If the preliminary round of the Champions League had already ended after the first two matchdays, neither Lille nor Valencia CF would have reached the last 16 after the current standings. On Wednesday there will be a duel between the two teams.
Lille vs Valencia Today’s Free Betting Tips
In particular, the French runner desperately needs the first three, because after two defeats and 1: 5 goals “Les Dogues” are early with their backs to the wall. After all, the Taronges already drew a threesome away at Chelsea on matchday one.
Accordingly, Lille against Valencia in the odds of bookmakers also slightly in the outsider role, although for all three starting points in the classic 3-way system correspondingly high odds are tendered.
Nevertheless, speaking for the home win of the French alone, therefore, not too much, because the Doggen won not one of their last 13 international competitive games (six draws, seven defeats). A negative value, which clearly influenced our prediction at Lille against Valencia, especially since the predominantly international inexperienced team of Christophe Galtier had to pay a lot of training in the previous two games.
Accordingly, our bias at Lille vs Valencia to tip 2. But also because the Murciélagos these days are not overly dominant, the bet should be secured with the addition of “Draw No Bet” against the eventuality of the point division.
Lille – Statistics & Current Form
Four national championships and six cup wins have already been booked for the French traditional club Lille OSC. Since the championship 2011 but only a little bit of the Danes was to be seen. In 2017/18, LOSC would have dropped by a hair.
But then Christophe Galtier, led the team in the relegation battle just so rank 17, thus the league was made and promptly won the following year, the runner-up in France. All the more is his anger today that with Nicolas Pépé, Rafael Leao and Thiago Mendes three important cornerstones of his troupe were sold for a total of more than 120 million euros.
Money that was not even remotely reinvested. In addition, came with Renato Sanches and Yusuf Yazici two expensive men who previously played no significant role in their clubs and so far find their way in the north of France hardly. Only striker Victor Osimhen, who scored seven of the 14 goals this season for LOSC in Ligue 1, has been beaten so far.
“You can make everything a handicap – our lack of experience, the strong leagues of our opponents. But we really should not prepare for our game with such negative thoughts. I am convinced that my young team can increase their physique and create scoring chances. That’s the way I prepared it. ” – Christophe Galtier at Daily Mail
Conversely, conceding eleven goals from the first ten league matches, “Les Dogues” currently occupy only seventh place in the table. The advantage over 15th place, meanwhile, is only three points. All the more bitter that even the dress rehearsal went really bad when Lille lost on Saturday at Toulouse with 1: 2.
However, at Lille against Valencia, the odds of the bookmakers also do not beat the home side because the very inexperienced team played a minor role historically in Europe. For 13 competitive games in a row, the Mastgen have been waiting for another competitive victory in UEFA competitions (six draws, seven defeats).
Although coach Christophe Galtier is convinced that there will definitely be one or the other point win in Group H, nevertheless the home record of the northern francs reads downright devastating. Since defeating FC Copenhagen 2-0 in the 2012/13 UEFA Champions League play-offs, LOSC have not won a single European competitive fixture in UEFA competitions at home (four draws, six defeats).
Even more: One of these six defeats from the last ten home matches was just the account of today’s opponent, against the Lille already in December 2012 had to accept a 0-1 home defeat. The facts therefore do not speak for Lille vs Valencia for a tip on odds of 2.85 on the host.
Expected formation of Lille:
➦ Maignan – Bradaric – Gabriel – Fonte – Pied – Soumaré – Xeka – Bamba – Araujo – Iconé – Osimhen

Valencia – Statistics & Current Form
Valencia CF still do not fare well in the 2019/20 season. No wonder, because the decission of Marcelino García after the 2-0 home win over Mallorca is not really digested. A sacking, which, mind you, was carried out against the will of the subsequently striking team of owner Peter Lim.
This already installed the eighth coach in his fifth year as owner of “Los Ches” with Albert Celades and thus extended his staff madness to another inglorious chapter. In the course of these five years, an unbelievable 52 players were finally directed to the Spanish east coast.
It was all the more remarkable that the team caught up quickly after the ejection. If the first game was lost in Barcelona still 2-5, the Murciélagos then won completely surprising in the Champions League 1-0 at Chelsea FC. Since then Valencia CF has lost only the home game against Ajax Amsterdam and remained unbeaten in the other five games since winning in London (two wins, three draws).
“Playing in France against the OSC is going to be difficult, but we’re going to Lille to play and stand up. We want the three points and only then think again of La Liga. Now it’s time to be in the group stage. ” – Carlos Soler at El Desmarque
However, the Taronges did not really get away with it. Although the team, in which with Carlos Soler after a two-month injury break on Saturday in the away game at Atletico Madrid a major performer returned, after a late back at the end still a 1-1 draw. Overall, however, Valencia CF is after nine games completed only on a sobering tenth place in the table.
And yet, the Murciélagos have several assets to throw into the balance, which at Lille vs Valencia tip 2 definitely favor. The bats lost only two of their last 12 away games in France (five wins and five draws) and were able to win away in London on matchday one.
Although this was “only” the fourth victories among the last eleven away games in the premier class (three draws, four defeats), but still showed what enormous potential in the troupe.
A victory in Lille and the Blanquinegros would celebrate a real milestone in the fight for second place behind group head Ajax Amsterdam. But: Despite the comeback of Carlos Soler, the military hospital of “Los Ches” is still well-known. With Rodrigo and Goncalo Guedes two absolute top performers are certainly missing. José Gayà is also highly questionable with thigh problems. One more reason to hedge the bet on the Murciélagos as “Draw No Bet”.
Expected formation of Valencia:
➦ Cilless – Costa – Gabriel – Garay – Wass – Kondogbia – Parejo – Coquelin – Soler – Torres – Gómez
Last matches of Valencia:

Lille vs Valencia Free Betting Tips Explained
Accordingly, at Lille against Valencia, the prediction is clearly in the direction of the guests from Spain, although the Blanquinegros certainly not travel free of problems in the north of France.
As a result, the kickers of Albert Celades sometimes lack the punch in front of the opponent’s goal, while the defensive is currently not nearly as good as in the preseason, which has also led to the fall in tenth place in La Liga. Judging by the anger surrounding the change of coach, the latest results of the Murciélagos must definitely be described as good.
And on the other hand, with “Les Dogues” finally a team that is extremely inexperienced in terms of both international games, but especially from the age ago, the first two group games has already lost and a total of 13 European competitive games to another Victory is waiting.
