Sevilla are yet to open their account in the Champions League this season, drawing all of their games so far.

However, their league form looks healthy as they are currently third in the La Liga table with 24 points, trailing leaders Real Sociedad only by a point.

Furthermore, they have been undefeated since their draw against Lille in the reverse fixture and are coming off an impressive 2-0 victory over Osasuna in which Lucas Ocampos and Diego Carlos found the nets.

Julen Lopetegui’s men are the clear favourites against the struggling Lille side.

Possible line-up

Bono; Jesus Navas, Jules Kounde, Diego Carlos, Marcos Acuna; Ivan Rakitic, Fernando, Joan Jordan; Erik Lamela, Youssef En-Nesyri, Luca Ocampos


The defending Ligue 1 champions couldn’t have expected such a horrible start to the new season, currently placed at the 12th in the table.

Furthermore, they haven’t managed a victory in their last four games and their Champions League form also doesn’t look good.

Coming on the back of a 2-1 defeat to PSG, the odds are stacked up against Lille when they meet Sevilla on Tuesday.

Possible line-up

Ivo Grbic; Zeki Celik, Jose Fonte, Tiago Djalo, Reinildo; Jonathan Ikone, Benjamin Andre, Renato Sanches, Jonathan Bamba; Jonathan David, Burak Yilmaz


Sevilla 3 – 0 Lille
