Cheslea player at UEFA Super Cup photo

The first major European trophy of the 2021/2022 season will be decided on Wednesday the 11th of August as Chelsea battles Villarreal in the UEFA Super Cup at Windsor Park Belfast.

Chelsea comes after pre-season matches the most recent of which was against Tottenham Hotspur on the 4th of August.

This will be the fifth show in the UEFA Super Cup for Chelsea but they have won the trophy only once. The victory came back in 1998 against Real Madrid and their most fresh debut in the competition was against Liverpool in 2019.

The match against Liverpool ended 2-2 and after extra time, the game went to penalties and it was Liverpool who came out on top.

This is a big season for Thomas Tuchel as Chelsea were not anticipated to win the Champions League last season but having done so, the pressure will be on to win the Premier League.

Victory in this game will not be key to that success but will be a good start to the season.

Villarreal will be making their first appearance in the UEFA Super Cup following the trophy at Europa League for the first time in their history last season.

The Spanish club defeated Manchester United in the final, with the game going to penalties following a 1-1 draw.

The match will be aired on GOTv, beIN Sports and DSTV in Africa.
