And almost none of the representatives of bookmakers and football experts n doubt that the Londoners will easily get the win on the road. And then in London to deal with the champion of the Scandinavian countries. But still, what else to expect from this meeting?
If in the country in "Blue" are not so many worthy opponents in the Europa League they had a hard time. But the players Malmo with honor passed all the European tests last fall, managing to knock out of the tournament Besiktas and Sarpsborg, as well as to the latest Genk fighting for first place in the Quartet. But still stronger in this fight were the Belgians. And now the Swedes are waiting for one of the favourites for LE.
London the team performs well in the Premier League, continuing to fight for TOP 4 with Arsenal and Manchester United. But in the Europa League wards Surry without any difficulties won the group, which in addition to were BATE, LIKE ViDi and PAOK.
Despite a challenging calendar, "Retired" is clearly not intend to abandon the fight for the prestigious European trophy. So do not think that Chelsea will "merge" LE for the title.
Hardly anyone seriously thinks that the Swedish club will be able to fight on equal terms with the Londoners. After all, even a reserve team, "Retired" is worth far more than all players malmö together. Our prediction – Chelsea to win.
