UEFA Champions League -- Chelsea vs Lille Game Preview

Analysis:

Their forthcoming Champions League tie sees Chelsea playing Lille on Tuesday.


Chelsea
Finishing second in the group stages, Chelsea were comfortably through to the knockout rounds in the end. Chelsea are currently unbeaten in each of their last six outings, including five straight wins in that time. Chelsea secured a 0-1 Premier League victory versus Crystal Palace over the weekend. Before that, they shared a 1-1 FIFA Club World Cup draw with Palmeiras. Chelsea have scored two or more goals in their last six home matches.




Lille
Lille finished top of Group G with 11 points from six games, one point above second-placed Salzburg. However, the defending French champions have struggled for consistency since the turn of the year, winning two, drawing two and losing three of their seven games in 2022. Lille head into Tuesday’s game fresh off the back of a disappointing goalless draw with rock-bottom Metz in Ligue 1, where they are currently languishing in 11th place.


Prediction
Lille were winless in four of their past six games, and they had also remained so in three of their preceding four road trips. Despite their unconvincing performance, Chelsea should build on the victory and come away with a vital first-leg win.

Chelsea to Win with AH -1.5
Final Results: 2-0
