Lille vs Ajax – Prediction (Champions League – 27.11.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Three-nil losers to Ajax earlier this season, and winless in ten home UEFA Champions League (UCL) group games (D4, L6), Lille are now playing only for a place in the UEFA Europa League. To make matters worse, Lille have been kept scoreless in their last 245 minutes of play. In their only prior home game vs Dutch opposition, Lille blew a 2-0 half-time lead to draw 2-2 with PSV back in 2010/11. Overall, they are winless in three prior meetings with Dutch opposition (D1, L2), and any conquest to amend that may come from a set piece, given that Lille have taken 5+ corners in three of their four UCL group games.

Scoring four goals in each of their last five games in all competitions, Ajax boast a record vs French opposition in all games stands at: W13, D8, L10. The win/draw rate (67.74%) from that record should only strengthen here, as Ajax defend an unbeaten run of 13 away games in all European matches (W7, D6). In addition to both of Ajax’s UCL group stage victories this term coming after a won first half, the Dutch champions are the most lethal strike force in Europe this season (3.36 per-league match on average).

Players to watch: Lille’s last UCL goal came courtesy of Victor Osimhen’s matchday four strike in the 25th minute. Two of Quincy Promes’ last three scoring appearances saw him grab the first goal of the game, both times before the 30th minute.

Stat attack: Including qualifiers, three of Lille’s last four UCL goals conceded at home have come beyond the hour mark. Ajax are averaging 3.5 bookings per-match in this UCL group campaign. That said, they also boast the best goal-difference of any side on the continent (+37).
