Chelsea will be looking to keep up with Juventus as they travel to Swedish Malmo on Tuesday evening in the fourth round of the UEFA Champions League.

Malmo have been awful in the Champions League this season with zero points in three games, They are yet to find the back of the net and have conceded eleven goals in the Champions League this season. Three of their last three games in the Champions League have seen over 2.5 goals come in and have conceded an average of 3+ goals this season. Their last Champions League outing was a 4-0 thrashing at home to European Champions, Chelsea. A 2-3 away win over IK Sirius in the Swedish League could act as a confidence booster heading into this match. Ola Toivonen, Patriot Sejdiu, Jonas Knudsen are all ruled out while defender Felix Beijmo is in contention.

Chelsea have been solid this season, producing consistent results and have won their last six competitive matches in all competitions. They sit comfortably in second place in Group H, three points behind group leaders Juventus. They have won two and lost one of their three Champions League matches scoring a total of five goals and conceding once. Chelsea have won four of their last six away matches in all competitions, with one draw and one loss. Strikers Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku remain sidelined and unavailable while midfielders Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic remain in contention.

Malmo have lost all three Champions League games this season and are short on ideas. It is difficult to see the Swedish side get something from this fixture given Chelsea’s recent dominant display. We are backing a comfortable win for the European champions with the English side looking good value on the handicap.
