Chelsea take on Malmo in the Champions League tonight looking to bounce back after a setback last time out in Europe against Juventus.

Thomas Tuchel’s side continue their defence of their European crown, with a recent meeting with the Swedish outfit, which resulted in a 5-1 aggregate victory in the Europa League Round of 32 in 2019, including a 3-0 win in London with second-half goals from Olivier Giroud, Ross Barkley and Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The Blues are yet to hit top form this season though, with the Old Lady outsmarting them in Turin and defending a 1-0 lead earned through Federico Chiesa’s second-half strike.
