Our "Prediction Wizard" will calculate, based on the current available betting odds, the implicit winning percentages for the possible outcomes in a match. This will be updated as soon as we fetch the odds from the betting sites and keep updating until the match is finished.
Lille will be taking on Chelsea in the second leg of their last-16 match in the UEFA Champions League 2021-22 season.
Chelsea holds a 2-0 lead after the first leg and would be very confident of getting another win to progress further. Not only is Chelsea the defending Champions League titleholder but it is also under intense scrutiny thanks to the sanctions put on it by the English government. Thomas Tuchel seems to have found a way to motivate the players on the field, though, and that is all that matters.
Lille is certainly the underdog in this contest but it should not be underestimated. It has five successive clean sheets in Ligue 1 and is certainly capable of putting up a strong defense.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Lille vs Chelsea Champions League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at Stade Pierre-Mauroy, Lille, France on the 16th of March 2022.
We think Chelsea is at a huge advantage here because it has a two-goal cushion coming into this match. We saw how Manchester City used a big goal cushion in its second leg of the Champions League to just sit back and run the clock out. A similar strategy could be put in play here by Chelsea as it will progress by simply avoiding defeat.
It is Lille that has to do all the running and we just do not see it being able to make the moves needed to win. A draw is tempting but with Chelsea in excellent form recently, we are just going to stick with the favorites and take the short odds.
Bet on Chelsea to win.
