Bayern Munich champion of the UEFA Super Cup
Yesterday the German team defeated the British Chelsea of Jose Mourinho 5-4, on penalties to win the title played in Prague. The match ended tied at 2 after two overtimes.
The definition is given after all the penalties had been made until the last shot when the German goalkeeper, Manuel Neuer, catched Romelu Lukaku’s shot in a duel that pitted the winner of the Champions League (Bayern) with the European (Chelsea).
With 10 men, Chelsea almost took the victory after Eden Hazard set the score 2-1 early in the first overtime, the Spanish Javi Martinez scored the second goal for the German squad when the second overtime was coming to an end.
The Spanish Fernando Torres gave Chelsea, who won the Europa League, the initial advantage with a solid volley-hooked-shot but the recently awarded Franck Ribery equalized it in the first minute of the second half with a shot that took by surprise Petr Cech.
Bayern won its first Super Cup at the fourth attempt, and is the first trophy for Guardiola since he took the helm of the equipment.
Chelsea finished with ten men when Ramires was sent off (85 minutes) after receiving its second yellow for a strong foul made on Mario Goetze.
Mourinho has never won the Super Cup, while for Guardiola his archrival is their third trophy as he won with Barcelona in 2009 and 2011.
Mourinho former director of Real Madrid, and Guardiola, Barça former trainer, clashed frequently in the classics of Spanish soccer.
