LOSC Lille 7/20 to win against Gabala FK in tonight’s Europa League qualifier
Competition: Europa League
Market: Lille to win against Gabala FK
Odds: 7/20 @ William Hill
French Ligue 1 side LOSC Lille welcome Azerbaijan outfit Gabala FK to the Allianz Riviera in the first leg of the third round of tonight’s Europa League qualifier. The hosts are big favourites to come out on top against a Gabala side without much experience in European competition.
Lille finished fifth in Ligue 1 last season and suffered just four defeats in 19 home games in 2015/16. The French club conceded just 11 goals for their troubles too, and have a good record in Europe in recent years. They reached the group stages of the Europa League in 2014/15, and the group stages of the Champions League twice in the last five years.
As a result, they’ll fancy their chances at home to a Gabala side who are novices to top European competitions. The visitors made the group stages of the Europa League last season, but failed to win a game and were eliminated with just two points to their name.
Lille are being backed by William Hill to win against Azerbaijan side Gabala tonight, who are 205th in the UEFA rankings, as of July. This evening’s meeting could be a one-sided affair.
