Team News

After being sent off in controversial circumstances against Chelsea earlier in the month, Dalbert will play no part for Rennes, but the left-back was not involved in any capacity against Bordeaux either.

Adrien Truffert could therefore be in line for a taxing night against the formidable Chelsea attack, although Hamari Traore is capable of filling in on the left-hand side as well.

Faitout Maouassa is nearing a return but the visit of Chelsea may come too soon for the defender, while Daniele Rugani continues to recover from a thigh problem.
Rennes possible starting lineup:
Gomis; Traore, Aguerd, Da Silva, Truffert; Nzonzi, Camavinga, Bourigeaud; Doku, Guirassy, Terrier
Rennes Champions League form: DLL
Rennes form (all competitions): LLWLLL

Chelsea are in good shape for gameweek four in the Champions League, with Kai Havertz and Thiago Silva potentially making their returns from coronavirus and fatigue respectively.

However, the game will come too soon for the injured Christian Pulisic, who continues to nurse a hamstring problem, but Lampard otherwise has a fully-fit squad at his disposal.

Werner may be given a much-needed rest for this one as Callum Hudson-Odoi looks to impress, and Cesar Azpilicueta is in contention for a start at right-back after Reece James suffered a small injury against Newcastle, although the England international still completed the full 90 minutes.
Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Mendy; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Silva, Chilwell; Kante, Jorginho, Mount; Ziyech, Abraham, Hudson-Odoi
Chelsea Champions League form: DWW
Chelsea form (all competitions): DWWWWW

Prediction: Rennes 0-2 Chelsea
