Chelsea vs. Rennes Match Analysis and Prediction

After a successful win in the Premier League last week, Chelsea switches their focus to the Champions League this weekend. The match schedules for Wednesday at Stamford Bridge. The match kickoffs at 8:55 pm.

The French side travels to London with hopes of getting their first win in the Champions League after two unsuccessful attempts. Chelsea will be looking to strengthen their spot in Group E of the competition.

Frank Lampard came under heavy criticism last time out when the side played host to Sevilla. However, he might be content that the side managed to pick a point against their group rivals. The draw pushed elevated the side to put up a show against side FC Krasnodar. The Blues managed a 4-0 win over their opponents.

Chelsea has much work to do to progress to the last 16 in the competition. Their last two results put a lot of pressure on their opponents. Eduoard Mendy will attract a lot of attention following his big-money move from Rennes to this transfer window.

Eduoard Mendy currently has five clean sheets for the Blues breaking Peter Cech’s record of four clean sheets since his transfer. The side is currently on a nine-game winning streak in the long run.

Rennes head into the match from the back of four winless runs. The mood of the club is somehow raised following their encounter against Brest.
