*****The Official Malmo FF v Rangers thread*****

Recommended Posts

Rangers finally broke the nine-year stranglehold that Old Firm rivals Celtic had on Scottish football last season, winning the league undefeated, and earning the right to enter the UCL picture in the third qualifying round. Now beginning their quest for a first UCL group stage appearance in a decade, Steven Gerrard’s side will be aiming to carry the momentum of their historic 102-point 2020/21 title winning season into European competition.

The ‘Gers’ will be hoping history doesn’t repeat itself, as their last push for the UCL group stage ended in this round of qualifying in 2011/12, after a title winning season, at the hands of none other than Malmö! However Rangers are a different team now after conceding only 13 goals (0.34 on average per game) while scoring 92 (2.42 on average) during last year’s domestic season - form that was reinforced with a 3-0 win in their 2021/22 season opener vs Livingston.

Players to watch: Malmö midfielder and club captain Anders Christiansen has three goal contributions across his three UCL qualifiers this season (G:2, A1), while Rangers have never lost when winger Ianis Hagi has scored (W11).

Hot stat: Since September 2020, these two sides have combined for just one 0-0 scoreline in 80 competitive matches.

Will be interesting to see how we approach the game with away goals rule change.


Tav Goldson Helander Borna

Lundstram Davis Arfield

Wright Sakala Kent

Happy with a win of any sorts but a clean sheet would be great to keep the momentum going into the weekend.

That was the aim:pipe:

One rule for the mods and another for us mere posters. Had a OF thread chopped multiple times last year and I wasn't even Zubr up at the time. :unsure:

Be very surprised if Aribo does not play.

If Hagi is missing can see Aribo playing RW.

Actually forgot about Aribo. Swap him for Arfield and I think that will be the team.

* Aribo for Hagi if not fit

I watched Malmo and thought they were just okay but I'm nervous about this tie. Hope I'm wrong.
