Chelsea vs Lille: Predictions and odds
Chelsea are strong favorites against Lille. The Blues play home and are the current reigning Champions League winners. The odds are -330 at bookmakers. A draw seems more possible but the bookmakers also see it difficult to happen so bets are at +440 odds. Meanwhile, Lille’s victory is at +900 odds.
Chelsea will face Lille on a positive run, as the Blues have won their last 5 matches in all competitions. Thomas Tuchel's side recently won the FIFA Club World Cup after beating Palmeiras and, following that, the Stamford Bridge side defeated Crystal Palace in the Premier League.
Lille's last match was against Metz, whom they were unable to beat in the matchday 21 of Ligue 1 (0-0). The home side were unable to take advantage of their superiority and conceded a poor goalless draw against the bottom team. The reigning Ligue 1 champions are in the tenth position.
