The UEFA Super Cup pitches the winners of last season’s Champions League, Liverpool, against the Europa League champions, Chelsea.
The one-off game takes place at the BJK Vodafone Park in Istanbul, Turkey on Wednesday evening (local time).
This will already be the second trophy Liverpool have played for this season, having been beaten in a penalty shootout after a 1-1 draw against Manchester City in the Community Shield just a couple of weeks back.
For Chelsea and their new head coach, Frank Lampard, this is a game in which they will be desperate to improve upon Sunday’s opening Premier League fixture of the season, when they went down to an embarrassing 4-0 loss at Manchester United.
With a new man at the helm in Lampard, a transfer embargo in place and the departure of their marquee star Eden Hazard (now at Real Madrid) over the summer, this could be a difficult few months for Chelsea whilst they adjust.
