Reason for Chelsea vs Lille Predictions
The hardest part begins for Chelsea, who have started defending their title this season. The London club passed the group hurdle without incident, although it gave up its first place to Juventus. The fault of his draw conceded on the last day in Russia against Zenit 3-3, his 2nd hitch on this group stage after his 1-0 defeat in Turin. Still, under the orders of Thomas Tuchel, the Blues are having a serious season but fall on stronger than them in the league. They rank 3rd, 16 points behind Manchester City, which has taken off. However, Chelsea can boast of having won the Club World Cup two weeks ago at the expense of Al-Hilal 1-0 in the semis and Palmeiras 2-1 in the final. On the side of Chelsea, Chilwell will no longer tread the lawns this season. The starting left side must recover from an injury to the anterior ligament of a knee. Hakim Ziyech plays fantastically and creates a lot of problems for the opponent’s defense. Many clubs are ready to give a fortune for the arrival of this guy. Timo Werner is an amazing player and is unstoppable in a one-on-one game. He should improve on his performance from last season. N’Golo Kante is one of the best midfielders in the world, all praise for him.
Fifteen years later, LOSC is back in the knockout stages of the Champions League. They will rely in particular on their leader David. Author of 16 goals in all competitions, the Canadian literally exploded this season. He scored three goals in the group, one in each match of the return phase, but is going through a small crisis of confidence since he has not yet shaken the nets in 2022. Lille had registered for this final phase of the CL their rookies Ben Arfa, who crossed paths with Chelsea when he was playing at Newcastle, and Zhegrova, who came to compensate for the departures of Yazici (CSKA Moscow), Ikoné (Fiorentina), and Reinildo (Atlético de Madrid). Jonathan Bamba is a great player, and many teams are interested in this guy. He has good dribbles, and his greatest virtue is speed. He is the future of French football. Jonathan David is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, he has excellent ball control, and he can be satisfied with his games.
Chelsea is a big favorite in this match, and they are expected to solve the question of the winner at halftime.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
