Find here all of our live #FOOT

10:56 p.m. : The outcome is cruel for the Mastiffs because the final score does not reflect their domination tonight against the defending champion. Burak Yilmaz had shown the way, but Christian Pulisic and Cesar Azpilicueta answered for Chelsea. Find the report here.

10:54 p.m. : It’s over for Lille! Beaten 1-2 at home by Chelsea, Losc buries with him the last French chances in the Champions League.

10:43 p.m. : Hatem Ben Arfa enters the game for Losc, accompanied by Angel Gomes and Domagoj Bradaric. But no one really believes it anymore. The Mastiffs are missing 3 goals to stay alive in the Champions League and there are only 10 minutes left to play…

10:35 p.m. : GOOOOO for… Chelsea! It’s completely against the run of play but the Blues take the lead (2-1) thanks to a very good cross cut from the knee by Cesar Azpilicueta in the 71st minute.

2 shots on target suffered. 2 goals conceded. It’s that simple.

10:32 p.m. : The bar for Lille! Superb cross from Burak Yilmaz for Xeka’s header. Edouard Mendy is beaten but his post replaces him. Still 1-1 between Losc and Chelsea. The game time is now over.

10:16 p.m. : A thought for our reporter Hortense Leblanc who, in addition to seeing her team heading towards elimination, is not helped by the stadium network

10:12 p.m. : Ouuh it didn’t go far for Lille! Burak Yilmaz’s beautiful helmet shot escapes the frame (50th)… The intentions are the same as at the start of the first period.

10:07 p.m. : Let’s go for the second period! 1-1 between Lille and Chelsea. The Mastiffs must again go up two goals to avoid the exit. Opposite, the Blues have already made two changes with the entries of Mount and Chalobah.

9:59 p.m. : According to the Expected Goals or “xG”, this statistic which gives a value to each shot according to its dangerousness, Lille should lead 1.01 to 0.09 after the first period. Chelsea’s equalizer is pretty cruel!

9:50 p.m. : OH THE COLD SHOWER! Chelsea equalize at 1-1 in added time. Christian Pulisic’s cross shot leaves the Lille goalkeeper haggard on his line. Half-time is whistled just behind…

9:43 p.m. : We are 4 shots to 0 for Lille. The Blues haven’t shown anything so far.

9:42 p.m. : Hello, how many shots for Lille? And Chelsea? Thank you!

9:54 p.m. : There was a moment of hesitation. It got heated in the Chelsea area and the VAR sanctioned a hand from Jorginho. Hope grows!

9:46 p.m. : GOOO for Lille! 1-0 thanks to Burak Yilmaz, scorer from the penalty spot. Losc have so far made up half of their delay against the Blues and scored the first goal in their history in the Champions League! There are seven minutes left to play in this first period.

9:26 p.m. : Burak Yilmaz is very happy to start, it shows. But the Turk is quite messy tonight and has just nipped a counterattack in the bud with a cross directly into touch (20th minute 0-0).

9:25 p.m. : Tonight Chelsea can see it coming and have some nice options on the bench. We must not forget that the London club is the last winner of the Champions League. Eh yes !

9:12 p.m. : First interesting free kick for Lille after a foul on Jonathan David just in front of the box. Burak Yilmaz rushes and shoots over … 10 minutes of play and still 0-0 but Losc shows good intentions.

9:07 p.m. : Let’s go between Lille and Chelsea! There is a place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, good game to all!

8:57 p.m. : Lille and Chelsea are not the only two teams who are playing their place in the quarters tonight. Everything remains to be done between Juventus Turin and Villarreal and the meeting is to be followed minute by minute here.

8:53 p.m. : In England, the Chelsea coach receives the praise of observers, he who agreed to be the ambassador of the Blues in the media. Former English football star Gary Lineker would like to salute his investment.

8:41 p.m. : As for me, I imagine a good 0-0 of the families between a team already qualified and another which will have difficulty creating chances without Renato Sanches.

8:41 p.m. : Among my colleagues in the sports department, who surely mourn my absence, no one is betting on Lille. Thierry predicts a 3-0 for the Blues, Antoine a 3-1, Maël a 1-0. Only our reporter, Hortense, sees Lille avoid defeat with a 1-1 (we will also conceal the name of his favorite team).

8:37 p.m. : In the writing of franceinfo, the opinions diverge next to me. Raphaël sees a 1-1, David a 2-1 for Chelsea and Valentine is leaning towards a 2-1 victory for Losc (we will not mention his region of origin).

8:35 p.m. : 3-1 for Chelsea

8:35 p.m. : 1-2 for Chelsea, without shaking

8:35 p.m. : Good game tonight 1-1

8:28 p.m. : Many of you see Lille doing well tonight? I await your predictions.

8:27 p.m. : Andréa, let’s see…what a bias of opinion…there are also plenty of hyped up supporters

8:25 p.m. : I will be able to do a bit of self-promotion… I don’t know when Chelsea will suffer the backlash of the sanctions against their owner, but I tried to summarize the (complex) situation in which the club currently finds itself in this item.

8:23 p.m. : Could the uncertainties about the future of Chelsea, potentially bankrupt in the short term following the sanctions, not weigh down the Blues and give hope to the Mastiffs?

8:18 p.m. : Tonight, Lille must achieve a feat to advance to the quarter-finals. They must score at least 2 more goals than Chelsea to avoid the exit. Among Lille supporters, we have no illusions.

8:15 p.m. : Thank you for your welcome messages! Feel free to ask me questions before and during the game.

8:11 p.m. : Welcome Andrea, we welcome you with pleasure

8:09 p.m. : The device is in place. Our reporter Hortense Leblanc is at the Pierre-Mauroy stadium and the atmosphere is good, even if Losc are badly embarked after their 2-0 defeat in the first leg.

8:05 p.m. : Good evening everyone, this is my first as a live man, but don’t worry, I’ve received the wise advice of Pierre Godon and Raphaël is watching me.

8:05 p.m. : To accompany your dinner, here is your meal tray for this Wednesday evening:

• Mariupol town hall announces that the Russian army has bombed one of its theaters where a thousand people had taken refuge. No results have yet been released. Follow our live.

• Jean Castex presented a series of measures to mitigate the consequences of the invasion of Ukraine on the French economy, including aid for businesses, fishermen and even farmers. Here is a summary of the announcements.

Gérald Darmanin has arrived in Corsica. The Minister of the Interior has proposed to local elected officials to agree “on autonomy status by the end of the year”. “I am ready to speak with everyone, but my privileged interlocutor is the Executive Council”, he also said. Follow our live.

Will there be a French club in the quarter-finals of the Champions League? After the elimination of PSG, all hopes rest on Lille who face Chelsea at 9 p.m. Advantage to the English who won 2-0 in the first leg.
