Chelsea Prediction – Can Chelsea salvage Champions League campaign?

Chelsea’s bubble is in serious danger of bursting as the hosts were handed a third defeat in five matches on Saturday when they suffered a heavy 3-1 loss away at Premier League strugglers, Everton, and following previous defeats to Manchester City and West Ham, Frank Lampard’s side are losing ground on the teams above them.

Whilst there’s no need to push the panic button just yet with Chelsea still comfortably occupying 4th place and a 5-point cushion ahead of Manchester United, this Tuesday night clash with Lille takes on even more importance as failure to win this encounter could see Chelsea ‘relegated’ to the Europa League.

This would be a disaster for this Chelsea side who promised much in the early stages of the season, but although their league form has slumped in recent times, winning just 1 of their last 5 matches with a win over Aston Villa, The Blues are at least unbeaten in their last 4 matches in the Champions League.

Back-to-back wins against Lille 2-1 away and a 1-0 win at Ajax were followed by a 4-4 draw with Ajax and 2-2 against Valencia, meaning 3 of Chelsea’s last 4 matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals.

As a win seems risky, the overs looks the best option here.

Lille Prediction – Can Lille spoil Chelsea’s ambitions?

The French Ligue 1 visitors sit rock-bottom of Group H with just 1 point to their name after what has been a wretched Champions League campaign for Christophe Galtier’s side as they make their way over to London for this Matchday 6 clash with Chelsea.

Despite their woes in the Champions League, Lille picked up a third win on the trot in the domestic Ligue 1 on the weekend when they registered a 1-0 victory against Brest, which followed previous 1-0 wins against Dijon and Lyon respectively.

These recent successes in the French top flight are in stark contrast though to their exploits in the Champions League where they’ve lost 4 of their 5 matches in Group H to date having lost to Ajax home and away and losses to Chelsea and Valencia.

Lille’s only ‘highlight’ was to hold Valencia to a 1-1 draw at home, but having lost 8 of their last 12 Champions League ties away from home, it looks like being another evening of disappointment for the French club on Tuesday night.

 

Key-Facts – Chelsea vs Lille

  • 3 of Chelsea’s last 4 matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals in the CL
  • Lille have lost 8 of their last 12 Champions League ties away from home
  • In the only previous meeting, Chelsea beat Lille 2-1 away from home

 

Betting Tips Verdict

Chelsea should win this one with ease but recent results make the goals market more appealing with over 2.5 goals looking likely here.
