In Europe more reputable teams playing on the Old Continent. Upcomming match for the European Super Cup, in which two English teams will play – Liverpool and Chelsea. Let’s have a look Liverpool vs Chelsea preview of the European UEFA Super Cup match.

European Super Cup History

To date, English Premier League teams have won seven times in the European Super Cup match. Liverpool have succeeded three times (they also have two defeats), Chelsea has won the trophy once (in three attempts).

The only triumph of Chelsea took place before the time of Roman Abramowicz. In 1998, London defeated Real Madrid 1: 0 and the English team performed such players as Gianfranco Zola, Gustavo Poyet (scorer of the only goal in the match), Roberto Di Matteo or Marcel Desailly.

The Liverpool team won the match for the Super Cup in 1977, 2001 and 2005. During the last victory (against CSKA Moscow) which took place shortly after the incredible Champions League final against Milan. Liverpool’s strength was among others Jamie Carragher, Xabi Alonso or Goal scorers against the Russian team – Djibril Cisse and Luis Garcia.

Team News

Both teams on the ground in Istanbul will not be able to come out in the strongest combination. The Champions League winner Liverpool will have to do without his primary goalkeeper. Alisson Becker in the first round of the Premier League suffered an injury which ruled out his performance in upcomming match.

Adrian will take his place between the posts. Dejan Lovren also did not fly to Istanbul. Officially, the reason for this decision is the illness of the Croatian defender but the media talk a lot about finalizing the transfer of the defender to Roma.

In Chelsea colors we will not see Callum Hudson-Odoia, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Antonio Rüdiger paused for a long time. Willian and N’Golo Kante are also uncertain.

The Frenchman suffered a minor injury in a league match against Manchester United. The decision about his participation in the Wednesday match will probably be made shortly before the first whistle.


On Wednesday evening, Stephanie Frappart will be on the pages of history. French will be the first woman to lead the UEFA men’s final.

Current form of both team

Well, here the matter is extremely simple. Although it is difficult to draw far-reaching conclusions after just one league queue, it is not difficult to see which team will travel to Istanbul in a better mood.

Liverpool to the inauguration of the Premier League smoothly coped with the Benjamin from Norwich 4: 1.

Chelsea while in the debut of Frank Lampard as manager of Chelsea was broken at Old Trafford 0: 4. Therefore, psychological advantage is on the side of Liverpool.

Last Performance of both Team

The last five meetings between these teams are – two Chelsea wins, one Liverpool win and two draws.

Especially matches last season abound not only in emotions but also in beautiful goals. The hits of Daniel Sturridge and Mohamed Salah from league matches and above all Eden Hazard in the Carabao Cup clash fell into the minds of all fans.

A wonderful Belgian action from 00:59. Attention, fans of Chelsea – the material causes crying, provokes reflection and causes fear for the near future.

What Changes on this Summer Transfer Window

How have teams changed since their triumphs in the Champions League and in the Europa League? Virtually not at all. At least when it comes to transfers. Liverpool were added to goalkeeper Adrian and young Dutch defender Sepp van den Berg. Players such as Simon Mignolet and Daniel Sturridge said goodbye to the team.

Chelsea, as it received a transfer ban could not go crazy on the transfer market in the summer. Christian Pulisic, previously purchased and a number of players returning from loans came to Chelsea.

The big problem for Frank Lampard will be replacing the longtime leader of Chelsea. The Belgian (Eden Hazard) fulfilled his big dream and in the summer moved to Santiago Bernabeu for 100 million euros.

Team Stuff/Managers

The coaching experience will definitely be on the side of Jurgen Klopp. For a German, participation in a match with a trophy at stake is practically daily bread.Klopp led his teams in the finals of the Champions League, European League or the German Cup.

Frank Lampard, who has only had one season as manager behind him is extremely pale in this respect. However, he had already scored one match with a high genre weight – he was leading Derby County in the Championship playoffs finals.  The meeting that determined the promotion to the Premier League.
