Malmo vs Rangers preview
While they started the new domestic season as they finished the last with a thoroughly dominant victory over Livingston, the Gers will face a significant step up in this crucial European game.
With a number of key players absent through injury and suspension, they will need to be at the top of their game as they face the Swedish champions.
Jon Dahl Tomasson’s team is currently enjoying a six-match winning streak on home turf and has significantly more competitive match practice under its belt as the Allsvenskan is currently approaching the half-way stage.
Malmo vs Rangers predictions
With this in mind, odds of 8/11 (1.73) seem fairly generous on Malmo at least avoiding defeat against a Rangers team that has not played at this level in a decade.
