Lille Prediction – Can Lille get off the mark?

Sitting bottom of Group H with just 1 point to their name, Lille look resigned to their fate of not only failing to reach the knockout stages of the Champions League but also missing out on the next stage of the Europa League too as they prepare for the visit of Ajax on Wednesday night.

Early back-to-back defeats to tonight’s opponents, Ajax, 3-0 away from home was swiftly followed by a 2-1 loss at home to Chelsea and this set the tone for the remainder of Lille’s campaign in this competition, and even though they drew 1-1 at home with Valencia, they were soundly beaten 4-1 in the corresponding fixture away from home on Matchday 4.

Overall, it’s now 7 Champions League ties without a win for the French Ligue 1 side, losing 5 of these and failing to score in 3 of the 7 matches too. Recent results on home turf at their Stade Pierre-Mauroy haven’t been much better either as the hosts have also lost 5 of their last 7 matches in their own backyard.

This poor run of form at home certainly doesn’t bode well for the visit of Ajax here on Wednesday evening as they lost to their Dutch counterparts 3-0 away from home in the earlier fixture.

Ajax Prediction – Can Ajax get a jump on rivals?

Ajax sit top of Group H by virtue of a better goal difference over rivals Chelsea and Valencia, but with all three teams sitting on 7 points apiece prior to this crucial round of fixtures on Matchday 5, Ajax will be desperate to make the most of lille’s current poor run of form in this competition in order to get a clear lead at the top of the group.

The Dutch visitors have lost just 1 of their 4 matches to date in Group H which was a 1-0 loss at home to Chelsea, and although they grabbed a point in the return fixture at Stamford Bridge in a thrilling 4-4 draw, Ajax will feel it was a definite case of dropping 2 crucial points as they led 4-1 halfway through the 2nd half, only to be pegged back by Chelsea.

Nevertheless, Ajax started their Champions League campaign in positive fashion by recording back-to-back wins against Lille 3-0 at home and a 3-0 win away from home at Valencia, and they’ll no doubt be keen to bounce back with a win tonight.

The visitors also possess a strong record away from home in this competition as they’re unbeaten in their last 14 matches on their travels, so it looks like Lille will have their cut out if they’re to get a result against Ajax here.

  • Lille have lost 5 of their last 7 home matches in the Champions League
