Lille faced Monaco in their last match. In the first give or take 30 minutes of the match, the club looked pretty good and created a comfortable two-goal advantage. However, the happiness did not last long. Towards the end of the first half, Monaco still managed to level the score and go into the break losing by one goal. In the second half, the Mastiffs sat back and tried to keep the score down but failed to do so. The result was a scoreless 2-2 draw. Lille finished 12th in the Ligue 1 table with 17 points.
What about the performance in the Champions League group stage? It’s pretty intense there. Lille are in second place, two points behind first-place Salzburg (5). However, Germany’s Wolfsburg have the same number of points, and Sevilla have three points. If they lose, the club will drop one point, which is why they cannot afford to lose.
At the moment, the Austrian club occupies the first position in the table of Group G with seven points in their asset. Salzburg’s position is rather precarious, and in case of defeat, they will go down to the second place. Therefore, in the match against the reigning Ligue 1 champion, the club will likely play from the defence. In their last meeting in the Champions League group stage, the Bulls lost to Germany’s Wolfsburg (1-2) by the difference of one goal.
Expert Betting Tips
The previous meeting between these opponents ended in a 2-1 victory for the Bulls, but the game took place in Austria. Now, the situation and conditions are completely different. In our opinion, Lille are the favourites. The French club must snatch a win on home soil and take the lead. We think that Lille will outplay their opponent in class, but we recommend betting on their zero handicap as a precautionary measure.
