Reason For Chelsea vs Lille Betting Tips

  • Chelsea come into Tuesday’s game looking for a win, knowing it would take them into the last 16.
  • The hosts have won two of their last three home games but will want to tighten things up at the back, given they’ve conceded at least once in four of their last five games at Stamford Bridge.
  • Lille arrive with no pressure on them; already knowing they’ll finish bottom of the group.
  • With just one win from 10 away outings this season, the visitors aren’t the most powerful of away sides.

Chelsea looking for a return to form

There’s a lot to admire about the start Frank Lampard has made to life in the Chelsea dugout but the side have hit something of a bumpy patch of late. Following a 3-1 defeat at Everton at the weekend, the Blues have now won just one of their last five games and that’s not a streak they can afford to prolong on Tuesday.

Chelsea look good going forward but have real issues defensively, with both teams having scored in four of the west London side’s last five games now, as well as in three of their last four Champions League games. However, on paper, the hosts should have enough to win this match and, having already beaten Lille in France via a 2-1 margin, confidence can be high in getting the job done

Lille playing for pride

Arriving bottom of the group with just one point to their name, Lille have nothing more than pride on the line at Stamford Bridge. Christophe Galtier’s troops are a powerful outfit in Ligue 1 but have found the step up to Champions League a very tall order and simply haven’t been competitive. 

Having conceded 12 times in five matches, it’s clear where Lille’s problems lie in the competition and it’s hard to see improvement coming, given the side have lost four of their last five away games while conceding an average of two goals a match.

Nonetheless, coming in off the back of three straight wins and without any pressure on them, Lille could give Chelsea at least a slight degree of worry. The hosts will need to be switched on to secure victory.

A home win looks likely but Lille could notch

Ultimately, this is a match Chelsea really should be winning and any slip up would likely have disastrous consequences for the hosts. Man for man, Chelsea are a stronger outfit than Lille and while the visitors could find some joy against Chelsea’s leaky defence, the visitors’ problems defensively are even bigger and will likely be their undoing.

All things considered, we really like the look of backing a Chelsea win in combination with the Both Teams to Score line and feel it provides good value at current odds.

Lille have lost three of their last five away games despite notching. With Chelsea finding it hard to keep clean sheets, we think the visitors can get on the scoresheet but will still likely be on the end of a heavy defeat, with a 4-1 Chelsea win on the cards.
