Malmo FF is back in the Champions League and their progress into the group stages of this tournament is in itself a fairy story as the club did defeat Rangers on their way to this stage. They will be in a dream group with fantastic opponents in Chelsea, Juventus and Zenit. Of course difficult but also a massive challenge to play against these giants.
Their final hurdle was Ludogoretz, defeated over two games 3-2. Norwegian international Jo Inge Berget is one of their key players, scoring a vital goal in that first leg and in his second period with MFF. The 30 year old attacker has to date played 139 league games and scored 35 goals during his time, first from 2015 to 2017 with a year playing for New York City and then returning in 2019 and since been influential for his team.
Jon Dahl Tomasson is a familier name in football and the previous Denmark assistant manager and now in charge of MFF has a grand life in football being a proven goalscorer in many European League’s and with a previous life at clubs such as Newcastle, Feyenoord, AC Milan, Stuttgart and Villareal.
Tomasson must have been delighted after the wins against Rangers and Steven Gerrard, which might have been the key game to get into the group stages as they were probably the favorites to go through.
The team from the Scania capital will again be back in the best party with a bit to prove, but of course we believe it will probably be a great experience and hopefully a chance to qualify for more fighting with Zenit for that 3rd position, with Chelsea and Juventus looking too strong.
