Chelsea face a tough Champions League test away to Sevilla in a game that will likely settle which of the two teams win Group E. Both teams have proven their worth already to brush off Krasnodar and Rennes, booking a place among the last 16, while nullifying each other in a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge. The Europa League champions will hope to send a message with a win here to show they have completed their graduation to the top tier and can be treated as a legitimate threat to win the competition outright.
Rennes substitute Adrien Hunou scored an equalizer and then missed a late chance as Rennes drew at struggling Strasbourg 1-1 in the French league on Friday. Rennes was an early frontrunner in the league but has won only once in the past 11 games overall, dropping to sixth place. Next-to-last Strasbourg took the lead midway through the first half when midfielder Adrien Thomasson turned in right back Kenny Lala's cross.
