In the Champions League group stage match on Wednesday, Chelsea will take on Malmo and will be hoping to make it three wins in a row in all competitions. With three points from the first two games, Thomas Tuchel’s side is presently second in their Champions League group stage. Here is everything you need to know about Chelsea vs Malmo football prediction for the Champions League match of the season.

Team news

Chelsea

Antonio Rudiger is still out with a back problem, but Malang Sarr could get another chance to start after his impressive performance against Brentford on Saturday.

After missing the 1-0 victory in west London, Thiago Silva is poised to make his comeback and Christian Pulisic is also sidelined.

Malmo

Anel Ahmedhodzic will be replaced by Niklas Moisander after receiving a red card against Zenit last time out.

Injury has ruled out Patriot Sejdiu, Ola Toivonen, Jonas Knudsen, and Oscar Lewicki.

Chelsea vs Malmo Prediction

With victories against Southampton and Brentford on either side of the international break Chelsea bounced back from back-to-back losses to Manchester City and Juventus. They’ll be confident of winning their third game in a row against Malmoe FF.

Malmoe have lost seven of their last 11 games, so the Swedish team will be hoping they have recovered from their slump, but have won 3-0 at Oestersunds.

At this point, a journey to Stamford Bridge is not desirable. On home soil, the Blues should have little trouble dispatching their Swedish opponents.

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).

Lineup

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

Our Prediction: Chelsea 3 – 0 Malmo

Writing about football is one of my favorite things to do. As a football writer, I love the rush of being in the stadium on game day and watching all the action live. It's like no other feeling for me. I'm passionate about writing about it, but until recently I've been doing it as a hobby rather than a profession.
