Sounds simple, doesn’t it? However, Chelsea haven’t made things easy for themselves in this competition and now they come into this crucial game in the midst of a bad run.

They’ve won just two of their last seven, the Blues slipping to a 3-1 defeat at managerless Everton on Saturday.

Defensive errors were again on display at Goodison and that iffy backline may be the key to profits in this game.

Chelsea have been far from watertight at the back this season – Ajax tore them apart in the last CL game at the Bridge, scoring four times – and even though Lille won’t have a complete first XI out, it’s not hard to see Chelsea conceding, particularly given Fikayo Tomori missed training on Monday.

Lille boss Christophe Galtier admitted Friday’s game with Montpellier was his team’s priority this week – they cannot even reach the Europa League by finishing third in the group – but he added on team selection: “We do not want to be ridiculous”.

With the likes of Jose Fonte set for a rest and Cheikh Niasse suspended, Chelsea will be given enough encouragement to grab the result they need.

But 2/1 about them winning whilst conceding is much more attractive than 2/9 about any kind of win.

Former Chelsea striker Loic Remy is among those ready to come in for Lille and he can help them grab a goal and deliver a decent profit.

For a longer price, try Mateo Kovacic to score.

He’s netted twice in his last four games and has had other chances too.

The Croatian has been getting into more advanced positions and being encouraged to shoot more.

Playing the best football of his Chelsea career, he’s flowing with confidence right now and against makeshift opponents, backing him to score at 13/2 could well reward.

    Report - Chelsea 2-1 Lille

    Date published: 12/10/2019 11:52:31 PM

    Chelsea booked their place in the last-16 of the Champions League with an unconvincing 2-1 win over Lille in Group H.

    The Blues were boosted by the return of Antonio Rudiger for only his second start this season, while Emerson was also back in the starting XI alongside Jorginho.

    Lille made sweeping changes having already been eliminated from the tournament and on a rainy night at Stamford Bridge, their much-changed side struggled.

    After dominating early on, Chelsea took the lead on 19 minutes, Tammy Abraham finishing smartly after good work from Willian down the right.

    Emerson then stung the palms of Mike Maignan but the left-back did have a more significant impact after 35 minutes when the unmarked Cesar Azpilicueta met his corner and glanced a front post header home.

    A 2-0 lead at the break seemed fair on the hosts but they almost increased their advantage just seconds into the second half, first Willian and then Christian Pulisic forcing saves from Maignan.

    The second half continued on a similar vein, Chelsea enjoying plenty of position and almost holding Lille at arm’s length.

    When Les Dogues did come forward, they lacked any real quality and were hit by a blow when Maignan was taken off with an injury.

    However, that setback seemed to inspire Lille and they got a goal back with 12 minutes to go when former Chelsea man Loic Remy capitalised on good work by substitute Jonathan Bamba to fire in off the bar.

    The grandstand finish that was promised never materialised though and Chelsea are through to the last 16 of the Champions League.
