Group E table-toppers Chelsea travel to bottom placed Rennes on matchday 4 of the UEFA Champions League Group stages. Alley Sport brings you the Chelsea predicted lineup vs Rennes from this decisive UCL encounter next week.

Rennes vs Chelsea Match Preview

Chelsea sit at the top of the Group E table after going unbeaten in their first three Champions League games. The London side lead Sevilla on goal difference at the summit. Frank Lampard’s team has also enjoyed a steady start to the Premier League season, as they sit 5th in the table, just 3 points from the top of the table.

Rennes have surprised everyone with their Ligue 1 form this season. The French side sit 3rd in the French league as they prepare to take on Bordeaux this weekend ahead of the clash against Chelsea. However, they have not replicated that form in the UEFA Champions League. The Ligue 1 team sits 4th in the table after getting just 1 points from their first three Champions League games. This makes the encounter against Chelsea a must win for them if they want to qualify from the group.

Chelsea ran out comfortable 3-0 winners the last time these two teams in the reverse fixture on November 4th. A brace from Timo Werner and a goal from Tammy Abraham was enough to see the Blues run out victors against Rennes.

Chelsea have played Rennes only once so far in their history, in the 4th November fixture where they ran out 3-0 winners.

Rennes vs Chelsea Match Prediction

We predict that Chelsea will run out winners again, but not as comfortably as they did in the home fixture against Rennes. A predicted 2-0 win for the Blues should see them in pole position to qualify from the group.
