Rennes vs Chelsea Preview

Rennes vs Chelsea bet365 betting odds

Frank Lampard's Chelsea head to France to play Rennes in a Group E match of the UEFA Champions' League having already beaten the French side 3-0 in the first leg at Stamford Bridge earlier this month.

The Blues are in fine fettle with consecutive wins from their last 4 outings across all competitions, the last one being a 0-2 win away at Newcastle that catapulted them to the 3rd place on the Premier League points table.

The same cannot be said of their forthcoming European rivals who have trundled from one defeat to another, losing all three of their previous appearances.

In fact, Rennes come into this game on the back of a 0-1 loss to Bordeaux on Friday that has seen them slip out of the Top 4 to the 7th place on the Ligue 1 table.

Rennes vs Chelsea Verdict

The arrival of summer signing Edouard Mendy and Thiago Silva from PSG has solidified the Chelsea defense to an extent that they have conceded just one goal from their last 5 outings. The attack has been on the rampage with Leipzig import and German International Werner getting goals in virtually every game of late.

It's hard to envisage Rennes getting one past Chelsea let alone winning, given the fact that they have gone goalless from their last three outings. The only advantage going for them is that they will be playing at home.

A 1-3 win at 12/1 with Bet365, (subject to alter and correct as of 23/11/2020) for Chelsea looks a most likely result.

Chelsea are at the top of the Group E cluster at 7 points and a win at the Stade de la Route-de-Lorient on Tuesday could almost guarantee a place for them in the Round of 16.
