Michael Owen predicts Salzburg vs Liverpool, Chelsea vs Lille matches

Former Liverpool and Real Madrid striker, Michael Owen, has predicted some of tonight’s UEFA Champions League fixtures.

Liverpool will tackle Red Bull Salzburg in an away Champions League fixture after defeating Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday.

Chelsea will take on Lille at Stamford Bridge following a 3-1 defeat to Everton in the Premier League last weekend.

Speaking with BetVictor, Owen gave his prediction thus;

Chelsea vs Lille, “A win will ensure Chelsea’s place in the last 16 against a Lille side who have won their last three league games 1-0 although they have only picked up a single point in their five previous group games in the competition.

“The Blues won the reverse fixture 2-1 in France on Matchday 2 and Lille are without a win in their last seven away games in European competition. Chelsea continue to struggle to keep clean sheets – just three in 12 home games in all competitions this season – and Lille can play their part in what promises to be a terrific occasion at Stamford Bridge.”
