Juventus will travel to Sweden to take on Malmo in a game that could be trickier that most imagine. Malmo have proven to be a tough match for teams in this group with the exception of a big loss to Atheltico Madrid, Malmo lost by two against both Athletico at hme and Juventus away and the away game agaist Juventus both goals came in the last ten minutes. Malmo have only scored in one game against Olympiakos but won that two nil. Rosenberg has fifteen goals this season domestically though and is a quality striker given a chance.
Juventus have struggled in the Champions League the past few years and will be looking to address this issue with qualification for the knockout stages, they must get a win in Malmo to give themselves a chance in this regard. With a star studded team led by Carlos Tevez Juve have lots of talented players but as a team struggled over the last couple of years. Now with Pogba, Pirlo, Tevez and Vidal all appearing to be clicking things should be very bright for the future of Juventus.
I think this is a classic trap game, Juve come in as huge favourites againt a home underdog with nothing to lose. I dont think Malmo will win this one or even get anything from the game but I believe they will keep it competitive for an hour or so, similar to the first game between the two. Malmo are solid defensively and will line out to defend from the outset and try to hit Juve on the counter attack. I am taking a draw at halftime here .
