Chelsea are set to face Rennes in our fourth Champions League group game match, with the Ligue One side hosting the Blues.

Michael Owen has given his prediction for this game, and is backing the Blues to get a victory.

Owen is expecting a professional performance and has backed the Blues to win 1-0 and also keep a clean sheet.

“Rennes initial good start to their campaign has run out of steam,” the ex-Liverpool and Manchester United striker said in his predictions for BetVictor.

“The Frenchmen have lost 5 of their last 6 matches, so will have to find quite the performance if they are to get anything here.

“The task becomes ever more daunting when you look at Chelsea’s excellent form. They have won their last 5 matches and have only conceded one goal in the process.

“It’s no coincidence that this run started with the introduction of goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, as well Frank Lampard settling on his 4-3-3 system. I’m expecting a professional display from Chelsea here and think they will come away with all 3 points as well as another clean sheet.”
