Chelsea News and Form – Can the Blues beat Lille?

The Blues will go through to the round of sixteen with a win. A draw will be enough if Valencia lose at Ajax on the night. If Chelsea claim the win here and the match in Amsterdam is a draw, the Blues will top the group. It has been a good recovery from Chelsea after they lost their opening game of the campaign at home against Valencia. It has been a W2 D2 record from them since then. Chelsea will go into this one after back-to-back draws, a 4-4 against Ajax and then a 2-2 against Valencia.

The positive is that the goals have been flowing from them. The Blues have scored at least three goals in 6 of their last 13 European fixtures. Chelsea have lost just one of their last 13 European home games (W7 D5) so that’s a positive start in their favour. But not so good is the fact that Chelsea are winless in three home games (D2 L1). The Blues have claimed only one win in their last eight games against French opposition (D2 L4) which was the win at Lille in this campaign. Chelsea are W4 D3 L1 in their eight previous home games against French. All of Chelsea’s home wins over French teams have been with a clean sheet.

Lille News and Form – Can Lille upset the Blues?

Lille are bottom and that is where they are going to stay in the group. They only have the one pint on the board. So they can’t even play for third place and so may understandably, have zero interest in this game. Their one-point form this campaign was at home against Valencia on Matchday 3. On their group travels, they were beaten 4-1 in Spain and 3-0 at Ajax. So their record of only having made it past the group stage of the competition once (from six previous attempts) is going to remain.

Les Dogues have picked up only two wins in their last six road games in the Champions League proper. If you include qualification as well then it has been just three wins in 18 away games in the competition (D4 L11). The last time they won an away game in the group was back in 2012. In European action, Lille are winless in seven road fixtures (D2 L5). From their six previous matches in England, Les Dogues have picked up a W1 D1 L4 record, their only win there happening at Aston Villa in 2002. From their 13 previous games against English teams (home and away) Lille have produced 7 goals only.

Chelsea vs Lille Predictions

Chelsea to win: The defence of Chelsea has been their Achilles’ heel this season but it should survive the test in this one. This just needs a good night of Chelsea getting on the front foot. Lille are playing for nothing. Home win.
