The Premier League giants must guide against complacency and go out all guns blazing when they confront the Swedish outfit

Europa League favourites Chelsea travels to Sweden to tackle Malmo for their round of 32 first leg match at the new Malmo stadium on Thursday night.

Both sides haven’t met in any continental encounter. The Blues do not have a great record against Swedish clubs which consist of one win and three draws. Malmo’s record against English clubs in European competitions is even worse as they have won only once in their five previous outings (D1 L3). 

Uwe Rosler’s men are undefeated in their previous 19 home competitive games (W11 D8) while Mauricio Sarri’s men have lost their last four games on the road to Tottenham (1-0), Arsenal (2-0), Bournemouth (4-0) and Man City (6-0). The home side considered as underdogs for this fixture, are valued at (8.00) with Bet365.

Moreover, the 2013 Europa league champions won two of their three away group games which ended 1-0 against PAOK and BATE Borisov. The star-studded English side recorded an impressive 136 attempts, the highest in the group stage and are touted as favourites to win this match valued at (1.36).

The visitors rescued a point in their final away game to MOL Vidi whereas the Sky Blues drew three games in a row at the group stage, twice at home. A stalemate at the end of regulation time is offered at (5.00) by the same betting firm.
