As Liverpool take on Chelsea in the Super Cup, we shall look at the telecast details.
In an all-English affair once again in the European competition, Liverpool will face Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup in Istanbul on Wednesday. The Reds won the Champions League, while their opponents were successful Europa League triumphants last season.
Jurgen Klopp’s side take part in this competition after overcoming Tottenham Hotspur in the CL final, with goals from Divock Origi and Mohamed Salah. On the other hand, Chelsea breezed past Arsenal 4-1 and Eden Hazard, Pedro, Olivier Giroud, and David Luiz finding the back of the net.
Liverpool kicked off their Premier League season with an emphatic 4-1 victory over Norwich, whereas, Frank Lampard’s side lost 4-0 to Manchester United. It is a contrast of results, but there are several absentees from both the clubs which force the result to be unpredictable.
When these two lastly met in April, the Reds won 2-0 at Anfield, courtesy to goals from Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah. That exhilarating contest saw Eden Hazard rattling the post once and Alisson Becker save a shot from short range to keep the scoreline intact.
Liverpool enter this game as favourites, but Frank Lampard will hope to put his disappointments away and win the first silverware with Chelsea.
