Preview: Malmo v Swans

8th August 2013

The Swans will be looking to book their place in the next round of the Europa League when they take on Malmo at the Swedbank Stadion (6.45pm UK time).
Michael Laudrup's side have a 4-0 advantage from last week's clash at the Liberty, as goals from Michu, Wilfried Bony (2) and Alejandro Pozuelo all but secured the Swans' place in the play-off round.
But the visitors will be looking to produce another good performance as they look ahead to the start of the new Barclays Premier League season next weekend.
Laudrup's men welcome reigning champions Manchester United to SA1 as they bid to build on a successful start to their European adventure.

Team news
Pablo Hernandez (muscle) and Jonjo Shelvey (illness) miss out for the visitors as they look to book their spot in the play-off round.
Michael Laudrup is also expected to make changes from the side that started against Malmo at the Liberty last week.
Meanwhile, Malmo duo Magnus Eriksen and Tokelo Rantle are doubts after limping out of their weekend win over Halmstad.

What they said
Swans boss Michael Laudrup: "Last week was fantastic for us. To win 4-0 and keep a clean sheet was great - but our main target is to get to the next round.
"Another clean sheet would be great as we have only given away one goal in pre-season, and winning and not conceding goals is fantastic.
"But most importantly, I want to see another good performance from us before we start the Premier League season."

Malmo boss Rikard Norling: "We are giving it a serious try and bigger miracles have happened. But our focus is to play better than we did last week, especially offensively.
"If we win 2-0 and get knocked out, but if the performance is good, then that's what we have to focus on."
