control to win on penalties against the English, as they do.

It was a good start for the team in blue. 8 minutes into the first half one of Chelsea’s new signings, Andre Schurrle delivered a low cross for Fernando Torres to finish a superb half volley into the top right corner of the net. Is Torres finally back?

Chelsea kept hold of their lead throughout the rest of the first half but Bayern Munich responded three minutes after the interval.

A well controlled dribble from Franck Ribery gave the Frenchman the opportunity of a low strike shot at goal outside the Chelsea penalty area giving his side the equaliser. Ribery celebrated his goal by running to his team’s new manager, Pep Guardiola.

Ribery flew in from Monaco before the match after receiving the UEFA best player award.

5 minutes before the 90 minute mark, Chelsea’s Ramires received his second yellow card of the night indicating a sending off after a studded tackle on Munich’s new signing, Mario Gotze.

After 90 minutes the score was 1-1 the same scoreline in last year’s Champions League final before extra time.

It only took the first three minutes of extra time for Chelsea to regain the lead. A long run from Eden Hazard on the left wing entered Munich’s penalty area completely unmarked nailing his shot past Manuel Neuer. The German goalkeeper knows he could have done better to keep the ball out of goal.

With just seconds remaining in added time the Super Cup looked like it was going to make it’s way to Stamford Bridge but Javier Martinez spoiled the party.

An awkward long delivery into Chelsea’s penalty area gave Dante a flick pass to unmarked Martinez slotting home the all important equaliser.

Revenge was on the table for Munich after losing their previous shootout with Chelsea at their home turf in the 2012 Champions League final.

There was nothing between the two as both sides scored their opening four shots. Chelsea’s David Luiz, Oscar, Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole did their bit for the team while Munich’s David Alaba, Toni Kroos, Phillip Lahm and Franck Ribery kept the shootout level.

A fifth goal scored by Munich’s Xherdan Shaqiri put the reds in the lead meaning that Chelsea striker, Romelu Lukaku had to score. Lukaku took a short and unconfined run up not putting enough power behind the ball giving Neuer a comfortable save to win the Super Cup for Munich.

Lukaku covered his face with his hands in shame with his team mates Demba Ba and Michael Essien trying to cheer the Belgium international up.

The Super Cup win for Munich was the team’s fourth trophy in 2013 with one more possible trophy to add in December, the FIFA Club World Cup.

Friday night’s Super Cup meeting was Chelsea’s second appearance in a row in the competition as the team failed to beat Atletico Madrid no thanks to Radamel Falcao’s hat-trick.

Guardiola has done well to receive good first impressions in front of Munich supporters by adding his 3rd Super Cup victory (Barcelona 2009 & 2011) and his overall 15th trophy as manager.

“The special one”, Jose Mourinho was hoping to make Guardiola’s start at Bayern Munich a difficult one as both managers have been noted for their rivalry during their days as managers for Real Madrid and Barcelona.

The Londoners will need to forget about their night in Prague and move onto their next game very quickly as their next match is away to Fulham on Saturday 14th September.
