Chelsea and Atlético latest in a long line

UEFA.com looks back on the UEFA Super Cup record of English and Spanish clubs ahead of the meeting of Club Atlético de Madrid and Chelsea FC in Monaco on 31 August.

When Club Atlético de Madrid and Chelsea FC meet in the UEFA Super Cup on 31 August they will be continuing a long tradition of Spanish and English clubs taking part in the showpiece.

The first representation in the competition by either country came in the fourth edition, in 1977, when Liverpool FC overpowered Hamburger SV 7-1 on aggregate. The Reds competed again the following season but were beaten by RSC Anderlecht, with the first meeting between an English and a Spanish club in the fixture taking place in 1979 when Nottingham Forest FC defeated FC Barcelona.

That was the first of four English-Spanish encounters in the UEFA Super Cup, including Valencia CF's victory on away goals against Nottingham Forest in 1980. Eighteen years later, Chelsea made their first and only appearance to date, upsetting the odds against UEFA Champions League winners Real Madrid CF with a 1-0 victory. Atlético also beat the European Champion Clubs' Cup victors in their only previous involvement, triumphing 2-0 against FC Internazionale Milano.
