Malmo are the most successful club in Swedish football history, having won 16 league titles, as well as numerous domestic honours.
They lifted the Allsvenskan league title in 2010 and are currently first in this season’s title race.
They are regulars in European football and were finalists in the 1979 European Cup against Nottingham Forest.
They play their home games at the Swedbank Stadion, and beat Drogheda 2-0 in the first qualifying round.
England manager Roy Hodgson was in charge of Malmo between 1985 and 1989, guiding the club to five league titles during his tenure.

Meanwhile, Swans youngster Gwion Edwards came off the bench in the second half as he helped St Johnstone to a 2-1 aggregate win over Rosenborg in the Europa League second qualifying round.
Edwards, on loan at McDiarmid Park, played for the last 25 minutes as the Saints claimed a 1-1 draw.
They will now face Belarussian outfit Dinamo Minsk in the third qualifying round.
