Great UEFA Super Cup showdown this morning Australian time to see the best of Europe go head to head at Windsor Park in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Nice comeback later on from the reigning Europa League champs Villarreal CF in Gerard Moreno at Centre Forward that led to extra time/penalty shootouts, when Chelsea snatched it early in the 1st half through Hakim Ziyech on the wide right.
But it’s the current Champions League winners Chelsea, who stole the show in the end thanks to Kepa Arrizabalaga’s brilliant save that saw Villarreal settle as runner-up.
And it’s Thomas Tuchel’s 2nd silverware as Head Coach since he took charge of the club earlier this year.
Final Score: 1-1 with Chelsea win 6-5 in penalty kicks
Next up the Champions, Europa & Conference League Group Stages are all set to begin on the 14-16th next month.
P.S. Villarreal CF will enter the CL group stages this upcoming season via Europa League winners berth.
