London, Nov 4 (EFE) – Chelsea crushed 3-0 without much trouble, with a double by Timo Werner and a target by Tammy Abraham, a Rennes who played more than half a game behind due to the expulsion of defender Dalbert.
Those of Frank Lampard left the door to zero (for the sixth time in seven games of Edouard Mendy) and thrashed in a placid encounter that was already defined at the end of the first 45 minutes.
Before the minute reached 10, Henrique Dalbert, the unfortunate of the London night, took Werner ahead in the area. The referee, Felix Zwayer, saw the maximum penalty and the German striker scored from the penalty spot.
The goal gave tranquility to a Chelsea that was dedicated to temporizing, while Rennes did not want to lose face to the match.
Until Dalbert missed again. One hand, one of which is only whistled with the VAR, ended the match. Zwayer did not see it, but the technology did, which sent the German to the monitor and whistle the penalty, expelling the side on the way for a double yellow.
Werner placed the ball at an angle, making it impossible for the Rennes goalkeeper to stop at the penalty spot and the match entered a point where Chelsea had only to wait for more goals to arrive and later the final whistle.
The French had run out of options and Chelsea had the victory in their pocket so they timed it, having a lot of possession and avoiding surprises behind.
When he could do damage, he did it and had no mercy on Rennes, emotionally touched after the expulsion.
An intermission by a band of Reece James, who put a cross at the near post for Abraham to splice made it 3-0 on the scoreboard and practically the end of the match, although there were 40 minutes ahead.
The ‘Blues’ still do not know what it is to lose this year in the ‘Champions’ and they add seven points in three days, which helps them to lead Group E, tied on points with Sevilla and with a six advantage over Krasnodar and Rennes .
