Lille have zero points in Group F. They're travelling to the Allianz Area. You do the math on this one.
One-sided doesn't begin to describe this one. Lille have zero points in Group F. They don't win games. They don't draw games. They're going up against 2012 runners up Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena, one of the most difficult fixtures in European football.
So, why preview this game? I don't know. If the world makes any sense at all, Bayern are set to stage a repeat of the Franco-Prussian war with a crushing, mercifully quick victory on Wednesday. Although they only won a narrow victory in France, the hosts have been more or less unstoppable in Munich this year. Even including the Bayer Leverkusen shock, they've won five of six games at the Allianz, outscoring their opposition 21-5. Lille, meanwhile, are... bad.
It's a pretty simple analysis, really.
