Chelsea will hope to secure safe passage into the next round as they travel to France with a 2-0 goal cushion against Lille. The Blues despite their off-field troubles have done well to consistently churn out results, with Thomas Tuchel’s side having not lost a game for the last two months.

Lille, who won the Ligue 1 title last season, have stuttered to sixth in the standings, having won only four of their last 10 games, which includes a 5-1 defeat at the hands of PSG. Lille have only made it to the last 16 once previously, way back in 2007, which incidentally was their best-ever finish.

Tuchel said the European champions had to make adjustments in how many staff are travelling and staying in Lille and that such discussions had never taken place before, with an operations team taking care of all their needs.

“We have to deal with it. There are new things to talk about, like how to arrive at games. Things that are normally taken care of,” Tuchel told reporters on the eve of the return leg in France, with Chelsea leading 2-0 from the first game.

“We have a framework to go to Lille and play in Lille. There will be no excuses. It’s already more difficult to arrange things in the best way possible for the FA Cup (quarter-final at Middlesbrough on Saturday).

“As long as we have shirts, as long as we are alive, we will arrive, be competitive and fight hard for our success. We owe it to the people who normally support us … Of course, we’re in the spotlight but this is our responsibility.”
