Betting Preview: Chelsea vs Malmo: Blues Victory Certain

Amuda Segun



Troubled Chelsea moved a step closer to the round of 16 in the Europa League when they secured a 2-1 victory over Swedish club Malmo in their first leg clash last Thursday.

Ross Barkley and Olivier Giroud were the heroes for the Blues as they earned a hard-fought win away from home.

Both players are expected to figure heavily again for Chelsea in the second leg as manager Maurizio Sarri rest some of his players for the Carabao Cup final clash with Premier League champions Manchester City.

The last time both teams met, the Citizens thrashed Chelsea 6-0 in what was a Premier League clash with in-form Argentine international star Sergio Aguero getting a treble in addition to further goals from Raheem Sterling (2) and Ilkay Gundogan.

Bet9ja offers 1.24 odds for a Chelsea win with the Blues heavy favourites to secure victory despite their first-leg triumph in Sweden.

Swedish club Malmo have been offered 11.75 odds for an unlikely win at Stamford Bridge.

The outcome of the match is unlikely to determine the fate of underfire Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri but the Carabao Cup result will go a long way to determine that which is why the Italian tactician will prioritise the Carabao Cup final.
