Malmo v Chelsea: Europa League betting preview, team news & TV
Maurizio Sarri's sorry Chelsea set for Swedish struggle
BT Sport 2, 8pm Thursday
With his job under threat following a 6-0 humiliation at Manchester City and 4-0 hammering at Bournemouth, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri faces a tricky balancing act.
Monday’s showpiece FA Cup clash with Manchester United will be the priority but another defeat will only hand more ammunition to his critics.
Malmo’s poor away record saw them finish third in the 2018 Swedish Allsvenskan but they lost just one of 15 home league games and have lost to only Real Madrid and PSG in their last 14 European matches in front of their own fans.
Malmo +1 goal on handicap
1pt 23-10 Betfair
Defender Franz Brorsson is the only injury doubt after missing training yesterday.
Danny Drinkwater and Gonzalo Higuain go into the squad but Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Marcos Alonso miss out.
Malmo haven’t lost any of their last 18 home games in all competitions.
