Liverpool and Chelsea will do battle at Besiktas’ Vodafone Park tonight, where one of them will be crowned the winners of the − *checks notes* − Super Cup. It’s the first time the Super Cup, which pits the winners of the two main European club competitions against each other, has been an all-English affair. The Reds, if you haven’t already heard, triumphed in last season’s Champions League, while the Blues lifted the Europa League. Our guide reveals all you need to know to watch Liverpool vs Chelsea this evening, including full live stream details.
Though silverware is at stake tonight, the Super Cup is a game that both sides probably could have done without. Liverpool have already lost Allison to injury and would almost certainly rather be saving themselves for the lengthy race for the Premier League title, while Chelsea desperately need to put some hours in on the training ground, following their humiliating 4-0 defeat at the hands of Man Utd on Sunday.
Regardless, whichever side you’re on it could be a really entertaining game − and you can either watch it on TV or stream it. Here are the details.
