Chelsea’s unbeaten run arrives to the northwest of France, where Édouard Mendy’s former team await. Rennes may be in poor form and Chelsea in great form, but nothing’s guaranteed in the next 90 minutes.
Accordingly, Frank Lampard has selected a strong starting lineup. Time to take care of business.
Here we go!
Stade Rennais starting (4-3-3):
Gomis | Truffert, Nyamsi, Da Silva (c), Traoré | Camavinga, Nzonzi, Bourigeaud | Lea Siliki, Guirassy, Doku
Substitutes from: Salin, Grenier, Niang, Maouassa, Gboho, Tait, Del Castillo, Hunou, Assignon, Soppy, Rutter, Omari
Chelsea starting lineup (4-3-3):
Mendy | Chilwell, Thiago Silva, Zouma, Azpilicueta (c) | Kovacic, Jorginho, Mount | Werner, Abraham, Hudson-Odoi
Substitutes from: Arrizabalaga, Caballero, Rüdiger, Alonso, Christensen, Kanté, Tomori, Giroud, Ziyech, James, Havertz, Emerson

Streaming: BT Sport Live (UK); CBS All Access, TUDNxtra (USA); Sony LIV (India); DStv Now (NGA) — if you’re in the US and you don’t want to subscribe to CBS because you’re not over 60 and/or don’t like Star Trek, you can also watch through Fubo TV, for which we have an affiliate link. That said, CBS does offer a free trial, and they will be carrying the Champions League for the next several years, so you might as well get used to their lack of actual television coverage. (I will eventually change this blurb, but not until the main CBS channel or even CBS Sports Network start showing things, and I don’t mean their “Golazo Show” or whatever they’re calling their NFL Red Zone-style nonsense. Thanks, CBS!)
Be excellent to each other, and party on, dudes!
