Tip Rennes - Chelsea
Chelsea travel to France for a Tuesday night meeting with Rennes in the UEFA Champions League. The Blues are currently top of Group E after three games, albeit level on points with second-placed Sevilla. Rennes, third in the group, are also tied on points with bottom side Krasnodar, each possessing one point at the halfway mark of this stage of the competition. Matchday four reverses the matchday three fixtures, meaning that the most recent meeting between the two teams playing one another is fresh in the memory. Rennes suffered a heavy defeat on their trip to London last time out, Chelsea strolling to a comfortable 3-0 win. Unbeaten in nine matches in all competitions, Chelsea have won their last five in a row. Frank Lampard's team kept clean sheets in seven of those games, an improved defensive record the result of shrewd summer acquisitions. Rennes know all too well about the transfer activity of Chelsea having sold the Premier League outfit their transformative goalkeeper, Edouard Mendy. The Senegalese stopper is yet to taste defeat in a Chelsea shirt. Chelsea are undefeated in seven of their last eight away matches.
Rennes are in dire form by any measure, let alone comparison with Chelsea. Winless in three, they have failed to record victory in seven of their last eight outings, losing five. Their UCL contests have been unrewarding and they have only managed to score one goal across their three fixtures. They have failed to win three of their last four home fixtures and we see another disappointment on home turf in midweek. Back Chelsea to win.
