Chelsea vs Malmo Live in the Champions League: Match Preview

On paper, the match looks very much straightforward, with the Blues being the favourites. However, the previous two games have shown that the favourites tag does not necessarily mean that the game will be an easy one.

Chelsea struggled to create chances and it was a hard-fought win for the Blues. However, Malmo have given away seven goals in two Champions League games. Thomas Tuchel will be keen that his side is also able to exploit Malmo’s defensive fragilities.

Players to watch out for: Chelsea vs Malmo Live

Chelsea

Mason Mount

Last season the Englishman was Chelsea’s leading chance creator. With Malmo likely to sit deep Mount will be tasked with creating chances to open up the Swedish side. If he is not able to create chances then they could again struggle as they did against Zenit.

Malmo

Dahlin

In games where the underdogs have to win we have often seen that goalkeepers produce heroics. Dahlin will have to do something similar for his side to get something from Stamford Bridge.
