Champions League football is back on the agenda as Chelsea head to France to face Rennes knowing that a victory could secure a spot in the last-16.
The Blues have made a fine start at both home and abroad in 2020-21 and they make the trip to Rennes boasting an unbeaten record in Europe's premier club competition.
Saturday's 2-0 victory over Newcastle in the Premier League briefly moved them to the top of the standings and Frank Lampard appears to have the club moving in the right direction.
A busy summer in the transfer market is paying dividends with the likes of Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Edouard Mendy and Ben Chilwell all performing.
Rennes, meanwhile, have struggled to meet the levels required to compete in the elite European competition after qualifying for the first time in the club's history.
A 3-0 triumph in the reverse fixture at Stamford Bridge on November 11 suggests the Blues should find little resistance in trying to earn all three points on Tuesday.
Rennes vs Chelsea Betting Odds
It's no surprise to see Chelsea rated as heavy 4/5 favourites to pick up all three points at Roazhon Park when considering recent form.
The Blues are unbeaten in nine across all competitions, winning each of their last five outings, and they have made huge improvements on the defensive front.
Chelsea boast a strong record on the road in Europe and have lost just once in their last five outings, with that defeat coming at Bayern Munich last season.
They have only played once away from home in the Champions League this term but made easy work of Krasnodar when earning a 4-0 triumph.
Rennes can be backed at 365/100 to earn a shock win but will welcome the chance to return to home soil after playing their last two games in the competition on the road.
The French outfit have only picked up one point in their opening three engagements, courtesy of a 1-1 draw when they hosted Krasnodar.
Rennes vs Chelsea Team News
Rennes' task of trying to halt Chelsea has been made even tougher due to a lengthy list of injuries and suspensions.
Head coach Julien Stephan is without Brazilian left-back Henrique Dalbert due to suspension after he was sent off in the loss at Stamford Bridge earlier in the month.
Daniele Rugani, Jonas Martin and Faitout Maouassa will also miss out as they remain on the treatment table.
USA international Christian Pulisic has been on the sidelines since sustaining a thigh injury in last month's win at Krasnodar and he remains unavailable for Chelsea.
Kai Havertz missed Saturday's victory over Newcastle due to illness and will be assessed ahead of Tuesday's outing.
Rennes vs Chelsea Predictions
Chelsea have made huge strides forward on the defensive front this season and they look good to pick up a clean sheet victory at Rennes.
Lampard faced criticism for Chelsea's issues at the back in 2019-20 after conceded the most goals of any team to finish in the top-10, despite ending the campaign in fourth.
Thiago Silva and Chilwell have offered more reliability but it was the arrival of goalkeeper Mendy that has provided the biggest boost.
Mendy has conceded just two goals in nine appearances across all competitions, while he is yet to be beaten in three outings in the Champions League.
Chelsea's only engagement on the road in Europe this term ended in a win to nil at Krasnodar and they have kept a clean sheet in each of their last four away fixtures in all competitions.
Summer arrival Werner has looked sharp in Europe this term, netting three goals in as many games.
Two of those strikes came in the win over Rennes and having failed to score in that 2-0 win at Newcastle, will be raring to go.
The 24-year-old already has 24 goals this season and will again be looking to justify the faith in him by the Blues following his £45m move from RB Leipzig.
