Chelsea v Rennes betting tips – back Blues to claim Champions League win

An improved Chelsea defence can help the team to a bloodless Champions League victory against a modest Rennes side who are unlikely to create much.

Chelsea have understandably taken a few weeks to get their ducks in a row after making a raft of new pre-season signings, although the Blues appear to be clicking into gear after managing three consecutive clean sheets and the latest match saw the London side claim a 4-0 win over Krasnodar.

While the Russian side could be the whipping boys of this Champions League group, the result will be a big confidence-booster for a group of players who actually have the potential to win this competition, with Frank Lampard certainly targeting a big campaign as far as the European Cup is concerned.

Are Chelsea Banker Material at 2/5?

Chelsea drew their Champions League opener with Sevilla and it was a decent goalless draw which created that platform for the big win in Russia, with Lampard now looking for his team to cement their last sixteen qualification as early as possible. That would allow them to field an understrength side for their remaining games.

It looks virtually certain that they’ll get the win in this game, although most punters will prefer to include them in a Champions League football accumulator bet rather than bet them as a single although there are alternative ways of getting with the Blues such as backing them on the Asian Handicap.

Can Rennes Put Up Any Sort of Fight?

Rennes opened their Champions League account with a 1-1 draw against Krasnodar before losing 1-0 away to Sevilla. The Ligue 1 side are not a particularly attacking side and managed to finish third in the French league table last season mainly due to keeping things tight and shutting out a succession of opponents.

We are likely to see the visitors set their stall out to defend deep and not allow Chelsea spaces in behind before trying to counter to good effect, although it appears unlikely that we’ll see Rennes show much ambition and it’s possible that they are already eyeing third spot and a stab at the Europa League instead.

What Are the Best Bets for this Match?

As discussed, we’re not sure backing Chelsea is a brilliant way of making a profit and there are other ways to generate a bigger return from your stake. You could start by backing the Blues -1.5 where they need to win by a two-goal margin or bigger, although we think the best value could be Lampard’s side to win without conceding.

We also like Timo Werner to find the net and the German seems to thrive in this competition, while correct score backers could have plenty of joy going for a 3-0 or 4-0 victory in favour of the home side as they look to make major progress in the competition.
