Ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League game against Lille, Michael Owen has backed Chelsea to beat Lille.

Victory over Lille on Tuesday will see the Blue qualify for the next round of the Champions League.

Owen told Betvictor: “A win will ensure Chelsea’s place in the last 16 against a Lille side who have won their last three league games 1-0 although they have only picked up a single point in their five previous group games in the competition.

“The Blues won the reverse fixture 2-1 in France on Matchday 2 and Lille are without a win in their last seven away games in European competition.

“Chelsea continue to struggle to keep clean sheets – just three in 12 home games in all competitions this season – and Lille can play their part in what promises to be a terrific occasion at Stamford Bridge.”
