SuperCup: Chelsea vs Villarreal

Chelsea vs Villarreal

Chelsea have lost all 3 recent European Super Cups in 2012, 2013 and 2019. But tonight, coach Thomas Tuchel's teachers and students have many opportunities to break the law before the opponent under Villarreal.

Chelsea vs Villarreal

The big La Liga giants were lying at Chelsea's feet in the journey to winning the Champions League last season. The London team beat Sevilla in the group stage (4-0), easily beat Atletico Madrid in the 1/8 round and defeated Real Madrid in the semi-finals. That doesn't mean Chelsea dare to look down on Villarreal, but at least Tuchel's students are used to dealing with the technical richness of the Spanish representatives.

After winning the Champions League, Chelsea expanded their ambitions by recruiting Romelu Lukaku for 115 million euros. The Belgian striker will be the solution to the Blues' scoring problem. However, in the Super Cup match tonight, Lukaku could not participate. Chelsea's attack still relies on the trio of Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz and Timo Werner, who just fought Tottenham six days ago.

Ziyech just shone with a brace against Tottenham (2-2, friendly). In the previous friendly against Arsenal, Havertz and Mateo Kovacic were the ones who scored in a 2-1 victory. Tuchel has the right to be satisfied with Chelsea's convincing friendly series when his machine still maintains a good game and rhythm, in the context of the absence of many pillars. N'Golo Kante after a hard summer with the French national team has returned to a stable form. Ziyech showed a very high determination to compete for a position in the attack. The former Ajax player is Chelsea's best mutant spearhead in the pre-season series.
