UEFA have made a decision on the UEFA Super Cup after Chelsea booked a place in the fixture.

The Blues gave themselves the chance to become Super Cup champions for only the second time after winning the Champions League last weekend, defeating Manchester City in Porto.

Chelsea reached the Super Cup after winning the Champions League in 2012, but they were stunned by a Radamel Falcao hat-trick, losing 4-1 to Atletico Madrid, and they were beaten on penalties by Bayern Munich a year later after they won the Europa League.

Their fortunes didn’t get much better in 2019 after losing on penalties again following another Europa League crown, this time losing to Liverpool

That means their only Super Cup victory to date remains 1998 when they beat Real Madrid 1-0 after a UEFA Cup victory earlier in the year.

And they will have to defeat Spanish opposition again to add to their sole super Cup victory, set to take on Europa League winners Villarreal in August.
