Two sides that will be looking for a change in fortunes in Group G meet in the Champions League on Tuesday evening, as both Sevilla and Lille will be looking for a first victory in the competition this season.
Champions League Preview
Sevilla and Lille would have certainly been hoping for better in the Champions League this season. Both clubs would have been hoping for a challenge for top spot, but the best that they can both achieve at present is a second-place finish given the advantage that Salzburg has.
Sevilla are currently second in Group G, having picked up three points from the games that they have played. However, the Spanish giants are yet to pick up a victory in the group, as they have drawn all three games that they have played. However, they do have the best defensive record in the group at this stage.
Sevilla picked up yet another draw in their last fixture, as they played out a 0-0 against Lille in France on matchday three. The Spanish visitors dominated the possession in that game, and had six shots on target, but just could find a way past the French champions.
Lille are in a similar position to Sevilla coming into this game on Tuesday, as they are also yet to pick up a victory and are third. The French side still have a chance of reaching the next round of the competition, but defeat on Tuesday could almost end their chances of catching the top two.
Lille have drawn two of the three games that they have played, but unlike Sevilla, they have previously tasted defeat in the group this season. That defeat came in their last away game, as they were beaten 2-1 in Austria by Salzburg.
Sevilla vs Lille Head to Head
Sevilla and Lille have met on four previous occasions. Lille won the first two meetings between the sides, but Sevilla are now unbeaten in their last two against the French side. The Spanish side also have a good record against French sides, as they are unbeaten in five.
Sevilla vs Lille Prediction
This round of games could be crucial for teams fighting for the two automatic spots to the next round. Sevilla could take a huge stride towards the next round of the competition on Tuesday, and we expect them to take the three points against their French opposition.
