UEFA Super Cup: Chelsea FC vs Atletico Madrid

Posted Image VS Posted Image


Chelsea and Atletico Madrid have earned the right to face each other in the UEFA Super Cup tonight in Monaco by winning the Champions League and Europa League. Chelsea, of course, revived the spirits of their fan base with a late surge last season to win the Champions League as well as the FA Cup. They look to make it 3 trophies in a matter of 4 months. Atletico Madrid earned their place by winning the Europa League for the 2nd time in 3 seasons.

Atletico managed to with this Super Cup Competition in 2010 by beating Internazionale 2-0, but that winning side had almost a completely different squad to this new Atleti of 2012. Gone are Forlan, Kun, Simao, Reyes, De Gea and more. They've been replaced with new players like the prolific goal scorer Falcao.

Chelsea have also won this competition previously, in 1998 after winning the UEFA Cup the previous season. This season's team will look to replace the fight and goals of Drogba who has moved on. Torres will be expected to prove his worth while new signing Hazard will look to make an early impact with his new club.

Which team will lift their 2nd UEFA Super Cup in club history tonight?
