This Wednesday, Chelsea moves to Lille for the second day of Group H of the Champions League. Both teams must react after being defeated on the first day.
Lille vs Chelsea
At the end of a last season as unpredictable as fantastic, the LOSC finished in the 2nd place of the championship of France, far behind the PSG but in front of Lyon. Qualified for the Champions League, the Dogues have taken a real lesson for their entry in the running. Opposed to an impressive Ajax last season, the men of Galtier lost in the Johan Cruyff Arena (3-0). In the league, Lille have 2 faces. Indeed, at home, the Dogues beat Nantes (2-1), Saint Etienne (3-0), Angers (2-1) and Strasbourg (2-0). On the other hand, it is more difficult for the out-of-town North-Westers who have not won a single match yet. This weekend, they were held in check on the lawn of Nice (1-1). As a result, Lille are trapped at the foot of the podium, in 4th place.
Winner of the Europa League and third in the Premier League last season, Chelsea has doubly validated its ticket for this group stage of the Champions League. But opposed to Valencia during the first day, the Londoners lost to Stamford Bridge (0-1). After 7 days of Premier League, Franck Lampard’s men have only 3 successes against Norwich on Day 3 (2-3), Wolverhampton (2-5) and this weekend in Stamford Bridge , against Brighton (2-0). Otherwise, they dropped heavily against Manchester United in the opening of the championship (4-0) and the reception of Liverpool (1-2) and conceded two draws against Leicester (1-1) and Sheffield ( 2-2) at home. It should be noted that Chelsea also lost the European Super Cup on penalties against Liverpool despite a good match.
The staff for Lille vs Chelsea
For Lille, rookie Weah is still the only one missing. Arrived this summer at the club, the Nigerian striker Osimhen Carbide and he is the co-top scorer of Ligue 1 with 6 achievements. He could this time be associated with Remy ahead in a 4-4-2 instead of the usual 4-2-3-1 Lille.
Chelsea will have to compose without his defensive frames Rüdiger and Emerson, as well as without the promising Loftus Cheek and substitute van Ginkel. On the other hand, the young Tammy Abraham is the good surprise of this beginning of the season with his 7 goals scored in 6 games.
