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.
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
Our Prediction: Chelsea 3 – 0 Malmo
