Lille and Salzburg face tonight, starting at 9 p.m., in a final by classification to the knockout stages of the Champions League (follow the game live on AS.com). The austrians may certify the pass today to the last 16 for the first time in their history, while the northern team, current Ligue 1 champions, can reach the last match depending on himself to be the leader of the group if you get all three points today.
The Lille he is aware that today’s game can change the dynamics of a season marked by irregularity. The Doges are currently the 12th of the Ligue 1 and on Friday they lost a golden opportunity to re-launch themselves in the standings, losing a 0-2 in favor in the field of Monaco to end up tying two in the final leg. Win today Salzburg would not only leave them at the gates of the Champions League round of 16, but it would mean a moral injection in the dressing room. Of the team that was champion in May with Galtier few redoubts remain
For his part, Salzburg does not want repeat the stumble of the last day before Wolfsburg. The ones from Jaissle follow leaders in the standings, but with a minimum margin of maneuver to puncture and with a young team that can accuse pressure to be playing the pass to the eighth of the European Cup. The Austrian set will be entrusted to Adeyemi’s talent, closely followed by the greats of Europe, to try to get a positive result at the Pierre-Mauroy, a stadium where Lille has so far failed to win in the Champions League after drawing draws against Wolfsburg and Seville.
