Malmo FF hosts Zenit in round 5 of the Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Tuesday, November 23rd at Eleda Stadion (Malmö)
Malmo FF is the champion of Sweden, and now the Sky Blues are struggling to defend their title. This time, Jon Dahl Tomasson's charges are being actively resisted by Djurgarden and, to a lesser extent, AIK. And Malmo needs to squeeze the maximum in the last rounds. On the other hand, now the Sky Blues have the last chance to cling to third place in the Champions League group. The Scandinavians looked great in the qualification and calmly beat four opponents, including strong and ambitious Rangers and Ludogorets. But in the fall, the Swedes turned out to be uncompetitive at this level. They could not even pull out a draw. However, in the last round, Malmo managed to hold back Chelsea for more than half. As a result, the Pensioners won with a minimal margin. Ziyech's goal was the only one. But even more important is the fact that Malmo lost in St. Petersburg with a large score, and now even a victory at home may not be enough.

Zenit is confidently taking 1st place in the Russian Premier League. Few people doubt that once again the title will remain in St. Petersburg. But earlier, Sergei Semak and his charges were reproached for being extremely unconvincing in the international arena. Both previous attempts in the Champions League turned out to be failures, and the team took 4th place. The Blue White-Sky Blues lagged behind Benfica and even Club Brugge KV. Against this background, now they are showing progress. They twice imposed a real fight on the grandees, losing to both Chelsea and Juventus with a minimum 0-1 score. And Zenit even kept a draw with Juventus to the 56th minute of the match in Turin but eventually lost 2-4. But, most importantly, the Russian club almost secured itself 3rd place. Zenit managed to hammer the Swedes at home, and it is symbolic that this happened in St. Petersburg. Quickly conceding a goal, Malmo tried to hold on but fell apart at the end, and Zenit won 4-0.
Bookmakers give priority to the visitors. The tournament situation will force the Swedes to open up and attack, and this should be used by more experienced Russians. We bet that Zenit will win again.
Prediction for the match: Zenit to win
