Chelsea could be placed in a ‘group of death’ when the Champions League draw is made tomorrow.
Frank Lampard’s side are with Man Utd and Man City in Pot 2 while Premier League champions Liverpool fill out the English contingent in the top group.
And it is from Pot 1 where the Blues will be looking to avoid one team in particular.
Surely no one would fancy taking on the reigning champs in their current rampant form.
Further down in Pot 3, Inter Milan’s team of stars under Antonio Conte – up against his old club – could prove difficult.
And below them again in the bottom pot lie current Ligue 1 leaders Rennes.
The French team’s ex-goalkeeper Edouard Mendy recently joined Lampard’s side.
Saying that though, Rennes have started off unbeaten this season with four wins from five games and 12 goals scored already.
The Champions League does not start until October 20 as a result of the pandemic and delayed season starts across Europe.
