UEFA Super Cup Prediction
Both the Blues and the Reds boast of reliable and skilful players. Liverpool will walk in the tournament as the favourites. The odds have been placed at 2-0. However, the other international football competitions which are currently taking place could have a toll on the Reds. Mohammed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have had a significant influence in the recent success of the club. The front trio all took part in the World Cup and then again duty calls back at home whereby they are competing at the AFCON and the Copa America. Firmino’s Brazil is already in the semi-finals after defeating Argentina 2-0. Copa America will end earlier, but as for the AFCON, it will run until July 19, 2019.
Egypt and Senegal have already made it to the last 16, and it looks like they might go all the way. Once the AFCON is done, the players will go on a three-week break before the Premier League begins. As the Reds look into winning the Super Cup for the first time since 1990 they could be without Salah and Mane. This is what is going to give Chelsea the upper advantage.
The Blues won the Super Cup in 1998 after beating Real Madrid 1-0 at Monaco. They will begin the Premier League season with one of England’s top scorer Frank Lampard whose replacing Maurizio Sarti as manager. Chelsea will not have one of their key players Eden Hazard who left for Real Madrid. Also, they will not have enough rest time because Chelsea will be playing Manchester United on Sunday that week.
