On Wednesday evening, Stade Rennais will take center stage in Europe for the third day of the Champions League. On the Chelsea lawn (9 p.m.), the team led by Julien Stéphan will continue to learn about competition, as they compete for the first time in their history.
It remains on a success obtained in pain against Brest, in Ligue 1, but has not yet been able to secure a victory in the Champions League. Rennes indeed conceded a draw against Krasnodar (1-1) on the first day before losing to Seville last week (1-0).
Without Camavinga, but with Nzonzi
Julien Stéphan has called a group of 23 players for the trip to England. Eduardo Camavinga (crutch), as had been suggested by his coach before the match in Brest, is not on the trip. “Initially, it is a crutch, a contusion, a blow that he takes, but a blow more violent than he imagined, because he felt a little discomfort but not to the point of asking to go out (against Angers, last Friday), and a crutch bleeds a little, the bruise has spread more. His package is recorded for this match and certainly the next two too“, announced the coach on Friday.
