Aston Villa host French side Lille at Villa Park in the first leg of their Europa Conference League quarter-final on Thursday evening.

Unai Emery’s side face the team that are fourth in Ligue 1 while hoping to build on what has so far been a hugely successful season.

Villa currently sit in fifth in the Premier League, 11 points ahead of Manchester United in sixth. Changes to next season’s Champions League format mean that the Villans are on course to qualify for the 2024/25 edition of the competition (depending on other European results).

And the home side head into the game in mixed form, having won just two of their last five games – though one was a statement 4-0 win against Ajax in the second leg of their round of 16 tie.

Meanwhile Lille, who sit just three points off Ligue 1’s qualification places for next season’s Champions League, enter the game off the back off three wins and two draws in their last five games.

The winners of this tie will face the winning side from the tie between Greek side Olympiacos and Turkish giants Fenerbahce.

The two sides are fairly evenly matched according to their respective league positions, and even though Lille are on slightly better form, the Villans should have too much for them if they play to their strengths. Aston Villa 2-1 Lille.
