Chelsea 7/10 to beat Rennes in Tuesday’s Champions League matchup
Competition: Champions League
Market: Chelsea win
Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport
With a chance to extend on what has been a real purple patch, Chelsea will make the trip out to France when they face off against a struggling Rennes on Tuesday evening.
Starting with the hosts, only continuing on what has been a hugely worrying run of form both domestically and in Europe, Rennes are a side who are desperately seeking any kind of bounce. Freefalling down the Ligue 1 standings and now sat firmly outside the European positions in France’s top-tier, Rennes were hit with a 1-0 defeat against Bordeaux last time out and they now find themselves in the midst of a three-match losing run across all formats. More worrying, along with failing to record a single strike in any of their previous three defeats, it should also be noted that Tuesday’s hosts have lost five of their last six matchups and have just a single win to their name since September 26th. Winning just one of their last five competitive contests on home soil, Rennes should face another tough test.
As for the visitors, despite their inconsistent start to the 2020/2021 campaign, Chelsea do find themselves enjoying a real purple patch of late. Along with managing to collect seven points from their three Champions League matchups so far this season and appearing to cruise their way to the knockout stage, the Blues have also climbed up to second in the Premier League table. Collecting a 3-0 victory when they faced off against Rennes on home soil, Chelsea have won each of their last five straight contests across all formats and are unbeaten in any of their last nine appearances. With a growing reputation for their recent showings in the final third, we’re backing an away victory for Tuesday’s guests on foreign soil.
