Date & Time: November 2nd, 2021 – 23:45 (IST)
Venue: Eleda Stadium, Malmo.
With two wins from their opening three games in the Champions League this term, Chelsea look on track to make a strong defence of their title.
The blues hammered Malmo 4-0 when the sides met a fortnight ago, but this should be an altogether more intense affair in the Swedish border city.
With a single point gap to Djurgarden below them in the Swedish Premier League, Malmo are being pushed all the way domestically.
Their Champions League campaign so far this season has been a disaster, with losses in all of their opening 3 games and 11 goals conceded – it looks to be too late for their Champions League hopes this term.
Johan Dahlin is an experienced head in between the sticks for Malmo and the Swedish stopper will need to be at his best here against Chelsea.
Central defence is marshalled by Niklas Moisander and he too will need to use all of his knowhow to keep things tight at the back.
Norwegian Jo Inge Berget is a hugely talented midfielder, capable to causing havoc, with Croatian Antonio Čolak in excellent form up front.
As Champions League holders, Chelsea have recovered well from a defeat to Juventus earlier in the group stages and with wins over Zenit and Malmo – they currently sit 2nd in the group.
Their Premier League campaign is going to plan too – with the blues 4 points clear at the top of the table.
Edouard Mendy has had an excellent season in goal for Chelsea and he should be called upon again here in Sweden.
Thomas Tuchel has really mixed around his defensive shape in recent weeks, but Thiago Silva and Andreas Christensen could get the nod at the back here.
Mason Mount is set to miss this one through illness, giving the likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Ross Barkley the chance to impress in midfield.
Kai Havertz could once again be the man to lead the line for Chelsea and his goals could transpire to be key for their aspirations this term.
