Chris Sutton says this is how he expects Malmo to play at Celtic Park

Scottish Premiership champions Celtic will face Malmo in the Champions League playoff round.

Chris Sutton has explained in The Daily Record how he expects Malmo to play against Celtic in the first leg of their Champions League playoff round tie.

Scottish Premiership champions Celtic will host Malmo at Celtic Park in the first leg later this month, with the second leg to be played in Sweden a week later.

Former Celtic striker Sutton believes that the Swedish outfit will try to play a tight game in the first leg in Glasgow.

“I’ve no doubt they will park the bus at Parkhead in the first leg and look to complete the job in the Swedbank Stadium in the return and I’m already anticipating two well organised teams,” the 42-year-old wrote in The Daily Record. “It’ll be a game of chess.”

Playing the first leg at home will be a disadvantage for Celtic, who will have to keep a clean sheet at Celtic Park.

If Malmo get an away goal and the game ends in a 2-1 win for the Bhoys, then Ronny Deila’s side will face a tough time in qualifying for the group stage of the Champions League.

However, Celtic do have a very good team who have done well in pre-season and in the opening days of the 2015-16 campaign..
