Chelsea's six matches against Swedish opponents in Europe

:Headline: Chelsea's six matches against Swedish opponents in Europe:
Chelsea are currently preparing to face Malmo in the Champions League on Wednesday night, but how have the Blues fared in previous games against Swedish opposition?
Sports Mole

During last season's Champions League-winning campaign, Chelsea were not required to travel far and wide with only a long trip to Russian side Krasnodar seeing them rack up plenty of air miles.

However, it is a slightly different story this time around with a visit to Sweden to face Malmo among their schedule ahead of the knockout stages.

The visit to the Elada Stadion is not scheduled until November 2, but how have Chelsea fared in their previous clashes with Swedish opposition? Sports Mole takes a look...


ATVIDABERG (1971-72 EUROPEAN CUP WINNERS' CUP)

Having won the Cup Winners' Cup during the previous season, Chelsea had high hopes of a successful defence of their trophy.

They had no reason to believe that they would not make the latter stages having recorded a 21-0 aggregate triumph over Luxembourg outfit Jeunesse Hautcharage.

However, after a goalless away leg, Chelsea were left stunned at Stamford Bridge, only registering a 1-1 draw to bow out on away goals to a team who would later go on to lift the Swedish league title for the first time in their history.


HELSINGBORG (1998-99 UEFA CUP WINNERS' CUP)

Lightning struck twice as defending champions Chelsea were paired with another Swedish team during the early stages of the 1999 edition.

The coincidences continued as Helsingborg went on to win the Swedish crown later that season, ending a 58-year wait, but they ultimately benefitted from an early exit from Europe.

Frank Leboeuf scored the only goal of the game during the first leg at Stamford Bridge before Chelsea did enough to earn a goalless draw during the return fixture.


MALMO (2018-19 UEFA EUROPA LEAGUE)

Fast forward to 2019 and Chelsea were paired with Malmo in the last 32 of the Europa League. Malmo had benefitted from being drawn in a favourable group, finishing ahead of Besiktas and Sarpsborg 08 to claim second spot behind Genk.

However, the double-header with Chelsea proved to be a step too far. The first leg took place in Sweden, with Ross Barkley and Olivier Giroud getting on the scoresheet to give the Blues a 2-1 advantage after of the second 90 minutes at Stamford Bridge.

While the Premier League giants were made to work hard in West London, three second-half strikes from the same two players and Callum Hudson-Odoi got the job done.

Chelsea would eventually go on to win the competition, Maurizio Sarri lifting the club's sixth European crown before being replaced by Frank Lampard.
