Stade Rennais is hosting Chelsea at Roazhon Park in round 4 in the UEFA Champions League.
Rennais is not doing well, and their form is terrible at the moment. Rennais has won only 1 of their last 8 games, and they are on a 3-game losing streak. In their Champions League group, Rennais is in the last place with only 1 point, 1 scored goal, and 5 conceded goals in 3 games. In their last Ligue 1 game, Rennais was hosting Bordeaux, and they have had 59% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 78% of the correct passes. The first half was really bad for Rennais, and they have conceded a goal in the 37th minute. In the second half, Rennais has done well, but they weren’t able to go through Bordeaux’s defense. Rennais has lost this match 0-1. Guirassy is the only goalscorer for Rennais in the Champions League so far. Rugani is injured, while Dalbert is suspended for this Champions League game. Rennais is a good team, but a few injuries, a bad game every here and there, and Rennais’ form has quickly dropped, and it cost them a lot in the Ligue 1. There is plenty of time for Rennais to get back closer to the top in Ligue 1, but I don’t see them getting any close to the top 2 in the Champions League.
Chelsea is playing fantastic soccer, and they are on a 5-game winning streak while they haven’t lost any of their last 9 games. During their winning streak, Chelsea has scored 16 goals, while they conceded only 1 goal in their last 7 games. Chelsea is doing a fantastic job in the Champions League as well, and they are at the top of the table with 7 points, 7 scored goals, and still without a conceded goal in 3 games. Werner has 3 goals for Chelsea in the Champions League so far, while Pulisic, Hudson-Odoi, Abraham, and Ziyech have each added 1 goal. Musonda is injured, while Pulisic is practicing, but he will not travel to Rennais for this Champions League game. This past weekend, Chelsea was playing a game against Newcastle on the road, and they were the dominant team with 71% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and high 90% of the correct passes. With 1 scored goal in each half, Chelsea has won this game 0-2. With 18 points, Chelsea is in 3rd place in the EPL standings, and they have been the best offensive team so far, which is not surprising when you look at their roster. Chelsea has finally gotten some consistency on the defensive end, and that will go a long way in their battles in the EPL and in the Champions League.
Chelsea has won the first game in the Champions League against Rennais 3-0 at home, and seeing how bad Rennais’ form is, I see Chelsea getting another win, but this time on the road.
