Here's our Chelsea vs Rennes Prediction analysis: Chelsea vs Rennes PredictionAlready placed top of Group E of the Champions League, Chelsea will be hoping to squeeze out a favorable result against Rennes when they clash at Roazhon Park on Wednesday night, to peel away from the chasing pack.
Match status: 2020/21 Champions League - Group Stage
Venue: Stamford Bridge (London)
On paper, this group looks very easy on the eye as you’d think Chelsea and Sevilla would comfortably romp through to qualify to the knockout stages of the competition. However, things may not exactly play out this way.

The likes of Krasnodar and Rennes are proving to be worthy oppositions, and have picked up a point so far, to remain in reckoning. Against this tricky Rennes side, Lampard’s men approaching the game with complacency could be their undoing.

Chelsea vs Rennes Team News

Having failed to reach the latter stages of the previous edition of the Champions League, Chelsea will feel extra-motivated to embark on a lengthier run in the competition this season. Thankfully, they have been drawn in a pretty straightforward group.

Should they fail to advance to the knockout stages, the Blues will have only themselves to blame. They have begun their campaign brilliantly, garnering a superb four points from their opening two games to sit at the summit, level on points with second-placed Sevilla.

A couple more wins on the board, and Chelsea can already start looking forward to the last-16 draws in December. However, there is still a long way to go and it is paramount for the Blues take every game one at a time.

Last time out, they were completely rampant in Russia, taking weak opposition Krasnodar to the cleaners with an emphatic 4-0 victory. In the Premier League, they comfortably put three goals past Burnley to rise to seventh on the log. 

Rennes, on the other hand, shockingly finished third in the French Ligue 1 last season, to book a ticket to Europe’s elite competition. Scuffling to reach this stage, Les Rennais aren’t prepared to give up their fight just like that.

Even against the top sides they are up against, Stephan’s men look like a side on a mission. Though they should have defeated Krasnodar in their opening CL fixture, they were made to share the spoils with the Russian outfit in the end.

Following that frustrating draw, they were sent sinking by a lone Sevilla goal, to keep them pegged on one point. In the domestic league, Rennes defeated Brest 2-1 on the last matchday to move up to third-place on the standings, boasting a fantastic return of 18 points from nine matches.

Chelsea vs Rennes Predictions

Recently striking a purple patch, Chelsea are in the form of their lives, scoring a combined seven goals in their previous two games whilst conceding none. It can be argued, however, that these wins arrived against weak sides.

Rennes are a much stronger side, compared to Burnley and Krasnodar, and will present a different form of challenge to Lampard’s men. Nonetheless, given Chelsea’s strong-will for a result here, count on the hosts to carry the day.
