Rijeka vs Lille betting predictions by Pundit Feed

Lille were the victors in the first leg of the playoff in Europa Conference League qualifiers. Can the French side defend the narrow 2-1 home win from the first leg? Here are the top Rijeka vs Lille predictions by Pundit Feed.

Lille to score first

Lille are the huge favourites here, so there is a good chance the French visitors who won the first leg will become a force to reckon with in the second leg as well. Even though Lille play this second leg away from home, the fact that they have a 66.67% chance to score first with odds of 1.50 means they are really good.

Lille lost only one of their last five games across all competitions while Rejeka suffered two defeats in as many games.

Lille to win

Based on the bookie odds, Rijeka have a hefty task in this game. Lille on the other hand, have a win probability of 55.56% with odds of 1.80 while the hosts have a win probability of 23.09% with 4.33 odds. A draw has odds of 3.60, translating to a 27.78% probability. With these stats and the fact that Lille are a far better opponent, we predict another win for the French side in this second leg.

Both teams to score

In as much as Rijeka are the weaker side, they should score at least once. They now have home backing unlike in the first leg in which they scored a goal in a 2-1 defeat. With that, the final Rijeka vs Lille prediction is for both teams to score.

Rijeka vs Lille preview

Lille remain the favourite in another clash with Rijeka. The French side won the reverse leg 2-1 at home, so a trip to Croatia shouldn’t be easy but winnable.

The first leg was Lille’s to take, noting that they had 79% ball possession. So while that can go down on this trip, 7 shots on target against 6 for Rijeka in the first leg means Lille will have an even more difficult game in this second leg.

Being able to get 6 shots in target in the first leg means Rijeka could have even more in front of home fans, so we expect another goal-goal outcome on the last day of August 2023.
