Chelsea could score 3 goals against Lille if Tuchel uses this strong lineup

Chelsea will travel to France and play against LIlle in the second leg of the UEFA champions league round of 16 tie. The blues currently holds the advantage of advancing to the next round after they beat LIlle in the first leg which took place at Stamford bridge. Chelsea were victorious in their last premier league game and this has boosted the team’s morale ahead of this fixture.

Chelsea has one of the best form in the Europe’s top five leagues and will do everything within their power to knock LIlle out of the competition. However, LIlle has been in-form in Ligue-1 since they lost to the blues at Stamford bridge. They will likely try to beat Chelsea but it might end up to be a lost cause. The image below depicts how Chelsea could lineup against LIlle at Stade Pierre Mauroy stadium.Starting Lineup ( 3-4-3 formation).

Forwards: Hudson-Odoi, Romelu Lukaku and Mount.

Defenders: Christensen, Trevor Chalobah and Rudiger.

Midfielders: Kovacic, Jorginho, Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta.

Goalkeeper: Edouard Mendy.

Thomas Tuchel’s side must be careful no to concede an early goal. They will be likely be playing with a back three and LIlle will likely attack Chelsea from the flanks. They created many opportunities from the wings at Stamford bridge and Tuchel will need to instruct Azpilicueta and Alonso not to venture deep into the Midfield. This will help to minimize the risk of a counter-attack through the midfield.

Lille’s chances of progressing to the next round will be determined by their ability to capitalize on Chelsea’s error. Their attacking ability will allow them to get past Chelsea’s formidable defense. Chelsea needs at least a draw to qualify and will go to great lengths to prevent Lille from scoring against them. Who will win the UEFA champions league fixture?
