❌ Malmo FF - Chelsea [Champions League]

Match starts: Tuesday, 02.11.2021 at 18:45 (GMT+1)

My first pick for Tuesday is a match between Swedish Malmo and Chelsea. It is one of the two matches that are played earlier than the rest and Chelsea will be looking to bring all 3 points back to London.


Malmo is having a good season as they are currently at the top of Swedish Allsvenskan after 27 matches played and they want to win the home title for a 2nd year in a row. They are infront of Djurgarden by just 1 point and there are 3 matches left to be played, so nothing is certain yet. They have lost just 1 out of their last 10 Allsvenskan matches, but have failed to see any success in the group stage of the Champions League. They have lost all 3 matches and they have the worst goal difference out of all the clubs in the competition. But they're known as a very inconvenient team to play against, especially at their home turf. Chelsea will have to show 100% in order to take a win against them.

Missing players: F. Beijmo (injury), A. Christiansen (injury), J. Knudsen (injury), O. Toivonen (injury)


Chelsea have managed to translate last year's success into new season and are currently in superb form. They are leaders in the Premier League and since the start of 2021-2022 season they took 12 wins, 1 draw and 2 defeats out of 15 matches, which is an amazing record. In Champions League, they got 2 comfortable wins over Zenit and Malmo, but lost on the road against Juventus. They are among the favourites to win both Premier League and Champions League and they are doing a tremendous job so far. They will be missing two starting forwards, which might affect their effectiveness in attack, but they should still have more than enough quality and power to take all 3 points from Malmo.

Missing players: M. Kovačič (injury), R. Lukaku (injury), T. Werner (injury), M. Mount (illness)


My pick for this match is -1.5 Asian handicap on Chelsea and the guests should be able to cover the handicap successfully. I don't expect them to blow out Malmo like they did in London, but odds of 1.77 are valuable enough to play.

Best of luck!
