Jubel von Brekalo, Otavio und Schlager nach dem 1:1 im Heimspiel gegen Malmö.

The VfL travelling party departed Braunschweig airport for southern Sweden at midday on Wednesday. The Wolves play the second leg of their UEFA Europa League Round of 32 tie against Malmö FF on Thursday (kick-off 18:55 CET), hoping to protect their 2-1 lead from the first leg last week. Oliver Glasner’s side will be backed by 1,700 VfL fans at the Swedbank Stadion.

Defensive trio to miss out

Along with right-backs William (cruciate ligament tear) and Kevin Mbabu (suspension), Frenchmen Josuha Guilavogui and Jerome Roussillon will also be absent against the Swedes due to knocks. Head coach Glasner will therefore be forced to tinker, particularly in the full-back positions.

Malmö up for the challenge

Anticipation ahead of the match is building on both sides, particularly after the close result in the first leg. “We know we’re coming up against a team from a strong league,” stressed Malmö head coach Jon Dahl Tomasson. “But we gave ourselves an excellent opportunity last week and we now have a better idea of where we’re at for this game. We know what we need to do and that’s an advantage. I’m really looking forward to the challenge.”
