Lille vs Valencia
Date: Wednesday, 23 October 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy (Villeneuve d’Ascq).
Lille never actually stood a chance to progress, and this has been apparent since the roster for the group was announced. They have lost all of their so far in the competition, and despite the home advantage for this game, chances for a favorable outcome look bleak. Moreover, with Valencia desperate to bounce back, after their loss against Ajax the last day at home, we can count on the Spanish cavalry to do their best to script out a win this Wednesday.

Lille vs Valencia Prediction
Galtier’s men are placed fifth in the domestic table and were winless in five of their total nine games. The last day, they were held to a draw, at home, by the 15th placed squad in the table. In addition, the team has just one win from their preceding six games and just four from their last thirteen.
At home, the outfit is winless in the last two appearances and importantly have lost all of their games in the Group Stage of the CL so far.
In fact, they have conceded two or more goals in both their fixtures, totaling to five, and have scored a total of just one in return.
On the other hand, the Mates have the confidence of defeating Chelsea on the road in their opener, and if not for the presence of Ajax in the mix, would have held more leeway in terms of qualification.
They also had just a single loss to contend with from their preceding six attempts and won eight of their prior eleven on the road.
Furthermore, h2h clashes have always been in favor of the Spanish side, with them holding an unbeaten record so far, and a 100% win streak in the last ten years.
In essence, count on the visitors to post the three points on the table this Wednesday.
