Malmo FF Overview
The representative Malmo FF from Sweden had a quite successful season when winning the domestic championship and winning the only ticket to attend the UEFA Champions League 2021/22 arena. The team’s most impressive achievement in the arena in recent years is reaching the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League 2019/20.
Before coming to this Playoff round, coach Jon Dahl Tomasson’s team had excellently overcome Riga FC, HJK Helsinki, and Glasgow Rangers. Malmo FF’s attack is still showing good scoring performance when in the last matches they have continuously shot at least 2 goals per game.
The representative Ludogorets from Bulgaria has once again successfully defended the throne in the national championship. Although in recent seasons they have always appeared in the European arena, they often have to leave the tournament quite early. And in the 2020/21 season in the UEFA Europa League arena, Ludogorets only stopped in the group stage but could not bring home 1 honor point. And in the previous round, Ludogorets had a rather difficult victory against Olympiakos Piraeus by penalty shootout.

The performance of Tomasson’s men deserves credit, winning 4 and undefeated 6 matches on the way to the final qualifying round. On the other side, Ludogorets also maintains an unbeaten record, but the defense is showing signs of decline. Conceding 3 consecutive matches against Mura, experts do not appreciate the stability of Ludogorets. The opponent this time owns top strikers, it is difficult for Bulgarian representatives to avoid leaving empty-handed.
