Malmo will be hoping to pull off an upset when they welcome Chelsea to the Eleda Stadion for Tuesday’s Champions League clash.
Jon Dahl Tomasson’s men are rock bottom of Group H without a point to their name after three games, having slumped to a 4-0 defeat in the reverse encounter at Stamford Bridge last time out.
Malmo vs Chelsea latest odds
Indeed, Malmo are 16/1 (17.0) outsiders with bet365 to secure their first group-stage victory in six years when they take on the reigning European champions, and priced at 6/1 (7.0) to earn even a single point.
Chelsea were beaten 1-0 by Juventus in their first away game in this season’s competition but are clear 1/6 (1.17) favourites to collect all three points in this one.
Malmo vs Chelsea first goalscorer
Kai Havertz is the 15/4 (4.75) favourite to open the scoring in the absence of the injured Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner, although Jorginho could prove the best bet at 13/2 (7.50) considering he struck twice from the spot in the reverse encounter.
Antonio Colak is the home team’s 14/1 (15.0) front runner to break the deadlock as he tops their scoring charts with 21 goals in all competitions, while Veljko Birmancevic can be backed at 18/1 (19.0) following goals in three of his last five games.
Malmo vs Chelsea preview
It is fair to say that Malmo have looked out of their depth during their first group-stage appearance since 2015, having lost three out of three matches so far – conceding 11 goals while failing to score themselves.
It is hard to see them having much to cheer about this time out against Thomas Tuchel’s team, which has conceded just six times in 15 games so far this campaign and five goals in their last 16 Champions League fixtures.
Malmo vs Chelsea tips & predictions
In fact, odds of 5/6 (1.83) seem generous on Chelsea winning to nil for their fifth Champions League game in six against a Malmo team that has lost three from three without getting on target.
All odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
