Lille – Statistics & Current Form
The French runner-up takes part in the group stage of the premier class for the first time since the 2012/13 season. Overall, it is the sixth participation in the premier class for the LOSC. Only once could the team survive the group stage (2006/07).
At the last appearance seven years ago, the club disappointed the whole line. At that time, the French had to take a defeat in all three home games. Overall, Lille has been without victory in the last nine international home games (four draws, five defeats). The last international home win at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy celebrated Lille in August 2012 against FC Copenhagen (2: 0).
However, the team of head coach Christophe Galtier is extremely home strong this season. Even after the departure of Nicolas Pepe act the northern French very successful. Especially at home, it has been running absolutely to desire. In Ligue 1, the runner-up won the four previous home games all for themselves. Lille has a goal difference of 9: 2.
Outstanding player is the former Wolfsburg Victor Osimhen, who scored seven goals this season. He was the first player since Mario Balotelli, who scored five or more goals in his first five Ligue 1 games. The hopes rest on his shoulders against the blues.

Chelsea – Statistics & Current Form
The reigning Europa League winner did not suffer a single home defeat last season. Overall, the team from London stayed eleven international home games without defeat (7-4-0 balance sheet). However, the dozen could not be filled because on Matchday 1 of the current season, the Lampard team had to beat the bats from Valencia 0: 1.
This extremely bitter defeat was unavoidably avoidable. In the final phase Chelsea had a great chance of equalizing from the penalty spot. Substitute Ross Barkley immediately grabbed the ball, but the regular penalty shootouts Jorginho and Willian tried to stop him. Barkley remained stubborn – and put the penalty to the top of the crossbar.
Speaking of penalties: this was the can opener in the 2-0 home win against Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend. Jorginho stayed in the 100th penalty, whistled in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge (78 for Chelsea, 22 for the opponent), sovereign and scored the 1-0. Finally, against the favorite opponent (ninth victory in the ninth league game), the first “to zero” in the current season.
Due to the existing transfer lock Chelsea was forced a little luckily and has to accelerate the offspring this season. Although the blues appear to be weaker in quality this season than in the previous year, a retirement in the group stage of the premier class would be a bitter disappointment.
France has not been a good place for the blues, who could only win one of eight appearances in the country of the world champion. After defeating Brighton’s Seagulls, Lampard sent a warning to his players. A self-runner will not be an away game in the Champions League, but the victory would be very important. Between Lille and Chelsea for the prediction on the success of the guests currently betting odds of over 2.00 are offered.
In terms of personnel, the Europa League winner will continue to be without Antonio Rüdiger, Emerson (both defenders), Mateo Kovacic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Marco van Ginkel (all midfield players). Bayern-Wunschobjekt Hudson-Odoi recently made a comeback and is yet another option.
Expected formation of Chelsea:
↪ Kepa – Alonso, Christensen, Tomori, Azpilicueta – Mount, Jorginho, Barkley – Willian, Abraham, Pedro
Last matches of Chelsea:
⚽️ 28.09.2019 – Chelsea Vs. Brighton & Hove Albion 2: 0 (Premier League)
