Champions League: Malmo vs Rangers preview, team news, prediction and tips
August 2


Malmo and Rangers will face off in the first leg of the Champions League third qualifying round at the Eleda Stadion on Tuesday. The kick-off is at 19:00 CEST.


Despite opening their run in the second part of the 2021 Allsvenskan season with a 3-2 away loss to IFK Norrkoping in early July, Malmo have gone on to destroy Sirius, Degerfors and Mjallby with a total score of 11-0 in the next three league matches. Moreover, Jon Dahl Tomasson's men have already knocked Riga and HJK Helsinki out of the CL in the first and second qualifying rounds respectively since then.

Rangers, for their part, kicked off their title defence in the Scottish Premiership with a confident 3-0 victory against Livingston at Ibrox over the weekend. The most recent win followed the Gers' impressive 2-1 thiumph over Real Madrid in their final pre-season friendly so Steven Gerrard's crop will be in high spirits when they travel to Sweden.

Team news

Colombia international Alfredo Morelos will not help Rangers in this one after featuring for his national side at the 2021 Copa America due to Covid-19 travelling restrictions. Kemar Roofe and Glen Kamara, for their part, will not travel to Sweden through their European suspensions. Ola Toivonen, meanwhile, is the only confirmed injury absentee in Malmo's squad.


The last time Rangers reached this stage of the competition, it were Malmo who eliminated the Scots 2-1 on aggregate. It happened exactly 10 years ago but Rangers' squad still includes Steven Davis and Allan McGregor who witnessed that defeat and will be eager to gain revenge on the Swedes this time around. Given Malmo's recent heroics in front of goal in their domestic league, we wouldn't be surprised to see goals at both ends at the Eleda Stadion on Tuesday.
