    • Chelsea
    • - A small dose of revenge for Bayern, who lost the Champions League on penalties. Lukaku is distraught. And that is that. Entertaining for the neutral it has to be said.
    • - BAYERN WIN THE SUPER CUP! PENS: Bayern 5-4 Chelsea - Lukaku for Chelsea, and it's sudden death now... AND NEUER SAVES IT! Poor Romelu, didn't look comfortable.
    • - PENS: Bayern 5-4 Chelsea - Shaqiri for Bayern and Cech almost saves it but not quite!
    • - PENS: Bayern 4-4 Chelsea - Ashley Cole for Chelsea and he hits it in off the post! Oooh that was close.
    • - PENS: Bayern 4-3 Chelsea - European player of the year Ribery now... cool as you like, bottom right.
    • - PENS: Bayern 3-3 Chelsea - Lampard for England, no I mean Chelsea, and he betters Neuer by sending the Germany keeper the wrong way.
    • - PENS: Bayern 3-2 Chelsea - Lahm for Bayern, low into the bottom left with Cech almost reaching it!
    • - PENS: Bayern 2-2 Chelsea - Oscar now for Chelsea. He's had a fine game, but missed two good chances... staggered run up but into the top left corner.
    • - PENS: Bayern 2-1 Chelsea - Kroos for Bayern now... coolly rolls it right, Cech goes left.
    • - PENS: Bayern 1-1 Chelsea - Luiz now and a ferocious drive to the top right. Boom!
    • - PENS: Bayern 1-0 Chelsea - Alaba finishes easily with Cech going the wrong way.
    • 120+1 CORRECTION: It was Martinez, not Mandzukic with the finish after a high ball dropped kindly for him in the box. Heartbreak for Chelsea, and we have penalties!!
    • 120+1 Lahm swings it in, Luiz heads clear. Boateng has it back. Goetze swings it in, Ivanovic heads away... AND BAYERN HAVE SCORED! MANDZUKIC WITH THE LAST KICK OF THE GAME!!
    • 120+1 Only one added minute and we are in it!
    • 120' Ivanovic is now booked for time wasting.
    • 120' Ooooh that should have been in! A free-header for Mandzukic, who heads into the ground from eight yards, but it bounces over.
    • 119 Boateng with a ferocious effort that flies a yard over. Time running out for Bayern...
    • 119' Ribery with the free-kick AND AN INCREDIBLE SAVE FROM CECH FLYING TO THE TOP LEFT! Wow, he's having a blinder!
    • 118' Cole is booked for some wall nonsense. Maybe Mikel. Who knows.
    • 117' Ribery to take this free-kick then - a gransdtand finish?
    • 116' Short corner and Alaba is fouled a few yards from the box. The bus is parked.
    • 115' Mandzukic gives what-for to the linesman after going down in the box. Now Kroos shoots, deflected, corner. Can Chelsea hold on?
    • 114' Cech with another good save, this time from Kroos. Corner, cleared, and Neuer is up for it, heading the ball wide to Shaqiri to prevent a counter attack! Sweeper keeper!
    • 112' CHELSEA SUB: Hazard comes off to a standing ovation and it's John Terry. At least he'll have the right to prance about with the cup later!
    • 111' BAYERN MISS A SITTER! Or was that a block? I think Cahill got a touch! Yes, amazing tackle as Shaqiri was set to tap in a Mandzukic header!!
    • 110' Nice curling cross from Shaqiri but Chelsea field it well.
    • 109' ANOTHER GREAT SAVE BY CECH! From Martinez this time! Cech just flew across to palm that out!
    • 108' GREAT SAVE BY CECH FROM MANDZUKIC! The big man just flew across goal to claw it away!
    • 107' Mandzukic fouls Hazard and Cech takes his sweet time over the free-kick.
    • 106' Straight back underway for the second half of extra time.
    • - The fans are chanting "Jose Mourinho" and he is pointing to Hazard.
    • 105' Half-time in extra time, Chelsea lead 2-1. Chelsea have well and truly parked the bus. Can they hang on? Tweet @Reda_Eurosport.

    • 104' Incessant Bayern pressure now but Chelsea are throwing everyone behind and at the ball! Corner now as Cahill heads one behind....
    • 103' Martinez tries a spectacular volley from range, which is blocked for a corner. Cahill doing the business there.
    • 102' Shaqiri is causing problems with his dribbling but Chelsea have bodies back. Hands to the pump now!
    • 101' Ribery hits the deck but Eriksson ignores the appeals. Hazard releases Lukaku, who races at the defence and wins a throw. Classic Lukaku.
    • 100' Manzdukic with a header that drops for Shaqiri, who lets it drop and in doing so Lampard blocks the shot. Wide for a corner.
    • 99' Alaba sends one well wide. Lukaku is booked for a late challenge earlier.
    • 98' Alaba with a low cross that Cech will munch on all night.
    • 97' CHELSEA SUB: The popular Lukaku comes on for Torres. Nice option from the bench!
    • 96' Another look at the goal and it gets worse for Neuer - a howler. So quick you could barely see it in real time but straight at him!
    • 95' BAYERN SUB: Shaqiri on for Robben. Tricky Swiss-Albanian winger.
    • 94' A look at the replay shows Neuer - who I was earlier calling the best in the world - probably should have stopped that. What do you think? Tweet me @Reda_Eurosport.

    • 93' Oscar on the run now, Chelsea - despite being down to 10 - have men over but his pass is intercepted before Hazard gets on to it.
    • 92' GOAL CHELSEA! EDEN HAZARD WITH A SCREAMER! Pure inspiration from the Belgian, a Ribery-esque strike after cutting in from the left!
    • 91' The first half of extra time gets underway.
    • 90+3 Extra time it is! 1-1 after normal time, Torres and Ribery, but Chelsea down to 10 men.
    • 90+2 Neuer rushes out as Chelsea's long ball leaves Dante floundering.
    • 90+1 Luiz hits it; Luiz hits wall.
    • 90+1 Both Lampard and Luiz are over this. Both can hit a long-range free-kick, but Neuer is arguably the best in the business... The ref speaks to the wall....
    • 90' Dante leaves Torres in a heap on the edge of the box and Chelsea have probably their last chance to win this in normal time.
    • 89' Torres is having his name taken, not sure what for - time wasting or backchat?
    • 88' Ribery drills a low effort wide. Bayern surely to win this in ET.
    • 87' CHELSEA SUB: Mikel on for Schurrle.
    • 86' RAMIRES SEES RED! Second yellow for a nasty tackle on Goetze, and he's walking before it's shown. Should have been a straight red.
    • 85' Lampard will take this as it's pretty much from wide... GREAT BALL LAMPARD AND LUIZ SURELY but an amazing save by Neuer! Low, one-handed, flying in!
    • 84' Fine throw by Cech to release Oscar, who shows neat trickery and Boateng fouls him to earn a booking.
    • 83' A corner to Bayern as a shot is blocked wide. A short corner as Ribery and Robben move to the right. Again it's sent to the edge of the box but Kroos mis-kicks and Chelsea have it back with Cech.
    • 82' For Web users only - Bayern goalscorer Franck Ribery.

      FOOTBALL 2013 Bayern-Chelsea (Ribery)
    • 81' On successive occasions Chelsea's defence does well to close ranks on sweeping Bayern attacks. This looks like it's in for the long haul.
    • 80' Ivanovic fouls Mandzukic but Bayern don't use the free-kick well.
    • 79' Goetze has an effort but it's well blocked by Cahill.
    • 78' CHELSEA HIT THE BAR! Ivanovic I think from the Lampard corner, massive header, Bayern scramble it clear!
    • 77' Chelea have a corner now as they look to exploit the power-play, as it were.
    • 76' Lengthy delay as Martinez is taken off for some treatment. All very cagey now.
    • 75' Bayern feel Chelsea should have put the ball out with Martinez down again, but he's holding his calf so it obviously isn't that serious. And the ref makes that call anyway.
    • 74' Dante leaves Torres in a heap but the ref waves him up.
    • 73' Kroos has a dig that lands well wide. Bayern don't fancy the headed approach from wide set pieces so are looking for the shot or the scraps outside the box.
    • 72' Play is stopped with a Bayern player down after colliding with Torres. Martinez it was, claiming an elbow.
    • 71' BAYERN SUB: Goetze comes on for Mueller.
    • 71' Terrible kick from Cech after a solid backpass but he manages to retrieve it. Robben now has a shot but blocked for a throw. That was a clanger from Cech.
    • 70' Now Dante blocks an Oscar finish with his face! Corner! Chelsea suddenly burst into life!
    • 69' A long ball releases Hazard, great first touch but a weak finish straight at Neuer! Had to score! And now Ramires smacks one on goal but easy for Neuer.
    • 68' Lampard clears the initial Ribery corner but the loose ball drops to ROBBEN but his volley bobbles wide.
    • 67' WHAT A TACKLE BY ASHLEY COLE! Last-ditch sliding tackle on Mueller after the Germany star was sent scuttling through by Alaba! Corner.
    • 66' Luiz is booked for leaving Mandzukic in a heap. The Bayern striker played for that and both Luiz and the ref bought it hook, line and sinker.
    • 65' Luiz gets a touch on it and Bayern have a corner, which Lahm will take. Chelsea clear.
    • 64' Ramires booked for a heel-clip on Ribery in full flight. Free-kick Bayern wide left...
    • 63' CHELSEA SHOULD HAVE SCORED! A terrible error by Dante as he slips, Schurrle picks it up, Oscar is in but he takes an extra touch and Neuer makes a brilliant save! Now Lampard hits the loose ball on the volley, but just over!
    • 62' Lampard swings in the corner, very deep, too deep in fact and out for a throw.
    • 61' Superb cross by Schurrle this time, Torres flies in but it touches Lahm and flies over. Neuer tries to claim he prevented the corner, cheeky so-and-so.
    • 60' Hazard tries to take Bayern on all alone as Oscar is lying in a heap and his other team-mates sat back defending. Oscar lives. And now Luiz tackles Mueller, Torres wide to Schurrle but the German's cross is too fast for Ramires! Half a chance!
    • 59' Hazard is left in a heap by Martinez but no foul says the ref. Now Ribery has a pop but Cahill I think chucks himself in the way. All Bayern now!
    • 58' Ribery flies in down the left but his cross is nodded clear. Chelsea parking the bus.
    • 57' BAYERN SUB: Martinez replaces Rafinha, with Lahm moving back to full-back.
    • 56' Ribery whips in a low ball to the penalty spot where Robben meets it with a half-volley, but he gets under it and sends the effort over.
    • 55' Schurrle fouls Alaba on the Bayern left. Free-kick in a dangerous spot...
    • 54' Ramires gets his gazelle-like frame back to clear as Chelsea were looking ragged. Could be a long 40 minutes...
    • 53' Bayern now fancy the win and are passing rings around Chelsea...
    • 52' Cole and Robben both rise for a header but, unsurprisingly, both miss the ball.
    • 51' Oscar almost scuttles in down the right. Chelsea doing better now.
    • 50' Chelsea now elect to build more possession than before. Their policy of soaking up pressure worked for a while, but when you have players lik Ribery against you it's always a risk.
    • 49' Ribery with another excellent shot that flies just wide this time!
    • 48' Torres is caught offside.
    • 47' GOAL BAYERN! A screamer from Ribery! What a strike from range!! He cut inside, as he usually does, but this time he unleashes a monster of a strike past a flying Cech! 1-1!!
    • 47' Could be a counter here for Chelsea with Bayern all over the place but a poor pass from Hazard sees Bayern survive.
    • 46' The second half is underway!
    • - Our pal @OptaJoe points out that Torres was only bettered in Europe last season by Ronaldo and Lewandowski. Striker.
    • 45' Half-time and Chelsea lead Bayern 1-0 through a wonderful goal by Torres, but Bayern have seen a lot more of the ball.
    • 44' Robben shoots from the edge of the box after cutting in from the right, but Cech gets down to take that easily.
    • 43' For Web users only - here is a pic of the scenes following Torres' goal.

    • 41' Cahill and Mueller rise for a header, and the Chelsea man is penalised for using his arm.
    • 40' Ramires harshly penalised after dispossessing a dithering Ribery on the Chelsea right.
    • 39' Chelsea counter, Schurrle to Oscar and Luiz has it of all people pops up in the box, but he slips as he turns. Still with Chelsea as Schurrle wins a corner.
    • 38' Chelsea field the corner well as the final header goes wide.
    • 37' ALMOST AN EQUALISER! Superb weighted low pass by Robben to send Mueller through on the right, but a superb flying block by Cahill puts the finish wide. Corner.
    • 36' Bayern are putting together a lot of possession, surely they will break Chelsea down?
    • 35' Terrible shot by Ribery after cutting in from the left on to Lahm's excellent raking pass. Jeers from the Chelsea fans, almost went for a corner.
    • 33' Chelsea get a free-kick after Oscar goes down having nicked the ball away from Ribery. Lucky, as Bayern were in!
    • 32' Clever defending from Cole to let Mueller's ball run out of play, realising it would miss Robben.
    • 31' ALMOST A SECOND FOR TORRES! He twisted inside and out of Dante before smashing a surprise effort inches over the bar! Super wingplay by Schurrle in the build-up!
    • 29' Ribery on the run again, cutting inside from the left and drilling a low shot through Cahill's legs but it's a few yards wide, with Cech leaving it.
    • 28' Luiz is very lucky after hauling down Mandzukic - he was the last man, but the Bayern striker was offside.
    • 27' Superb passing move from Bayern sees Alaba release Ribery, but his cross - aimed for Mueller - is flicked away by Luiz.
    • 26' Ivanovic is caught offside off Lampard's floated ball, having come up for the throw.
    • 25' Robben goes short to Kroos but the routine flops as Chelsea's defence read it. Hazard on the counter now, takes on Alaba, beats him and swings in a cross that Dante pokes clear!
    • 24' Luiz fouls Kroos, leaving his opponent in a heap. Robben over the free-kick wide right...
    • 23' Ribery has done well to make this match - he was receiving his player of the year award last night.

    • 22' Mueller rises to meet the corner but Chelsea clear. And a foul from Ribery on Ramires sees the Frenchman booked.
    • 21' GREAT SAVE BY CECH! A fantastic low drive from Ribery was headed bottom right corner, but a stretching Cech palmed it behind. Corner Bayern!
    • 20' Ribery almost sends Mandzukic in but the ball is too heavy and Cahill watches it behind for a goal kick.
    • 19' More Torres stats for Web users, as Bayern keep the ball - because Chelsea are letting them.
    • 18' Nice stat from our pals at Infostrada - Torres has now scored in the finals of the Euros, Europa League, Community Shield and Super Cup.
    • 17' Lovely turn by Hazard, Chelsea have men over and Hazard slips it wide right to Torres who mis-hits his cross and it almost sneaks in at the far post! Half a yard over!
    • 16' Kroos on the ball as Bayern probe and pass away. Ribery on the left, now Lahm flicks it to Robben but his low driven ball is hacked clear by Luiz.
    • 15' Mandzukic goes down on the edge of the Chelsea box but, despite a roar from the Bayern fans, there is no response from Eriksson.
    • 14' Neuer gathers the corner with ease, under little or no pressure though it must be said.
    • 13' Corner to Chelsea, which will ease the pressure for a while.
    • 12' Rafinha commits a foul on Hazard, which was a shame for Bayern as they had men over.
    • 11' Super ball by Mandzukic to send Mueller scuttling through but his first touch is poor, taking it wide enough for Cech to stretch out a long arm to gather.
    • 10' Torres miscontrols the ball before fouling Kroos. The ref has a word but it was clumsy more than anything.
    • 9' Lahm with a volley as Bayern look to bite back immediately but it's too close to Cech, who holds on to it well.
    • 8' GOAL CHELSEA! And a brilliant one too! A typical Mourinho counter-attack started by Torres, with Hazard running from halfway before feeding Schurrle wide right - super cross from him and Torres, having continued his run and escaped Dante, smashed a wicked finish into the top right. Awesome strike.
    • 7' Robben on the run, Bayern have men over as Luiz is caught out of position - Robben slides Ribery through but he mis-hits his shot from the left side of the box, dragging it well wide of the far post. Should have at least made Cech work, probably should have scored!!
    • 6' Hazard with a long shot that he drags well wide. Still, this is better from Chelsea.
    • 5' Torres has barely had a sniff so far and he gives away a free-kick for backing into Boateng.
    • 4' Bayern come again down the right but Robben gets his run wrong and the ball rolls out of play for a goal kick.
    • 3' Bayern with the best of possession so far. Not unexpected.
    • 2' Bayern with the first attack of note as Mandzukic pulls away at the far post but guides a header well wide.
    • 1' A few minutes behind schedule, the first half of the European Super Cup is underway! Chelsea in blue, Bayern in red. Classic.
    • 19:42 This is the first time in 15 years this match hasn't been in tax haven Monaco. Next season it's in Cardiff. Where next?
    • 19:40 In case you hadn't realised, none of Chelsea's recent signings are playing tonight. Samuel Eto'o and Willian joined from Anzhi this week and are not on the bench. Additionally, summer signings Van Ginkel and De Bruyne are also absent, with Schurrle the only new player in the XI, Mark Schwarzer another summer acquisition on the bench.
    • 19:35 Tonight's referee is multimillionaire Swede Jonas Eriksson. He is 39, does not like to send players off, and reportedly earns his cash as a salesman of some sort.
    • 19:30 HEAD-TO-HEAD: Chelsea have faced Bayern three times in European competition, all in the Champions League. The most famous of these matches was the 2012 final, when Chelsea won on penalties after a 1-1 draw. The other time also saw Chelsea come out on top, winning 6-5 on aggregate over two legs in the 2004-05 quarter-final.
    • 19:25 Franck Ribery of Bayern won UEFA's European Player of the Season award yesterday. Do you think that was a fair result as he was the standout player in Bayern's amazing season? Or should it always go to Ronaldo or Messi, despite what their teams achieve? Let me know on Twitter @Reda_Eurosport.

    • 19:20 In that same press conference, Mourinho challenged the belief that Guardiola always gets the better of him - the stats suggest otherwise...
    • 19:15 Jose Mourinho: "It’s not about me and Pep. It's about Chelsea and it's about Bayern Munich. It's about a Super Cup where the European champion is playing against the Europa League champion. Pep is not European champion and I'm not Europa League champion. We just coach now the European champion and the Europa League champion. This is not about us. It's about Chelsea and Bayern."
    • 19:10 Pep Guardiola: "Mourinho is always very, very good, with quick counter attacks. He is a master at that and everybody knows he is an excellent, excellent trainer. Bastian is better but we are going to check and evaluate his ankle. In the morning I will speak with the doctors and we will decide. Hopefully he will play."
    • 19:05 What do you make of those starting XIs? Does Guardiola not rate Martinez? Is Mourinho simply rotating or does his aversion to starting Juan Mata contradict his claims of wanting to keep the Spaniard? And who will win? Let me know on Twitter @Reda_Eurosport.

    • 19:00 Fernando Torres starts up front for Chelsea, with Mourinho appearing to be considering his fine European record last season and before. Juan Mata is on the bench though, as is John Terry as David Luiz starts.
    • 18:55 For Bayern we are hearing that Lahm will start in midfield in the absence of Schweinsteiger and Martinez, who returns but just to the bench - he is recovering from a minor groin strain. Thiago is out with an ankle injury.
    • 18:50 TEAMS - Bayern: Neuer, Rafinha, Alaba, Boateng, Dante, Lahm, Kroos, Ribery, Robben, Mueller, Mandzukic; Subs: Starke, Van Buyten, Contento, Martinez, Shaqiri, Goetze, Pizarro /// Chelsea: Cech, Ivanovic, Cole, Luiz, Cahill, Ramires, Lampard, Schurrle, Hazad, Oscar, Torres; Schwarzer, Terry, Azpilicueta, Essien, Mikel, Mata, Lukaku

    • 18:50 TEAMS - Bayern: Neuer, Rafinha, Alaba, Boateng, Dante, Lahm, Kroos, Ribery, Robben, Mueller, Mandzukic; Subs: Starke, Van Buyten, Contento, Martinez, Shaqiri, Goetze, Pizarro /// Chelsea: Cech, Ivanovic, Cole, Luiz, Cahill, Ramires, Lampard, Schurrle, Hazad, Oscar, Torres; Schwarzer, Terry, Azpilicueta, Essien, Mikel, Mata, Lukaku

  3. chelsea is a great team unbelievable! bayern muchen­ won.But never give up we shall meet again!

    From Badru, on Tue 10 Sep 11:47
  4. Does of you who are critical of chelsea you are all­ losers, if bayern were playing the spanish giants­ barcelona or real madrid, bayern would have won with­ lots of goals and this shows that english teams have­ muscles.

  5. Very lucky chelsia

    From javhlan A, on Sun 1 Sep 7:52
  6. This will teach Jose Mourinho one lesoon. If he wants­ to reach the level of greatness as Sir Alex Ferguson,­ he should not be over-confident and should have planned­ his team's "penalty-taking" programme­ carefully. Why put a relatively younger and less­ experienced player like Lukaku as the 5th and last­ kicker when you could have put Frank Lampard instead­ who is definitely very experienced?

  7. Lol check the yellow card records. Mou is back

    From Jean, on Sat 31 Aug 11:29
  8. Mou said recently that since Pep is in charge Munich is­ average club... Must feel smart now

    From Jean, on Sat 31 Aug 11:28
  9. Play Torres and loose. Read my previous comment. Karma

    From Jean, on Sat 31 Aug 11:27
  10. I don't think the better team lost. Chelsea showed­ resilience when they lost one man. The bench­ contributed to the loss, BM was dominating the midfield­ and Chelsea needed some stability in that area. This­ required the services of a defence minded holding­ midfielder like Mikel to come in for Ramires­ immediately after the break but Mourinho chose to stick­ to his plan. The effect was sustained pressure on the­ Chelsea's defence which ultimately cost them one­ man and also the cup.

  15. excellent chelsea

    From abhishek, on Sat 31 Aug 2:18
  16. 291. Shut up, you obviously did not watch the game. The­ game was very close and tight in the first half,­ Chelsea were playing good football. Everything changed­ when we lost a player and it was 10 vs 11 against the­ likes of Ribery and Robben, Bayern exploited us by­ abusing the wings, if we had not defended the way we­ did after Hazard scored, the game would have ended­ eariler for us. We didn't want to 'park the­ bus' but what can you do when your playing against­ a team with established players and who are so­ attacking minded, with only 10 men.

    From Toheeb, on Sat 31 Aug 1:12
  17. Mata on the bench??? thats mourinho.... he will­ destroy him just like Kaka...

    From jock uchihas, on Sat 31 Aug 0:48
  18. Mata on the bench !! What a jok Morning you!! Do you­ think Lukaku better than Mata, anyway you got what you­ deseve special losser

    From sam d, on Sat 31 Aug 0:18
  19. Ribery first show the world that indeed he is the­ best......!!! And it was crown with the second goal­ from Javi martinez @ the last seconds of the match....!­ Showin us that with God all tings are possible.....;­ even when all hope is lost.....₹
