Malmo v Chelsea Preview
Malmo pulled off something of an underdog success in the group stage of this season’s Europa League. They managed to complete the double over Besiktas with a win on matchday six to put themselves through to the knockout phase at the expense of the Turkish outfit. No Swedish side has ever gone beyond this stage of the competition. The most famous match that Malmo have been in against English opposition was the 1979 European Champions Clubs’ Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest which they lost 1-0.
The Swedes have just one win against English opposition. They lost their opening game of the group stage in this season’s Europa League but then went unbeaten in five (W2 D3). Malmo are currently unbeaten in their last eight European home games, drawing six of those. Actually, the Swedish outfit have not suffered a home loss in Europe since PSG beat them in the 2015/16 UEFA Champions League.
Chelsea comfortably won their Europa League group only dropping the two points along the way. They don’t produce anything spectacular, they basically just got the job done with as little effort as possible. Chelsea won two of their three away games in the group, both of them were 1-0 successes. This is just their second appearance in the round of 32 in the Europa League.
The last time that they were in the knockouts was in 2012/13 when they went on to win the tournament. The Blues are undefeated in their last nine games in the Europa League. Before their 2-2 draw at Vidi on matchday six, they were on an eight-match winning streak. Their last away defeat in Europe happened in the second leg of their 2013 campaign’s quarterfinal at Rubin Kazan. In all competitions, Chelsea are on a four-match losing streak away from home without having scored a goal.
