Chelsea vs Rennes

Camavinga and Pulisic out

Frank Lampard’s side will be without Christian Pulisic with the American picking up a hamstring injury during the prematch warm-up at Burnley. Also, Rennes’ in-form 17-year-old French midfielder Eduardo Camavinga misses the trip with a thigh injury. 

Chelsea are overwhelming favorites against a Rennes side, who are on a steep learning curve in the Champions League. It’s difficult to argue with the odds of 1.4 on Frank Lampard’s players picking up all three points. There should be too much class in the home ranks against Ligue 1 visitors using this season as a learning experience.


Rennes will travel in a confident mood: they’ve nothing to lose from this game and are absolute they can improve as the group phase unfolds. Their W5-D3-L2 record in all competitions this season is solid enough and they have the potential to cause problems for Chelsea’s defense in tonight’s Champions League tie.

There’s no point in opposing Chelsea, and some appeal in backing them to win even handicapped by 1 (-1H) considering the difference in strength between these two sides. With this selection, you’ll make a really good profit if Chelsea win by two or more goals.
