Lille vs Everton by Marlo
Neither side really instills a great deal of confidence in backing them. However, if pressed I have to favour the English side here and the odds from William Hill (industry best price on draw no bet) makes this ripe for investment.
Lille with 2 wins in their last 10 and Everton slightly better with 3wins. Their 3rd win came at the weekend with a solid 3-0 win over Villa.
They are travelling here but should have support of the fans and have welcomed Barkley back to action with him putitng in a good shift versus Villa.
Between these 2 teams, 7 of their combined 20 games has seen draws, they have lost 4 each as well.
The win against West Brom has been their only succes away from home this season. They have only lost properly to Manchester United in a league game where they battled hard to earn a point. Against Swansea in the cup, a win wasn't exactly predicted by many as they had the Merseyside derby approaching and they rotated with Europe and Premier League placing additional burden on the squad.
Lille have faired better at home but a home loss to Guingamp shows that they can suffer defeat and I think if there is to be a winner the edge lies with Everton.
Ensure you take the draw on your side if you take the English side here.
