Chelsea will welcome Lille to Stamford Bridge for a matchday 0 fixture in Europe UEFA Champions League. The last meeting on 10th December 2019 ended in a Chelsea 2-1 win. Both sides have met two times in the most recent seasons. Chelsea has won 2 matches, and Lille failed to win on every occasion. Recent outings average 3.00 goals, while both teams score 100% of the time.
Chelsea’s latest fixture against Zenit ended in an away 3-3 draw. I expected more from their creative midfielders, but it just wasn’t their day. Chelsea scored in both halves in the 2nd, 62nd and 85th minute.
Lille’s previous game in the competition versus Wolfsburg ended in an away 3-1 win. Although LOSC countered for most of the game, it was more than enough to win. Lille was much better in the second half and scored in the 11st, 72nd and 78th minute.
Since the start of the season, Chelsea is more dominant at home. They have three wins out of 3 games on home soil. The Blues has one of the best defence in the league. They have kept a clean sheet in 100% of their home games.
Lille has picked up 11 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Lille has collected 2.00 points on average per away game, compared to 1.67 at home. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Lille kept a clean sheet in just 0% of their visits.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Recently they enjoy playing at home, having won three consecutive matches. The Pensioners is yet to lose at home, being undefeated in three games.
Les Dogues got the three points in their previous away games but are still off their best. Their away record does not convince me that they have what it takes to avoid defeat on Tuesday.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Chelsea wins on average 3.00 points per home game, compared to 2.00 points per away game for Lille. My prediction is Chelsea to win.
