Chelsea pulled off a comfortable 2-0 win against Brighton & Hove Albion over the weekend in the Premier League. They will look to build on that performance as they go up against LOSC Lille on matchday two in the 2019-20 UEFA Champions League. Frank Lampard will back his young stars to shine away from home on October 3, 2019 (12:30 AM IST). Here is our take on both teams who are involved in Wednesday night's match at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
Chelsea have won seven of their last 12 away games in the UEFA Champions League (W7 D2 L3). The Blues lost their last two Champions League matches and have never lost three in a row. Frank Lampard will hope to maintain that record as he fields a determined starting XI at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy. After the disappointing 0-1 loss against Valencia in their first UCL game, Chelsea will look to bag all three points on October 2, 2019.
LOSC Lille have had a tough start to their domestic season this year. Christophe Galtier’s side suffered a 3-0 loss to Ajax in their opening UEFA Champions League encounter. Lille have failed to score in five of their six matches against English teams (W1 D1 L4). The French hosts will look to secure a major upset when they play Chelsea on home soil in the Champions League.
