Chelsea – Malmo, Europa League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR CHELSEA - MALMO
Sarri accused his players of lacking motivation after the match with Arsenal. It was a risky move. So in the moment things look much worse. This loss from United at home a few days ago in the FA Cup was awful for the Italian who can be sacked very soon. Chelsea has an extremely important League Cup final on Sunday, which must win to get away from the pressure in some way. They defeated Malmö in the first match, so now they just do not have to lose no, but the blues will certainly think about City.
This goal, which the Swedes scored against Chelsea at the end of the game, of course, gives Malmö some chances. They can take advantage of Chelsea’s difficult situation, and the Blues are supposed to come up with some reserves, but we still do not think the Scandinavian class is enough to be able to score two goals at Stamford Bridge. Still, it is important for Malmö not to make individual mistakes, for which they lost the first match.
Malmo lost just their first official match against Chelsea last week after a series of 13 consecutive games without loss. Overall, Malmö’s defense is not weak, although they will have to rely on their attack. We do not think Chelsea has the strength, the desire, and at least think of some win with big difference in this day. The odds for “1” are very low and absolutely not worth it. The Swedish Championship is over, so Malmö can put all their efforts in this game. Prediction – Malmö +2.5 AH at 1.49
- Malmö did not lose more than 2 goals in 45 consecutive games
- Chelsea has only 2 wins with more than 2 goals in the last 21 games
