Lille vs Sevilla Prediction: Champions League Match on 20.10.2021
Wins have been hard to come by in Group G of the Champions League, as Salzburg are the only side that have picked up maximum points from a fixture to this point. Lille and Sevilla will be looking to get off the mark with a win in France on Wednesday.
Champions League Preview
Sevilla would have been hoping for slightly better in the Champions League this season, as they were drawn in a very winnable group. Meanwhile, reigning French champions, Lille, have picked up just a point from the two games that they have played to this point.
Sevilla are still very much in the hunt for the next round of the competition, as they are just two points behind RB Salzburg after two rounds of fixtures. The Spanish giants have picked up two draws from both games that they have played to this point, scoring and conceding on two occasions.
Both goals that they have scored so far have come from the penalty spot, with the most recent of those being scored by Ivan Rakitic in a 1-1 draw against Wolfsburg. They will need to be more threatening from open play in this fixture.
Lille have struggled on their return to the Champions League, failing to win in either of their two games to this point. They were handed a first defeat in Group G in their last match, as they were beaten by RB Salzburg.
Lille will need to respond in this fixture, as they are in danger of being cut adrift at the bottom of the standings. Back to back games against Sevilla in the Champions League will likely go a long way in deciding whether they will be playing in the competition after Christmas.
Lille vs Sevilla Head to Head
Lille and Sevilla last clashed in UEFA competition back in the 2005-06 season, with the Spanish giants winning over two legs in the round of 16 stage before winning the competition. However, the Spanish side have lost on both away trips to Lille in UEFA competitions.
Lille vs Sevilla Prediction
Sevilla have a poor record away from home against Lille, but come into this fixture without defeat in their last eight away games. Lille have struggled in the Champions League so far this season, and we can see a second straight defeat being inflicted on them by the Spanish giants on Wednesday evening.
