Chelsea vs Lille Match Preview
Chelsea’s equation to reach the Champions League knockout stage is refreshingly simple – win against Lille and they are through, which they are fully expected to do.
The Blues’ domestic form has become worrying with three Premier League defeats out of four, but at least they can put their continental commitments to bed until February after this match whether they stay alive in the Champions League or drop into the Europa League.
There should really be little doubt that Frank Lampard’s side will remain in the bigger competition because Lille have collected only one point from their first five Group H games and were beaten 2-1 at home in the reverse fixture to this.
What would complete a perfect night for Chelsea, in addition to them winning, of course, is Ajax opening the door by failing to beat Valencia at home in order to secure top spot in the table and theoretically an easier draw for the round-of-16.
And, of course, having their transfer ban lifted means the London club can now strengthen their squad in January to increase their chances of making a serious challenge for silverware in the second half of the campaign.
Lille’s European adventure will be over for the season after this game and although they have won all of their last three matches 1-0, Chelsea represent much sterner opposition than those Ligue 1 opponents and we fancy this to be a routine success for the Premier League club.
