BREAKING: Chelsea Defeat Villareal On Penalties To Win UEFA Super Cup

Chelsea has won the 2021 Super Cup after a 6-5 penalty shootout victory over Villarreal.

After Villarreal held Chelsea to a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes in the UEFA Super Cup final on Wednesday, extra time was required to decide the first European title of the season.

Chelsea’s strong start was rewarded in Belfast with a 27th-minute goal from Hakim Ziyech, but Gerard Moreno’s equalize was little more than Villarreal’s improved second-half display deserved.

With Romelu Lukaku set to return to Stamford Bridge for a club-record sum of £97 million ($135 million), Thomas Tuchel’s astonishing impact since taking control of the Blues in January has heightened expectations for Chelsea to challenge in all competitions this season.
