF has dropped their last three games (Champions League).
Malmoe FF has conceded at least two goals in each of their last three games (Champions League).
Chelsea possible starting lineup: Mendy; Sarr, Silva, Christensen; Alonso, Mount, Jorginho, Kante, Azpilicueta; Werner, Lukaku
Malmo possible starting lineup: Dahlin;Moisander, Nielsen, Brorsson; Larsson, Innocent, Rakip, Christiansen, Berget; Colak, Brimancevic
