Lille OSC vs Chelsea F.C. Prediction 16 March 2022

Tournament: UEFA Champions League
Location: Stade Pierre-Mauroy, Villeneuve-d'Ascq
Match date: 03/16/2022 at 20:00

French Lille will host English Chelsea in the second leg of the Champions League round of 16.

In the previous three rounds of Ligue 1, Lille dealt with Lyon (1:0) and Clermont (4:0), and also had a goalless draw with Saint-Etienne. It was reliable defensive actions that helped Les Dogues ascend to sixth position with 43 points, a goal difference of 37:35 and a minimal gap from the European Cup zone.

Amid looming financial troubles, Chelsea are still doing well in the English Premier League. Five consecutive victories over Tottenham (2:0), Crystal Palace (1:0), Burnley (4:0), Norwich (3:1) and Newcastle (1:0) left the Blues in an honorable third place with almost one hundred percent chance to finish in the UCL zone.

In the first round of the duel between Lille and Chelsea, the British earned a two-goal lead. We think that in order to maintain the status quo, the guests will go on the defensive and defend the desired result.
