Lille OSC is hosting Milan at Stade Pierre Mauroy in round 4 in the UEFA Europa League.
Lille has been impressive in their last Europa League game against Milan when they beat them 0-3 on the road, but right after that Lille has lost to Brest on the road in Ligue 1. In their last game, Lille was hosting Lorient this past weekend, and they were fantastic with 63% of ball possession, 13 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, 6 big chances created, and a solid 87% of the correct passes. Lille has won this match 4-0. With the win against Milan, Lille has jumped to first place in their Europa League game, and they now have 7 points, 9 scored goals, and 3 conceded goals. Yazici is the leading goalscorer for Lille in the Europa League with 6 goals, while Ikone added 2 goals. Sanches, Celik, and Yilmaz are all injured, and they will not be playing in this game. Lille is doing a fantastic job in the French Ligue 1 as well, and they are in second place with 22 points, and they are one of the best defensive teams in the league, while also being the second-best attacking team. I think Lille will advance to the next stage, the only question is from which spot.
Milan’s only loss this season was against Lille in the Europa League, and that loss was because of 3 terrible mistakes from their defense. After that, Milan has played 2 games, and they have one win and one draw, alongside 5 scored goals, and 3 conceded goals. In Serie A, Milan is still undefeated, and they are in first place with 20 points, 19 scored goals, and only 8 conceded goals so far. The biggest problem for Milan at the moment is the injury of Zlatan Ibrahimovic who will miss the next few games due to an injury. Leao is also injured, and he will miss this game as well. Diaz is the leading goalscorer for Milan in the Europa League with 2 goals, while Hauge, Krunic, Dalot, and Leao added 1 goal each. Milan was playing against Napoli on the road in their last Serie A game, and they have had only 38% of ball possession in that game, 7 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and a solid 81% of the correct passes. With 1 scored goal in the first half and 2 more in the second half, Milan has won this game 1-3. At the moment, Milan is in second place in their group, and I’m confident they will advance to the next stage, but I’m sure they would love to get there from the top spot, which means Milan has to win this game.
Both teams are in great form, but Milan has never beaten Lille, at home or on the road. Both teams could use a win, but Milan needs it more, and I will pick Milan on the road for a nice plus money.
