- All five of Chelsea’s victories this season have been by more than a single goal margin.
- Rennes have scored just four goals in their last five competitive games.
- Chelsea have kept a clean sheet in each of their last four matches in all competitions.
- Timo Werner has scored four goals in his last five games for Chelsea.
Convincing win on the cards for Chelsea
Chelsea head into matchday three of the Champions League at the top of their group on goal difference, but they will be hoping to move clear of Sevilla when they face a Rennes side yet to win in their maiden Champions League campaign.
The French side picked up a point at home to Krasnodar on matchday one before losing at Sevilla last week, and another dismal evening is likely to be in store for them at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea are unbeaten in six games and, after some early season defensive calamities, they have now kept a clean sheet in four competitive games on the bounce. All five of their victories this season have been by at least a two goal margin as well, and their 4-0 demolition of Krasnodar last week will have them buzzing with confidence.
Rennes, by contrast, have scored just five goals in their last six competitive matches and have looked devoid of ideas in the Champions League so far. With Chelsea’s star-studded attack now firing, a Chelsea -1 handicap win looks good value for monye.
The Blues have scored at least three goals in all of their five wins this season as well, and given their newfound defensive capabilities a 3-0 correct score prediction is appealing. We’re also opting for Timo Werner to get on the scoresheet after the Germany international took his tally to four goals in his last five outings for Chelsea.
