Malmo v Chelsea Tips: Will Blues end losing run on the road?

| 13.02.2019

After a 6-0 thrashing at Manchester City, Chelsea will be desperate to get back to winning ways against Malmo in Europa League action tonight.

With pressure ramping up on Maurizio Sarri, he needs a strong showing from his side in the first leg of their round of 32 tie.

Match Odds

Our traders think Chelsea’s quality will tell as 2/5 favourites.

Malmo are in their pre-season and haven’t seen any competitive action since December. They’re 7/1 to get a first-leg win.

The hosts might not have played much lately, but they’re on a 14-game unbeaten run going back to September. They’re 15/8 to keep it going in the Double Chance market.

Talking Tactics

Sarri is set to name a strong side to get back on track. The likes of Eden Hazard, Gonzalo Higuain and N’Golo Kante have all made the trip to Sweden.

Callum Hudson-Odoi could be given a chance to impress too. He could cause havoc against a Malmo defence that isn’t match fit just yet.

Uwe Rosler’s side are likely to sit deep and try to deny the likes of Hazard any space. But Higuain could make them pay if he’s given a sight of goal.

Goalscorer Odds

That man Higuain scored twice in the Europa League for AC Milan in the group stages. He shares First Goalscorer favouritism with Hazard at 16/5. The pair are each 21/20 to net anytime too.

There’s also 2/1 about Hudson-Odoi staking a claim for more regular action with a goal.

Marcus Antonsson and Markus Rosenberg are the main threats for the hosts. We’ve got both of them at 16/5 to grab a goal.
