The Blues have won the Super Cup after losing in their previous three attempts. Chelsea and Villarreal were level 1-1 after regular time. Hakim Ziyech and Gerard Moreno were the two goal scorers.
In the penalty shootout, Kai Havertz missed his penalty. Aïssa Mandi and Raúl Albion were the two Villarreal players to miss their penalty. Kepa Arrizabalaga was the hero of the day, making the winning save on Albiol.
A Super Cup win means the Blues will be participating in the Club World Cup for the first time in a very long time. Also, Chelsea fans will be in good spirits ahead of Romelu Lukaku’s announcement which is expected in a few hours.
