Lille head in to their new season with only the 4 games behind them. Undefeated with 2 wins and 2 draws under their belt and still to concede. Lille will fancy their chances in this tie and will seek to exploit Qabala’s weaknesses during the 1st leg. Qabala’s league season has finished but they are still in the running for a place in Europe via these qualifiers. Their league was complete in May. They finished 3rd which meant their summer break would be cut short with the small sacrifice of European football to play.

Qabala have won 6 and lost 2 of their last 8 competitive matches. However, they have been a mixed bag away from home. In their last 9 away games, they have won 4, drawn 2 and lost 3. In their Europa League campaign, they have played 2 away, winning 1 and losing 1.

Lille have added a host of players to their squad this summer. 5 new players have signed contracts with the club. The same amount of playing staff have vacated. The most recognisable name of the bunch is Portugese starlet, Rony. He has moved across the country to Monaco on a long term deal. Qabala have the same squad they finished the league with minus 2 players. Pablo Pashaev has transferred to Stal Kamjankse. While Arif Dashdemirov has signed for Qarabag FK.

Moroccan born Sofiane Boufal was Lille’s top scorer in the league last season. He will miss this fixture due to injury. However, Lille pose a threat from more than just Boufal, so still expect goals. He scored 11 goals in 29 games and is expected to start in this fixture. 33 year old midfielder, Olexiy Gai, for Qabala has been the most prolific of the side all season. He has scored 10 goals in 35 games.

Lille have only managed to score once on 2 occassions so far in July without Sofiane Boufal. However, we still believe they have enough quality to score twice in this match. Qabala have scored in 8 of 9 away games and conceded in 6 of those, to what we think, is lesser opposition than Lille.

We believe our prediction of Lille to win 2-1 at 17/2 with bet365 is great value. With the given stats in mind, our other betting tip and prediction for this match preview is Over 2.5 Match Goals at 23/20 with be365.

No meetings as yet between these two sides.
