Swedish Allsvenskan champions Malmo FF welcome Scottish Premiership champions Rangers to the Eleda Stadium in the far south of Sweden for a Champions League qualification clash on Tuesday the 3rd of August 2021.
Malmo FF have had to work hard to get to this stage of Champions League qualification, as not only did they have to win their domestic league, but also begin the qualification process at the earliest possible stage.
This means the Swedish side have already played home and away legs against two opponents, Riga FC of Lativia and HJK of Finland, of which they won on aggregate 2-1 and 4-3 respectively.
Rangers have entered Champions League qualification at this semi-final stage and have yet to play a qualifier. They have however played a handful of pre-season friendlies around Europe over the summer, five to be precise, with two wins, two draws and one loss.
These two sides did meet at this exact same Champions League qualification stage back in 2011 as well, where it was Malmo that went through to the final against Dinamo Zagreb after Rangers had two players sent off in the first leg and Malmo managed a 2-1 aggregate victory.
The winner of this tie will face either Greek side Olympiakos or Bulgarian side Ludogorets in the final for a chance of heading through to the group stages of the 2021/2022 UEFA Champions League. The losing team will have to play against either Kazakh side Kairat Almaty or Armenian champions Alashkert FC in a Europa League play-off.
Malmo FF v Rangers Teams
With each of these sides being extremely keen on progressing through to the group stages of this season’s Champions League, it comes as no surprise that the managers of these teams will be fielding their strongest starting 11 for the two legs in which these mighty sides face each other.
Malmo FF will look a familiar side to their supporters who are currently a quarter of their way through their next domestic season. Malmo currently sit second in the Swedish Allsvenskan – a single point behind Djurgarden having conceded far too many more goals than they’d have liked so far.
Rangers have yet to make any changes to their side during the current transfer window, but with such domination in the last campaign, there is also no desperation for new signings. Jermain Defoe has added another year to his contract with a new player-coach role under manager Steven Gerrard.
Malmo FF v Rangers Domestic Leagues
Malmo have won four of the last seven Allsvenskan seasons, however, unlike some of the world’s top leagues, there are often a handful of teams that can go on and win the league each season. Other top teams and recent league winners include the current first-placed team Djurgarden, AIK and Norrkoping.
After a period of struggle and uncertainty while Celtic ran riot in the Scottish Premiership, Rangers have now established themselves as the dominant force in the league, winning the last season with 102 points – 25 points above Celtic in second place.
