Chelsea host Lille at Stamford Bridge tonight and the major thing in the mind of Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is to get a win and nothing else.

Greek referee Tasos Sidiropoulos will officiate the match, and his assistants are Polychronis Kostaras and Lazaros Dimitriadis

The fourth official for this game is Ioannis Papadopoulos and the VAR officials are Bastian Dankert and Mark Borsch (Germany)

Sidiropoulos has taken charge of two Champions League fixtures this season, and has issued out 8 yellow and no red card.

Moreso, former Real Madrid and Manchester United striker Michael Owen has backed Chelsea to win this game.

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.”
