Chelsea vs Lille Betting Tips

The Champions League is back again, and the Champions will take on Lille as they battle to retain their crown. Being recently crowned the world club champions, Chelsea would fight to maintain their status among the European elites by moving further in this competition.

The French Giants Lille are still in this competition after qualifying for their group. They have had an excellent champions league run and are not underrated. 

Lille requested that their league match be shifted earlier (Friday) to help them prepare more for this game, but will that be enough to stop Chelsea? We don’t know yet, but here is the team news for this game.

Chelsea Form and Team News

Chelsea has been in decent form in their recent games, even though their performances have been far from convincing. They are the newly crowned world champions after beating Palmeiras 2-1 in the CWC a few days ago in the final. 

In 90 minutes, Chelsea has won 3 matches and drawn 2. However, their draws turned to a win during the extra time, making the team unbeaten in their last 5 games in all competition.

Chelsea might be without some squad members for this clash, and they are Chilwell, Hudson Odoi, Aziplicueta, James, and Mount.

Lille Form and Team News

Lille has been getting unwanted results in their recent games even though they have been decent this season. They have only won 2 games in their last 5 matches, lost 2, and drawn 1. 

They won their last 2 Champions League matches against Wolfsburg and Salzburg comfortably (scoring 4 and conceding 1), which saw them progress to the UCL round 16 knockout stage.

For the team news, Lille has some players likely to miss this clash due to injury, and they are Lihadji and Sanches.

Chelsea is Casumo’s bookie favorite to win this fixture at 1.30 odds, while Lille is placed at 10.50 odds. If the match is to be a draw, the odds are 5.20.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Chelsea hasn’t been in a flair form in their recent games, but they have been doing just enough to win their matches. They are the newly-crowned European champions, and they would love to live up to that name as a return to Europe this midweek.

Lille is obviously the underdogs in this match, and they will be looking to hurt Chelsea from the onset. Especially since the away goal rule has been scrapped, we don’t expect them to sit back, and they’ll likely attack to exploit Chelsea. 

Here are our tips for this clash:

Tip 1: Chelsea to Win

Checking Chelsea’s recent games, it is clear that they are more in-form in cup matches than in league games. 

Their clashes in cup games have seen better results and performances than their recent league games. We think a similar outcome is expected against Lille in this Champions League encounter.

Checking the head-to-head between these teams, Chelsea has won Lille the last two times they clashed in the champions league.

For Chelsea to win, the odds are 1.30 odds at the Casumo sportsbook.

Tip 2: Lille +3 Goal Handicap

Yes, Chelsea has been winning their matches, but they have been winning unconvincingly. It’s been a while since Chelsea won a match by more than two goals in all their recent matches played. The last time Chelsea scored more than 3 goals was against Chesterfield (5-1). 

Also, Lille is not a small team to be underrated, and they have the pedigree to go into this match and challenge Chelsea. Even though they lost to Chelsea the last time they met, it wasn’t with more than 1 goal, and we think a similar outcome would be expected.

For Lille +3 Handicap, the odds are the Casumo bookie is 1.26.


The current European and world champions will be going against the French champions, which means this much will be highly interesting to watch. 

Even though Chelsea looks stronger on paper, they have had unconvincing performances in their recent games, and we expect Lille to exploit this weakness.

Will you be watching this game? We think it will be pulsating.
