Lille Champions League Betting
Lille caused something of a surprise in 2011 by winning the French Ligue One and they followed that up by finishing third last season to qualify for this season's Champions League. They will be keen to cause some more surprises this season by competing well on their debut season in the Champions League, although domestically they face a tough challenge to retain their title following the big spending of Paris St Germain and the re-emergence of Lyon.

Current Form and Key Players
Lille arrive for their second season in the Champions League after causing something of a surprise in their home league during the past few years. Manager Rudi Garcia has built a side based around a solid French spine, mixed with the flair of several quality foreign players.
Benoit Pedretti and Ronny Rodelin are a couple of the better known French players in their side, while the Brazilian Tulio de Melo, who joined from Palermo, adds flair to the attack. The Angolan Rio Mavuba captains the side, although Eden Hazard has left to join Chelsea.
