The Vodafone Park, Istanbul will be the battleground today as Liverpool takes on Chelsea in the 44th edition of the UEFA Super Cup.
Winning the trophy will be the icing of the cake for both teams after emerging Champions League and Europa League winners respectively.
The UEFA Super Cup is an annual football match organised by UEFA and contested by the reigning champions of the two main European club competitions, the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League.
Liverpool defeated Tottenham 2-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid to win the Champions league while Chelsea beat Arsenal 4-1 at the Baku Olympic Stadium in Azerbaijan to clinch the Europa.
Liverpool goes into today’s match, fresh from a 4-1 impressive season opener, against new comers Norwich City. Chelsea, on the other hand, go into the match from a disappointing 4-0 defeat to Manchester United.
Some say the Frank Lampard tutored side will need a lot of ginger to push the opening season defeat off the mind.
Liverpool is gunning for their fourth Super Cup trophy after winning in 1977, 2001 and 2005. Chelsea have only one Super Cup trophy in the cabinet won in 1988.
Centre Referee Stephanie Frappart of France who officiated in the finals of the FIFA Women’s World Cup in France will be in charge.
La Liga side Atletico Madrid won the last edition beating Real Madrid 4-2 on penalties
