CHE vs MAL: How Previous European Meetings Between Chelsea And Malmo Ended

Following their defeat to Juventus in Turin last month, Chelsea will be hoping to get their Champions league campaign back on track as they welcome Malmo to Stamford Bridge this Wednesday. The game which is scheduled to kick-off by 20:00 West Africa Standard time will mark the first meeting between these two sides in the Champions league, but the third in European competitions having previously met in the Europa league.

However, coming on the back of two consecutive Premier league wins, Thomas Tuchel will be hoping for another decent result against their Swedish opponents. In view of this, take a look at Chelsea's last two European meetings with Malmo and how they fared;

1- Malmo 1 vs 2 Chelsea (14 February 2019)

In what proved to be a Europa league winning campaign, Chelsea squared up against Malmo in the round of 32. With the first leg taking place in Sweden, goals from Ross Barkley and Oliver Giroud was the difference as the Blues earned a 2-1 first leg advantage.

2- Chelsea 3 vs 0 Malmo (21 February 2019)

With the momentum all on Chelsea, second half goals from Oliver Giroud, Ross Barkley and Hudson-Odoi proved crucial as Chelsea booked their place in the round of 16.

Under normal circumstance, a game against Malmo shouldn't be a big problem for the Blues, but it is pertinent not to underestimate any team especially in the Champions league. While Chelsea will be expected to get the result, one cannot rule out the possibility of a likely upset.
