Rennes started this season in Ligue 1 in an extremely impressive way, with expectations to become a new "guys" of the tournament, but now everything is going on very difficult with the team Coach Julien Stephan.
Chelsea lowered Rennes 3-0 in the first leg
The sound that the string of 8 unbeaten in the early season of Rennes created was officially drifting into the past, when this team recently suffered the fifth defeat in the last 6 games in every Bordeaux arena. Further, in the last 8 games, Rennes only had 1 victory over the Brest "Little" at home.
This is clearly a less convincing momentum before Rennes returns with his own dangerous situation at the Champions League group in this season with a table, with only 1 point after 3 matches. Rennes's most practical goal at the present time, in a table with Sevilla and Chelsea, perhaps the 3rd position competition to attend the Europa League with Krasnodar, the team with points and only over them about the secondary index.
Meanwhile, Chelsea's circumstances seem to be fully opposed when they are almost impossible to hold on winning. "The Blues" will head to the 6th consecutive victory in every arena when it comes to the visitors before Rennes, after crossing Newcastle United in the Premier League last weekend.
Everything Chelsea in the Champions League is very positive, when they are occupying their heads with the point with Sevilla (more about the difference). Frank Lampard's team, those who have not lost their loses and scored 7 goals, will officially go on to overcome Rennes while Krasnodar is also white in front of Sevilla.
Chelsea's superiority before Rennes was shown in the first leg in November, when "The Blues" was 3-0 victory at home. With the current opposite situation, it's hard to expect a surprise from Rennes.
