Chelsea welcome French outfit Rennes to Stamford Bridge for a Champions League clash live on BT Sport this week.

Chelsea Champions League

Chelsea play host to French high-flyers Rennes in the third round of Champions League fixtures this week.


After yet another encouraging performance at the weekend, Frank Lampard’s side are beginning to look like the real deal, with his raft of new signings starting to find their feet in London.

With Group E finely balanced, the Blues will be hoping to get the best of the French visitors in a bid to eke out some daylight between themselves and the rest of the pack.

The French side somehow find themselves at the bottom of Group E and will be hoping to resurrect their campaign as soon as possible.

Coming off the back of some fine domestic form, Rennes will be quietly confident of blowing Group E wide open with a bit of a smash and grab job at Stamford Bridge .

Chelsea v Rennes team news

Chelsea: The injury bad-luck continued apace for Christian Pulisic who will undergo a scan on his hamstring after pulling up ahead of Chelsea’s clash with Burnley.

After a brilliant weekend, Hakim Ziyech is expected to start again while goalkeeper Edouard Mendy faces the prospect of a hasty reunion with his former club.

Eduardo Camavinga, Faitout Maouassa and Daniele Rugani remain unavailable for the French outfit.

Our prediction: Chelsea v Rennes

Lampard’s Chelsea machine is just beginning to purr and they will be more than confident of securing three points on their own patch.

Rennes could make it a bit of a sticky wicket for their hosts but an away-day win would certainly be considered an upset.

While the Blues might not have it all their own way, they should have more than enough to get over the line in the end.

Our prediction: Chelsea 2 – 0 Rennes
