A great evening at the Pierre-Mauroy stadium. Lille are getting ready to welcome Salzburg on Tuesday during the penultimate day of the Champions League (9pm on RMC Sport 1). A crucial match in the race for the round of 16. Whatever happens, Jocelyn Gourvennec’s players, currently second in group G, will not validate their qualification at the final whistle. But they can take a big step towards the next round, if they win.

They can also secure their European future, by ensuring at least that they are transferred to the Europa League. To better assess their result against the Austrians (at the head of the group), it will be necessary to keep an eye on the match between Seville and Wolfsburg. Knowing that the four teams can still qualify or be eliminated. What to expect for an intense spectacle in the North. With many possible scenariosâ ?? ¦

To open the doors of the next round, Losc must win against Salzburg. It would be the ideal scenario. A success against Karim Adeyemi’s partners would give them the lead of the group with one day remaining. They would then have their fate in hand when it comes time to travel to Wolfsburg on December 8. A victory at the Volkswagen Arena would send them straight to the 8th. A draw or even a loss could even be enough depending on the result and the outcome of the other game between Salzburg and Sevilla.

There it is clearer. If Lille win against Salzburg, they will be sure to finish at least third in their group and be transferred to the Europa League. Enough to extend their European adventure, whatever happens. A draw can also be enough, provided Wolfsburg wins in Seville at the same time.

A setback against Salzburg would seriously complicate the affairs of Losc in the race for the round of 16. By winning over Pierre-Mauroy, the Austrians would validate their qualification. There would then be a place to take, between Lille, Wolfsburg and SÃ © ville. Knowing that the Germans or the Spaniards will inevitably be ahead in the standings at the dawn of the last day. What to mortgage the chances of the Mastiffs, even if all would not be lost so far. To reach the 8th, we would have to get a good result in Wolfsburg (victory or draw by scoring) and hope for a misstep from SÃ © ville to Salzburg, who would already be qualified. In this three-way fight, we should at least secure the place in the Europa League. The risk would be to lose everything in the money time.

The worst-case scenario of the evening would be a defeat against Salzburg combined with a victory for SÃ © ville against Wolfsburg. Lille would then no longer be able to take back the Austrians and would approach the last day with a point behind the Andalusians, who will face an already qualified Salzburg. Le Losc would then no longer have its fate in its hands for qualification in the round of 16.
