Lille vs Chelsea

, KO: 20:00 Oct 2, 2019, Stade Pierrer Mauroy
Chelsea

ROSS BARKLEY'S missed penalty proved costly for Chelsea in their opening Group H encounter and already has them in a tight spot.

The 1-0 home loss to Valencia was a damaging blow to the Blues' qualifications hopes and leaves them with little margin for error on their visit to Lille.

Inconsistency is to be expected from Frank Lampard's side as he works under a transfer ban and bloods an exciting generation of young talent, who followed up the midweek 7-1 League Cup shellacking of Grimsby with a 2-0 success against Brighton on Saturday.

There has rarely been a dull moment in the first few months of Lampard's tenure. Among the highs have been a few lows though – an opening-day 4-0 thumping at Man United, a 2-2 home draw with newly-promoted Sheffield United and the damaging Champions League loss at home to Valencia.

So it's hard to tell what Chelsea will turn up against a Lille side who prop up the section after being convincingly beaten 3-0 away to Ajax. At home, though, the French outfit are a much tougher proposition, having won eight successive Ligue 1 games, including a 5-1 rout of all-conquering PSG.

Lille netted 2+ in all but one of those eight victories, so Chelsea's defence will have to deal with a fair bit of pressure. Saturday's win over Brighton was the Blues' first clean sheet of the season, with six of their nine games landing both teams to score, so go for btts at 10-13 with 10bet.

Chelsea look a tad short to win at a best 11-10 with Unibet. The hosts are as big as 71-25 with Marathonbet while the draw – at 13-5 with Marathonbet – wouldn't be a disaster for either side.

With Lille having suffered just one defeat in 13 at home, I'm backing them to take at least a point, with Marathonbet offering 43-50 on the hosts double chance.

Chelsea's Brazilian midfielder Jorginho is averaging a booking every second game this season and should be considered for a card at 7-4 with Unibet in what could be a feisty affair in France.
