'A chance to nail down qualification': Nevin previews Rennes game; names Chelsea's 2 most dangerous players

"[It is] a real chance to just about nail down qualification for the knockout stages of the Champions League," Nevin wrote on Chelsea's official site.

"What an opportunity to approach the final two games in the group with a chance to rest players and give others a bit of much-needed on-field time.

"It will not be easy obviously, that 3-0 win at home didn’t look anything like that easy when Rennes had a full complement of 11 men on the pitch. Nothing can be taken for granted in this game.

"Rennes will have been watching closely when the Blues made the trip up to Newcastle at the weekend, and they will not have liked what they saw.

"Tammy Abraham and Timo Werner broke their [Rennes'] hearts in our first tie three weeks back, and the two frontmen were looking, if anything, even more dangerous against Steve Bruce’s side."

With Rennes and Krasnodar still stuck on 1 point each, a win tonight could almost certainly guarantee progression into the next rounds of the Champions League.

Timo and Tammy will be looking to ensure just that, with the strike pair looking more and more threatening with every passing game.
