Lille host Chelsea tonight hoping to overturn an 0-2 deficit after the first leg. Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic were on the scoresheet that evening and Chelsea now have one foot in the quarter finals. With everything going on around the club, you have to admire how Thomas Tuchel has guided his team through the storm.
If Lille have any hope of turning this tie around it starts with keeping a clean sheet. They’ve kept it water tight in Ligue 1 this month but Chelsea have more quality than the clubs they’ve played during that time. Good luck scoring twice on the Blues who will be content on sitting back and defending their lead.
All things considered this is a match that screams unders. With the goal line sitting at 2.5 there are a few results that make too much sense and cash an under bet; 0-0, 1-0, 0-1, 1-1 and 0-2 are all winners and scores Chelsea will be happy with. For these reasons I’m taking Under 2.5 at -146 on FD.
