Thomas Tuchel's side got a favourable draw in the last-16 despite finishing runners-up. The Ligue 1 conquerers currently sit 11th.

The London side is currently not in the richest run of form, scraping past Crystal Palace 1-0 at the weekend. It was expected The Blues would be tightly contesting the likes of Man City and Liverpool this season. However, they have not lived up to expectations.

Lille had only recorded two points after three games in their group. They went on to win three on the bounce by beating Sevilla, Salzburg, and Wolfsburg to claim the top spot in the last 16. The French side secured a home tie in the second leg as a result.

If the Champions of Europe are to retain their title; they will need to start improving quickly to stand a chance.
