Reason for Lille vs Chelsea Predictions
On the back of their boardroom woes, Chelsea could still manage to keep their winning run, and they will be hoping for the same when they travel to France to take on Lille in the return leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie. Hosts Lille trail 2-0 in this game and will be looking to overturn their loss at Stamford Bridge two weeks ago. The French champions warmed up for the European champions with a 0-0 draw at home to Saint-Etienne. That was their third straight unbeaten outing and fourth clean sheet in five matches. What they will need more for this game, though, is to strengthen their attack. Lille have failed to score in three of their last five matches. Jonathan Bamba is a great player, and many teams are interested in this guy. He has good dribbles, and his greatest virtue is speed, and 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. The Lille boss Jocelyn Gourvennec does not have any fitness worries at all ahead of this clash, thanks to a fully injury-free group ready to go.
Chelsea is coming from a hard-fought 1-0 win over Newcastle United, Kai Havertz scoring in the 89th minute to keep their league title challenge hopes alive. That was Havertz’s fourth goal in three matches, and he was also on target in the 2-0 first-leg win. That win came on the back of the club owner getting sanctioned by the government, but the team rose from the uncertainties and will be hoping for a continuation here. They have four straight wins, and with a 2-0 lead, you’d feel Chelsea have this wrapped up. Three times in the last four matches, Chelsea has scored two or more goals, and they have three clean sheets in the previous five games. 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.
Chelsea has a two-goal advantage from the first match, and Tuchel’s team is the favorite in the rematch as well.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
