Lille will try to overturn a two-goal disadvantage against Chelsea in the Champions League when the two teams meet at Stade Pierre-Mauroy on Wednesday.
In the second leg, Les Dogues face an uphill battle, but one thing is certain: they will leave their hearts on the field.
The bad news for the hosts is that key midfielder Renato Sanches was injured in the weekend’s goalless draw with St. Etienne.
The Blues, on the other hand, are in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. Following a hard-fought 1-0 win over Newcastle, Thomas Tuchel’s side are in great spirits, and with a number of chances to score on the break in the return leg, an away win should be contemplated.
Ben Chilwell is still out, while Hudson-Odoi, the speedy winger, is a huge doubt and will be assessed before the game.
This match will take place on March 16, 2022, at 21:00.
0-1 is my prediction.
Away Win is the best bet.
