Chelsea vs Lille predicted line-ups and team news tonight


Frank Lampard is under pressure to get it right here against Lille with Chelsea’s Champions League campaign to be decided tonight.

Victory will earn them a place in the last 16, as Ajax and Valencia, their Group H rivals, face off in the other game in group H.

Everton gave Chelsea a reality check on Saturday, outworking them in a 3-1 win.

But after a mixed bag in Europe this season, Lampard will be content at a chance to seal qualification to the knock-out phase.

Here are the predicted line-ups for the game.

When and where is the match? 

The match is on Tuesday at 20:00 GMT at Stamford Bridge, London. 

Prediction

The Blues were poor at Goodison Park at the weekend, weak defending set-pieces and crosses and could not match the desire of Everton, but Lille pose a different threat with the game’s tempo likely to suit the slicker passing of the hosts. We expect the Blues to bounce back here and clinch a place in the last 16. We’ll go with 2-0.

Odds

Chelsea: 2/9 

Draw: 5/1 

Lille 12/1
