LOSC vs Chelsea

| |

In previous seasons, Chelsea has always been a strong candidate for the ticket to advance in the group stage but this season, they are no longer rated as before.  Losing the brightest star Hazard, again subject to a transfer ban, Chelsea's forces are not as strong as before.  They have called for young players to play well on loaned clubs such as M.Monut, T.Abraham, ... However, under the guidance of young Lampard, the young squad of Chelsea is still  make people very curious and waiting.

Falling into the H group is quite balanced with names like Lille, Ajax, Valencia, Chelsea will need to make every effort in every match because only one defeat will make them further away with the ticket to go on.  However, in the first match of the group stage, the Blues had to take a 0-1 defeat against Valencia.  Although there was no point, Chelsea did not play so badly and with some luck they could get 1 point.

The Blues will march to Lille's yard in the second round of Group H. Their performance is not very good when they only won 3, drew 1 and lost 2 of the last 6 appearances.  However, Lille even played worse than that.  In the last 6 matches, the home team has only won 2 matches, drawn 2 matches and lost 2 matches, including a 3-goal loss not to beat Ajax in the first round of the Champions League.  In essence, Lille is only a mid-range team in France and this is the first time in 5 years, this team has just returned to the continent's No. 1 arena.
