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.”
