Lille vs Olimpija Ljubljana match preview

LOSC Lille are back in UEFA competition, but are they one of the favourites to win this season’s Europa Conference League?

Having ousted Rijeka in the play-offs, les Dogues are making their 13th appearance in a UEFA group stage although, to date, they’ve never gone beyond the round of 16, falling at that hurdle on five occasions.

Paulo Fonseca’s side are certainly capable of changing that, so will Lille make a winning start in this unusual Wednesday afternoon fixture at Villeneuve-d’Ascq?

Olimpija Ljubljana, in contrast, are making their group phase debut, after enjoying qualification victories over Valmiera and then Ludogorets Razgrad, the latter a big upset.

João Henriques’ side were subsequently defeated by both Galatasaray and Qarabağ, thereby dropping down into this competition, but, in many respects, the hard work had already been done.

Given their lack of expirence, the Dragons come into this one as rank-outsiders, probably feeling they’re far more likely to pick up points against Slovan Bratislava and KÍ in fixtures to come.
