Frank Lampard’s team faced criticism for their opening day performance in the UEFA Champions League match which ended in a scoreless draw. However, Chelsea will head into the game on the back of a 3-0 win over Burnley in the Premier League and a 4-0 win against Krasnodar in the European League last week.
Meanwhile, Rennes will hope to record their first win in the group when they travel to Stamford Bridge. The French side are on four-match winless run. However, they did make a comeback in the League 1 with a 2-1 win over Brest on Saturday.
This will be the first encounter between the two sides in a competitive fixture.
