Lille vs Chelsea match forecast for the UEFA Champions League

Lille take on Chelsea at the Stade Pierre Morois on Wednesday evening, March 16, in the return leg of the Champions League 1/8 final. Will the home side be able to mount a comeback in front of their fans? Full statistics and all current odds for the match can be found at 1xbet.

Lille

The Dane are sixth in the French league table. They have collected 43 points after 28 rounds, an incredible 22 points behind leading PSG. The goal difference is 37/35. The home side have won twice in their last three matches, before settling for a 0-0 draw with Saint-Etienne last weekend. Transfer news includes the January signing of Hatem Ben Arfa, now 34.

The participation of key attacking midfielder Renato Sanchez in the upcoming game is also in doubt. “Lille qualified for the play-offs thanks to a group win against Wolfsburg, Sevilla and Salzburg.

Chelsea

The Aristocrats are among the top three teams in the Premier League this season. Thomas Tuchel’s side have scored 59 points in 28 games played. They have scored 57 goals and conceded 19. There have been 10 victories in the last 13 meetings. Last Saturday, the Pensioners beat Newcastle 1-0 at Stamford Bridge thanks to an 89th minute goal from Kaja Haverz. The Magpies Georginho (6 goals) and Mason Mount (8 goals), as well as the aforementioned German winger (6 goals in 7 recent meetings) also shine.

Right-back Reece James has returned from injury. Only left back Ben Chilwell, who was out for the rest of the season, is in the sack. However, it is worth taking into account the factor of recent events around the club (the situation with the sanctions imposed on Roman Abramovich and ban on any financial transactions by the Blues), which undoubtedly distract the players and the football process.

Opposite encounters

Prior to the February 22 encounter (a 2-0 win for the English), the teams met each other three years ago in the 2019-20 Champions League group. Back then, the Londoners both celebrated a victory: 2-1 at home and 1-2 away.

Lille v Chelsea match prediction

The Doges are finally close to last season’s form, climbing confidently in the Ligue 1 standings. Before the match in London, the French were in 11th place, but now they have climbed into the Eurocup zone. The Red and Blue will need to attack and score from the start. The visitors are not mentally well, but they can certainly count on scoring an own goal. We think that we can expect an exchange of goals.
