Liverpool vs Chelsea Prediction & Betting Odds - UEFA Super Cup 2019 Picks
August 13, 2019
Liverpool face Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup at the BJK Vodafone Park in Istanbul, Turkey on Wednesday evening (local time).
This is an annual game that sees the winners of previous season’s UEFA Champions League (in this case, Liverpool FC) play against the defending UEFA Europa League champions (Chelsea FC).
Liverpool have already played for one trophy this season, when losing in a penalty shootout after their recent 1-1 draw against Manchester City in the Community Shield on 4th August.
Chelsea started the Premier League season under new head coach and club legend, Frank Lampard, with a humiliating 4-0 loss at Manchester United on Sunday. With a transfer embargo in place and having lost marquee player Eden Hazard to Real Madrid over the summer, this could potentially be a difficult season for the Blues.
In terms of confidence going into this game, Liverpool unquestionably has the advantage over their London rivals.
