Chelsea vs Villarreal
UEFA Super Cup,
Date: Wednesday, 11 August 2021
Kick-off 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Windsor Park.
Chelsea and Villarreal battle it out for the UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday evening at Windsor Park in Belfast.
The UEFA Super Cup may not be the much-coveted offer, but Chelsea and Villarreal will be keen to start European silverware in their hands.
Chelsea have lost each of their last three UEFA Super Cups since 2012 (against Atletico Madrid, Bayern Munich and Liverpool), conceding at least two goals in each win.
Villarreal, on the other hand, won only their first European Cup last year, meaning they are set to make their UEFA Super Cup debut on Wednesday.
Champions League winners enter the fight as a clear favorite. It looks like they have closed Romelu Lukaku’s big deal and they will also be one of the contenders for the big house cup on the continent in the near future.
However, Lukaku is unlikely to be in the squad for this Villarreal match.
Thomas Tuchel, who led the Blues to glory in the Champions League after just half a season at Stamford Bridge, will also be without key players such as Cesar Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, Jorginho and Mason Mount.
They all showed zero minutes on the pitch during the pre-season. Speaking of the friendly season of the summer, Tuchel may be content with his men’s form as the Blues beat Peterborough, Bournemouth and Arsenal before reaching Tottenham 2-2.
Chelsea vs Villarreal Head-to-head
The 2021 UEFA Super Cup provides an opportunity for Chelsea and Villarreal for their first meeting in competitive football.
Chelsea vs Villarreal Prediction
Villarreal will not enter the game in the best spirit after having won every six of their previous friend games before this season. They have scored up to five goals in their last two league games against Leeds (2-2) and Leicester City (3-2 win).
Both teams scored so many goals during this competition, we couldn’t see or keep things back here.
There is no point in supporting Chelsea to win at 1.72 level considering the fact Tuchel will not be able to trust the work of some of his top players here.

We appreciate the 3.50 chance given to Gerard Moreno to score for Villarreal any time here. The Spaniard led his team to their junior UEFA Europa League title by scoring seven goals in the run-up to last season’s second European Championship.
