Lille vs Grasshoppers by iSpree
Kickoff: 5.8.14 / 20:30 CET
Second leg match in champions league qualification between these two teams. First match ended with a win from Lille 0-2 (away) so they are in a comfortable position today at home.
Lille impressed very well last match against them. The defense looked very solid and didn't make mistakes at all. Last season OSC Lille was one of the best home teams in the league. The won 9, drew 3 and lost only 3 at home. Moreover they conceded only 10 times at home, 3 of those against PSG in their last league match at home (1-3). Despite their good home form, the defensive work is rather good as well and made them one of the best defensive teams in the league last season. Preseason matches ended 0-2 against Haifa away (win) and 1-0 against Zenit away (loss).
Grasshoppers managed to bring only 1 shot on target when they played against Lille in the first leg at home. So i cannot imagine how they should do it better when they are playing away. Furthermore their last match against Sion in the league ended 0-0. They played without any creativity and no idea, exactly the same how they did it against Lille.
Grasshoppers - Thun 2-3 (Yes, they shot 2 goals, but this happened at home and against Thun who aren't as good as Grasshoppers in my opinion)
Zurich - Grasshoppers 1-0
Grasshoppers - Spartak 0-2 (no goals from them in these two matches)
It seems that Grasshoppers aren't the best offensive team as they only managed to score 2 times in their last 5 matches and this against Thun at home. Today they are playing away against Lille and this team isn't stupid. They know that they are in a comfortable situation and don't even have to shot a goal. They know that Grasshoppers must go more offensive and so Lille will be more concentrated on their defense I think. Furthermore the away team looked very uninspired in the first leg and i can't image that they are playing so much better today and this not at home.
One of the best defensive teams last season in Ligue 1 should succeed in keeping a clean sheet at home. Moreover Lille didn't scored in only 3 games last season at home and because of the fact that they scored already two goals against them last match I think that they will score at least one goal (Lille Win to Nil @ 2.10 Marathonbet). But despite the fact that they don't have to win I won't bet on it.
