Lille with a chance to clinch the lead 

A first win in three matches in the UCL by Lille gave them the chance to battle for a knockout stage berth. Just two points from the first half of the group stage matches saw the french reigning champions out of proportion. However, a very impressive win away to Sevilla who are in great shape domestically paved the way for Lille to challenge for the top spot.

Notably, Jocelyn Gourvennec’s team didn’t start their season well. Similar to their UCL matches they had to wait for three matches to register their first win of the season in the Ligue 1. Nevertheless, Les Dogues are undefeated in their last seven home games and it will be crucial to keep that form. A win here can take Lille to the top spot thus, Gourvennec will deploy all his attacking power to challenge for the three points.

 A draw will be a fine outcome for Salzburg

For the first time in their history, Salzburg are topping a UCL group. But in order to maintain their lead, they are facing a very tough test. In fact, this will be the Red Bulls’ second away game in a row. During the last round, Salzburg lost to Wolfsburg 2-1. That was Salzburg’s first defeat this season in all competitions.

Looking at their statistics, we can see how impressive Salzburg’s numbers are. To point out, the Austrian champions scored in all of their away games this season. Moreover, they scored on average 1.6 goals per match and conceded 0.5 goals. With these impressive stats, coach Jaissle will make sure his team at least grabs a point here and miss the chance of a knockout stage qualification. 

Lille vs Salzburg Prediction

After their last win in Seville, Lille will be fired up for this match at home and do their best to grab all three points. While Salzburg will play cautiously and protect a draw which would keep them in top two in worst cases.

As a result, all possibilities are open for this match. To explain, Salzburg could score on a counter and make things difficult for Lille. On the other side, the home team have put on a fine run and are undefeated at Pierre-Mauroy in five games.

According to the bookies, Lille are slight favorites with high odds of 2.47. However, it looks risky to back a home win here as the visitors will put on a stubborn fight. Hence we will go with a double chance outcome combined with total goals to be scored.
