Chelsea will return to UEFA Champions League action on Tuesday night when they host LOSC Lille at Stamford Bridge.
Indeed, Thomas Tuchel’s side will be looking to ensure that they can continue in their pursuit to retain the title when they get back to European competition and it seems the Blues are favourites to continue their journey, at least in the first leg.
According to the latest odds that have been made available by Betway Sportsbook, Chelsea are heavy favourites to defeat LOSC Lille on Tuesday night, being priced at 1/3 on to record a win in the first leg.

Given Chelsea’s recent form and their desire to continue to do well, especially as the Premier League title looks out of reach, the UCL is definitely going to be the main prize once again for the current European champions.
Tuchel’s side will likely be in a positive mood when it comes to Cup football, as they have recently managed to add the FIFA Club World Cup to their trophy cabinet after defeating Brazilian side Palmeiras in Qatar.
Kai Havertz scored a late penalty in extra time to secure the title for the Blues, who were beaten in the final the last time they made an appearance in the competition back in 2012 when they were defeated by Brazilian outfit, Corinthians.
Of course, Chelsea will want to go into the game with as much confidence and momentum as possible when they take on the French champions, although that could largely depend on what happens in their match against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Indeed, the English side’s last Premier League game was a little while back because of their involvement in Cup competitions, but they did manage to defeat Tottenham Hotspur in their previous top-flight game.
Chelsea and Crystal Palace met each other in the opening weekend of the 21/22 season and the Stamford Bridge outfit had managed to win rather comfortably when they did meet at the time.
Nonetheless, Patrick Vieria’s side has since improved and some would suggest the team’s league position does not reflect accurately on them. However, the Eagles’ form is rather poor in the Premier League at the moment, which is why Tuchel’s side must feel rather confident that they can go into this game, obtain a positive result and then carry that forward into Tuesday night.
