Match Preview & Team News
Lille will be hoping to get up to speed in Group H after losing to both Ajax and Chelsea in the opening two rounds. They have an imperative to clinch the spoils in the third-round clash with Spanish Valencia to keep any hopes of the knockout stage alive. The visitors have calculations of their own, though, as they share the second place with Chelsea after winning and losing one game apiece so far.
The hosts go into the tie winless in four successive matches across competitions. The weekend’s 2-1 loss at Toulouse dropped them down to 7th place in the Ligue 1 ladder as Chris Galtier’s men extended their poor spell of form on the road. The majority of their points came at Stade Pierre-Mauroy where Lille won four and drew one of five outings in the domestic league bagging as many as 11 goals in the process.
The recent acquisition Victor Osimhen has usually been responsible for the finishing touch. The Nigerian forward was on target in each of his team’s five home matches. He also found the back of the net in the 1-2 loss to Chelsea in the previous round of the Champions League.
Valencia did little to impress on their travels in La Liga. They won only one of four away games and sit at a disappointing 10th place in the ladder as a consequence. They conceded seven goals on the road, meaning Osimhen should have space to keep his stellar form going on Wednesday evening.
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Lille have never beaten Valencia (1 draw and 3 losses), but the fact the Bats only won one of four away matches in their domestic league makes the draw the most likable of three outcomes. Such a scenario is paid at the odds of 23/10.
Goals Market Prediction
Both Teams To Score is our alternate bet at 3/4 odds as neither of the two sides has reasons to be proud of their defensive form going into the match.
