UEFA fines Malmo over sub-standard pitch in Champions League

Juventus complained about the state of Malmo's pitch before their Champions League clash in November.

NYON, Switzerland -- UEFA has fined Malmo 100,000 euros for a sub-standard playing surface in the Champions League.

UEFA says its disciplinary panel cited "the poor condition of the pitch at the club's three home group stage matches."

Juventus players raised concerns about the Swedbank Stadium turf before their 2-0 win on Nov. 26.

The match was played three weeks after the spring-to-autumn Swedish season ended.

UEFA says half of Malmo's fine is deferred for a two-year probationary period.


Isaac Kiese Thelin signs for Bordeaux from Malmo

BORDEAUX, France -- Bordeaux have signed striker Isaac Kiese Thelin on a four-and-a-half-year deal from Malmo.

The 22-year-old completed his medical on Thursday before signing a contract reportedly worth 3.5 million euros.

Thelin made his Champions League debut this season and scored five goals in 14 league games as Malmo retained their Swedish title.

His performances also earned him his first caps with Sweden in November last year.

Massimo Allegri wary of Juventus Champions League visit to Malmo

Juventus coach Massimo Allegri has absolute respect for Malmo's record at home as he looks for the win which will keep the Bianconeri's hopes of reaching the last 16 of the Champions League alive on Wednesday.

Prior to their 2-0 defeat at home to Atletico Madrid -- a result Allegri felt was harsh on the Swedish side -- Malmo had not been beaten or breached in their last eight European games at the Malmo New Stadium.
