UCL Group E Halfway Report

Group E features Europa League winners Sevilla, tournament debutantes Krasnodar and Rennes, as well as Chelsea.

As It Stands


Chelsea 0-0 Sevilla; Rennes 1-1 Krasnodar

Krasnodar 0-4 Chelsea; Sevilla 1-0 Rennes

Sevilla 3-2 Krasnodar; Chelsea 3-0 Rennes

The story so far

The two group favorites met in the opening round, with Sevilla having the better of things in a 0-0 draw. Chelsea have comfortably won their other two games, while Sevilla have struggled, needing to come from 2 down to beat Krasnodar. Rennes and Krasnodar got their first ever Champions League goals in their opening games, a Guirassy penalty for Rennes opened their account, with Ramirez scoring for Krasnodar.

Who can get through tonight?

Simply but if Chelsea beat Rennes and Sevilla beat Krasnodar tonight both sides will go through. A Chelsea win and Sevilla draw would send Chelsea through, whereas a Sevilla win and a Chelsea draw would send Sevilla through. Krasnodar and Rennes both need at least a draw to stay alive, but realistically only a win would give them a chance of progression.
