The final round of Champions League Group H fixtures have fallen nicely for Chelsea, who are expected to progress with a win over Lille in London.
The Blues have already beaten the same side 2-1 away and the French outfit have nothing to play for but pride in the return game at Stamford Bridge.
We’re happy to take 4/5 for a clinical home win to nil for our opening Chelsea vs Lille prediction.
A Look At Chelsea’s Betting Odds
There has been a tight three-way tussle to advance from this pool between Chelsea, Ajax and Valencia, but victory here would be enough to send the Blues through.
They recovered from a Matchday 1 loss to Valencia at this venue to prevail against Lille at Stade Pierre-Mauroy, where Tammy Abraham and Willian netted either side of Victor Osimhen’s strike.
Frank Lampard’s side then stunned Ajax in Amsterdam, with Michy Batshuayi bagging the only goal of the game late on.
There was a hint of good fortune about Chelsea’s 4-4 home draw with the Dutch giants, who had two players sent off when 4-1 in front.
However, they now have the chance to progress on merit following an incident-packed 2-2 stalemate in Valencia.
Mateo Kovacic and Christian Pulisic were on target at the Mestalla and Kepa Arrizabalaga saved Daniel Parejo’s penalty.
Lampard will be concerned by a run of three defeats in four Premier League matches, but that should inspire him to tighten things up here.
Looking at the Chelsea vs Lille odds, we like 11/2 for a steady 2-0 home victory.
A Look At Lille’s Betting Odds
Lille are languishing at the foot of the table after picking up only one point in five games, when a stoppage-time strike by Jonathan Ikone helped them draw 1-1 with 10-man Valencia in France.
Christophe Galtier’s side then played well for an hour at the Mestalla, but collapsed from 1-0 up to lose 4-1 during the final 30 minutes.
Going down 3-0 and 2-0 to Ajax further exposed their limitations and it is hard to see there being much left in the tank for this trip.
Galtier will have been buoyed by a trio of domestic 1-0 triumphs over Dijon, Lyon and Stade Brest.
However, they are still among the lowest scorers in Ligue 1 away from home, netting just five times in eight road trips and suffering five defeats on their travels.
Let’s finish off our Chelsea vs Lille betting tips by taking 10/1 for Tammy Abraham to break the deadlock in a 2-0 home triumph.
Everton 3-1 CHELSEA – Mateo Kovacic
LILLE 1-0 Stade Brest – Victor Osimhen
Head-to-head: Lille 1-2 Chelsea
