Malmo v Chelsea live stream, BT Sport, Tuesday 2 November, 5.45pm GMT
Chelsea can take another step closer to the knockout stage of the Champions League by beating Malmo on Tuesday.
The Blues eased to a 4-0 victory over the Swedish side in the reverse fixture last month, and it would be a surprise if this was anything other than a straightforward win for the reigning European champions. That is not to say that Malmo are incapable of causing Chelsea (opens in new tab) problems, particularly on their own patch. But Thomas Tuchel's side are playing extremely well right now, and opponents are finding it difficult to find a way through their rock-solid defence.
Granted, Norwich (opens in new tab) and Newcastle (opens in new tab) are not the toughest opponents a team like Chelsea can face. Yet the ease with which they swatted them aside will give Malmo cause for concern. The 7-0 thrashing of Norwich was followed by a comfortable 3-0 victory at St James' Park on Saturday, as Chelsea kept their fourth clean sheet in their last five games.
Romelu Lukaku went off injured against Malmo on matchday three, but Chelsea have not missed him at all. That is testament to the quality in Tuchel's squad, as well as the ability of various others to chip in with goals: seven different players have found the back of the net in Chelsea's last four outings in all competitions.
The Blues sit second in Group H ahead of Tuesday's trip to Sweden, where a win could put them on the brink of the last 16 if Juventus (opens in new tab) beat Zenit Saint Petersburg. Lukaku is still absent, along with Timo Werner and Mateo Kovacic, while Mason Mount and Mateo Kovacic will need to be assessed.
Malmo have lost all three of their Champions League games up to now, but they are only three points behind third-placed Zenit and could therefore still reach the Europa League knockout stage. A win here, though, will be difficult.
Kick-off is at 5.45pm GMT and the game is being shown live on BT Sport 2 (opens in new tab) in the UK.
Use a VPN to watch a Malmo v Chelsea live stream from outside your country
If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal stream that decides to buffer at the worst possible moment. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) (more on which below).
All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.
