Match background Only this chapter

The UEFA Super Cup will be an all-English affair for the first time as Liverpool take on Chelsea at the Beşiktaş Park in Istanbul.

• Liverpool, who qualified by claiming their sixth European Cup in Madrid in June, are making their sixth UEFA Super Cup appearance, and are bidding to lift the trophy for the fourth time.

• This is Chelsea's fourth UEFA Super Cup match; having won the first, in 1998, they have lost on their last two appearances.

• Whoever wins in Istanbul will claim England's eighth UEFA Super Cup, fewer only than Spain (15) and Italy (nine). An English side has not triumphed since Liverpool's 2005 success; Premier League clubs have been beaten on their four subsequent appearances, including defeats for Chelsea in 2012 and 2013.

• This will also be the first time a Spanish club has not won the UEFA Super Cup since 2013, when Bayern München beat Chelsea on penalties in Prague.

• Seven UEFA Super Cup finals have previously been contested by domestic rivals: two all-Italian ones, and five involving Spanish teams including four since 2014, most recently Atlético Madrid beating Real Madrid last year.

UEFA Super Cup pedigree
• The Reds' record in the UEFA Super Cup is W3 L2:
1977 W 7-1 v Hamburg (agg: 1-1 a, 6-0 h)
1978 L 3-4 v Anderlecht (agg: 1-3 a, 2-1 h)
1984 L 0-2 v Juventus
2001 W 3-2 v Bayern München
2005 W 3-1 v CSKA Moskva (aet)

• Liverpool won the competition in 1977 and 2005 as European champions (having knocked out Chelsea in the latter semi-final), and in 2001 as UEFA Cup holders. However they lost (as European Cup holders) in the 1978 and 1984 games.

• The 6-0 second-leg win against Hamburg in 1977 equalled the biggest win in a UEFA Super Cup game, matching Ajax's defeat of Milan in 1973. Terry McDermott's hat-trick against Hamburg is one of only two in a UEFA Super Cup match; the other came against Chelsea, scored by Atlético's Radamel Falcao in 2012.

• Victory would take Liverpool level with Real Madrid on four UEFA Super Cups, fewer only than Barcelona and AC Milan's five.

• This is Chelsea's fourth appearance in the UEFA Super Cup, with the record W1 L2:
1998 W 1-0 v Real Madrid
2012 L 1-4 v Atlético Madrid
2013 L 2-2 aet, 4-5 pens v Bayern München

• Chelsea's 1998 UEFA Super Cup triumph came after they had won the previous season's UEFA Cup Winners' Cup; they lost in 2012 as UEFA Champions League winners and in 2013 having won that year's UEFA Europa League.

• Chelsea manager Frank Lampard was captain of the team beaten by Atlético in 2012 and Bayern 12 months later. César Azpilicueta was an unused substitute in that 2013 showpiece.

• The Blues would become the tenth side to win multiple UEFA Super Cups with victory in Istanbul.

Previous meetings
• This is the sides' 11th meeting in UEFA competition, all since 2005, with the previous ten having all come in the UEFA Champions League. Five of those matches were drawn, with Liverpool recording two wins to Chelsea's three – and only one game was won by a margin of more than one goal.

• Their paths first crossed in Europe in the 2004/05 UEFA Champions League semi-finals, Liverpool's Luis García scoring the only goal of the tie four minutes into the second leg at Anfield; the Reds went on to beat AC Milan in a dramatic final in Istanbul.

• After two goalless draws in the following season's group stage, each side won 1-0 at home in the 2006/07 semi-finals; Liverpool prevailed, winning the Anfield penalty shoot-out 4-1. They again met Milan in the final, losing 2-1 in Athens.

• Chelsea reached their first UEFA Champions League final with an extra-time victory against Liverpool in the 2007/08 semi-finals. After a 1-1 first-leg draw at Anfield, the London club won 3-2 after 120 minutes at Stamford Bridge, Lampard scoring their second goal from the penalty spot. The current Chelsea manager was also on target in the final, against Manchester United in Moscow, but his side were defeated 6-5 on penalties after a 1-1 draw.

• Lampard also scored in the clubs' most recent European match, in the second leg of the 2008/09 quarter-final. Chelsea won 3-1 at Anfield in the first game – the only UEFA fixture between the sides to be settled by more than one goal – before a remarkable 4-4 draw in west London in which Lampard scored Chelsea's third and fourth goals. The Blues therefore progressed to the semi-finals, where they lost on away goals to Barcelona.

• Overall, of the 181 fixtures between the clubs, Liverpool have recorded 77 wins to Chelsea's 63 with 41 draws. In 2018/19 Chelsea won 2-1 at Anfield in the League Cup third round thanks to goals from Emerson Palmieri and Eden Hazard; in the Premier League, the game at Stamford Bridge finished 1-1 before a 2-0 Liverpool victory on Merseyside, Sadio Mané (51) and Mohamed Salah (53) scoring early in the second half.

• In domestic cup finals, Chelsea beat Liverpool 3-2 after extra time in the 2004/05 League Cup decider – José Mourinho's first trophy as Blues manager – and 2-1 in the FA Cup in May 2012. Lampard featured in both games for Chelsea, with Jordan Henderson in the Liverpool line-up for the latter.

Form guide
• Liverpool qualified by winning their sixth European Cup in 2018/19, beating Tottenham 2-0 at the Estadio Metropolitano in Madrid on 1 June in the second all-English final thanks to goals from Mohamed Salah, a penalty, and Divock Origi.

• That stretched the Reds' unbeaten run against English clubs to six matches (W4 D2), since that 3-1 home defeat by Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final first leg in April 2009. They have won eight of their 21 matches against domestic rivals in UEFA competition (D8 L5), including the last three having beaten Manchester City home (3-0) and away (2-1) in the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals.

• Liverpool's record in last season's UEFA Champions League was W8 D1 L4 F24 A12. They have won five of their last six European fixtures (L1).

• The Reds have, however, lost six of their last nine UEFA competition matches outside England – although they have won three of the last four.

• Istanbul looms large in the Reds' history; they came from 3-0 down to win the 2005 UEFA Champions League final against AC Milan on penalties at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium, but have yet to win a game outright in the city, their five visits having ended in three defeats and two draws.

• Liverpool lost 2-1 to Beşiktaş in the 2007/08 UEFA Champions League group stage at the Inönü Stadium – the venue that was knocked down to build Beşiktaş Park. They also lost on penalties at Beşiktaş in the 2014/15 UEFA Europa League round of 32 after each side had won 1-0 at home.

• Liverpool's record in four UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W3 L1:
4-2 v Roma, 1983/84 European Champion Clubs' Cup final
3-2 v AC Milan, 2004/05 UEFA Champions League final
4-1 v Chelsea, 2006/07 UEFA Champions League semi-final
4-5 v Beşiktaş, 2014/15 UEFA Europa League round of 32

• The Blues were UEFA Europa League winners in 2018/19, beating Arsenal 4-1 in the competition's first all-English final since Tottenham beat Wolves in the 1972 UEFA Cup. Eden Hazard scored twice at the Baku Olympic Stadium, Olivier Giroud and Pedro Rodríguez also finding the net as Chelsea claimed their second UEFA Europa League title having also triumphed in 2013, their only other appearance in the competition.

• Chelsea were unbeaten in European competition last season, claiming the UEFA Europa League with a record of W12 D3 F36 A10. Their last continental defeat came at Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg in March 2018 (0-3).

• The London club have scored three goals or more in five of their last eight European matches. Their tally of 36 goals in last season's UEFA Europa League was one short of the competition record set by Porto in 2010/11.

• Chelsea's record against English clubs in Europe is W7 D7 L4. The defeat of Arsenal ended a three-game run without a victory in such fixtures (D1 L2), since their 3-1 win at Liverpool in 2009.

• Chelsea have played three UEFA competition games in Istanbul (W1 D1 L1) but will be making their first appearance at Beşiktaş Park. They took on Beşiktaş themselves in the 2003/04 UEFA Champions League group stage, both games ending in 2-0 away wins, but the Istanbul side played that home game in Gelsenkirchen.

• A 5-0 first group stage win at Galatasaray in October 1999 remains Chelsea's joint biggest UEFA Champions League away victory.

• Chelsea's record in five UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W2 L3:
1-4 v Liverpool, 2006/07 UEFA Champions League semi-final
5-6 v Manchester United, 2007/08 UEFA Champions League final
4-3 v Bayern München, 2011/12 UEFA Champions League final
4-5 v Bayern München, 2013 UEFA Super Cup
4-3 v Eintracht Frankfurt, 2018/19 UEFA Europa League semi-final

Links and trivia
• As a Chelsea player, Lampard scored seven goals in 39 matches against Liverpool. His record in matches against the Merseyside club for the Blues was W18 D8 L13.

• Salah joined Chelsea from Basel in January 2014 having scored against the English side in both fixtures during that season's UEFA Champions League group stage, with Basel winning both games. The Egyptian had also found the net in the second leg of Basel's 2012/13 UEFA Europa League semi-final defeat by the Blues. Salah made only 19 appearances for Chelsea in all competitions, scoring twice, before signing for Fiorentina in January 2015.

Head coach Only this chapter

Jürgen Klopp

Date of birth: 16 June 1967
Nationality: German
Playing career: Glatten, Ergenzingen, Pforzheim, Eintracht Frankfurt, Viktoria Sindlingen, Rot-Weiss Frankfurt, Mainz
Coaching career: Mainz, Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool

• Having spent his early career in the lower leagues and failed to break into Eintracht's first team, Klopp turned professional with Mainz, starting off as a striker before becoming a no-nonsense defender. Never played in the top flight but made 325 second-division appearances from 1990 to 2001, setting a club record by scoring 52 goals.

• 'Kloppo', as he is known in Germany, was appointed Mainz's caretaker coach on 28 February 2001, helping the club avoid relegation to the third tier. Duly won a permanent contract and built Mainz into one of the strongest clubs in the 2. Bundesliga; narrowly missed out on promotion in 2002 and 2003 before taking Mainz into the top flight for the first time in 2004 and kept them there until 2007, taking them into the 2005/06 UEFA Cup via the UEFA Fair Play ranking.

• After another promotion near-miss in 2007/08 Klopp left for Dortmund. Took them to sixth in his first season, led them into the UEFA Europa League the next year and then, with a squad full of exciting young talent, oversaw league title wins in 2010/11 and 2011/12, adding the German Cup in the latter campaign with a 5-2 final victory against Bayern München.

• Earned even greater admiration in 2012/13 as he steered Dortmund all the way to the UEFA Champions League final at Wembley, where they lost to Bayern. Dortmund reached more domestic cup finals in 2014 and 2015, losing to Bayern and Wolfsburg respectively, Klopp departing after the latter defeat.

• Succeeded Brendan Rodgers as Liverpool manager in October 2015 and reached the finals of the English League Cup and UEFA Europa League – helped by a quarter-final defeat of Dortmund – in his first season. Lost both, and there was more final disappointment in 2017/18, which ended in UEFA Champions League defeat by Real Madrid in Kyiv. Although Liverpool lost out to Manchester City in the 2018/19 Premier League, finishing second despite collecting 97 points and losing only once, solace came with victory against Tottenham in the UEFA Champions League final in Madrid.


Frank Lampard

Date of birth: 20 June 1978
Playing career:
West Ham, Swansea (loan), Chelsea, Manchester City, New York City
Coaching career: Derby, Chelsea

• The son of former West Ham left-back Frank Lampard Sr, he started his career with the Hammers as an apprentice and had a short spell on loan at Swansea before making his debut for the east London outfit. Moved across London to join Chelsea in 2001.

• A key figure in Chelsea's back-to-back title wins in 2004/05 and 2005/06, he equalised in the 2008 UEFA Champions League final defeat against Manchester United and scored the winner in the 2009 FA Cup decider versus Everton.

• Played a key role in Chelsea's remarkable 2012 UEFA Champions League success by converting penalties in successive rounds against Napoli and Benfica and another in the final shoot-out win against Bayern München. Surpassed Bobby Tambling's club record of 202 goals with a second-half double against Aston Villa in May 2013 and captained Chelsea to UEFA Europa League glory at the expense of  Benfica in Amsterdam four days later.

• First capped by England in 1999, he scored three times at UEFA EURO 2004, his first major tournament; also featured at the FIFA World Cup in 2006 and 2010, plus UEFA EURO 2012, before retiring from international football after the 2014 World Cup having scored 29 goals in 106 England appearances, including a record nine penalties.

• Ended a 13-year playing association with Chelsea in 2014, going on to spend a year with both Manchester City and New York City before announcing his retirement in February 2017. Appointed Derby manager in May 2018, he took the club to the Championship play-off final in his sole season in charge; returned to Stamford Bridge as manager in July 2019 to succeed Maurizio Sarri.

UEFA Super Cup: All-time records

• There have been 43 previous UEFA Super Cup finals, including 15 at Monaco's Stade Louis II after the showpiece moved to a one-off match in the principality in 1998. Since 2013, the fixture has been held in a different European city each year: Prague in 2013, Cardiff in 2014, Tbilisi in 2015, Trondheim in 2016, Skopje in 2017 and Tallinn in 2018.

• Of the 43 previous editions, the team that won the European Cup have triumphed on 23 occasions, most recently Real Madrid in 2017. Since the UEFA Cup winners began taking part in 2000, following the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup's demise, eight of the 19 finals have been won by the side that lifted the UEFA Cup/UEFA Europa League the preceding May, including Atlético Madrid's 2018 success.

• Including 2019, Spain holds the record for the number of times their teams have participated in the competition with 27 entries (Barcelona 9, Real Madrid 7, Sevilla 5, Atlético Madrid 3, Valencia 2, Real Zaragoza 1). England have had 18 (Liverpool 6, Manchester United 4, Chelsea 4, Nottingham Forest 2, Arsenal 1, Aston Villa 1), five more than Italy (AC Milan 7, Juventus 2, Internazionale 1, Parma 1, Lazio 1, Sampdoria 1).

• Spanish clubs have recorded the most victories with 15 (Barcelona 5, Real Madrid 4, Atlético 3, Valencia 2, Sevilla 1), six more than Italy and eight more than England.

• Barcelona's 2015 triumph took them level with Milan on five wins. Real Madrid moved on to four in 2017, one more triumph than Liverpool.

• Seven previous finals have pitted teams from the same country. Milan beat Sampdoria 3-1 on aggregate in 1990 and lost 2-1 to Parma three years later before the all-Spanish affair between Barcelona and Sevilla in 2006 and Real Madrid's 2014 defeat of Sevilla. In 2015, Barcelona beat Sevilla in Tbilisi; Real Madrid beat Sevilla in Trondheim 12 months later but lost to Atlético in 2018. The 2019 final is the first between two English clubs.

• Eight finals have been decided in extra time, the beneficiaries being Aston Villa (1982, 3-1 versus Barcelona), Parma (1993, 2-1 versus Milan), Galatasaray (2000, 2-1 golden goal victory versus Real Madrid), Liverpool (2005, 3-1 versus CSKA Moskva),  Barcelona (twice: 2009, 1-0 versus Shakhtar Donetsk; 2015, 5-4 v Sevilla), Real Madrid (2016, 3-2 v Sevilla) and Atlético Madrid (2018, 4-2 v Real Madrid).

• The 2013 edition is the only one to have been settled by a penalty shoot-out, Bayern beating Chelsea 5-4 on penalties after a 2-2 draw in Prague.

• Barcelona became the first side to score five times in a one-off final with 2015's 5-4 defeat of Sevilla, eclipsing Atlético's 4-1 success over Chelsea in 2012; Atlético also scored four goals in the 2018 match while Liverpool (2001, 2005), Real Madrid (2002, 2016), Sevilla (2006) and Milan (2007) all managed three goals.

• Atlético's 2012 win (4-1) equalled Sevilla's 3-0 defeat of Barcelona in 2006 as the biggest margin of victory in a single-match final.

• There have been four 1-0 results: Chelsea (1998), Lazio (1999) – in the first two one-off finals – Milan (2003) and Barcelona (2009) were the victors.

• There has never been a UEFA Super Cup that finished scoreless after 120 minutes.

• The fastest goal came in the 2018 decider when Diego Costa gave Atlético Madrid the lead against Real Madrid after just 50 seconds.

• Radamel Falcao (2012, Atlético v Chelsea) and Terry McDermott (1977, Liverpool v Hamburg, second leg) are the only players to have scored three times in one UEFA Super Cup game. McDermott's hat-trick was the quicker, registered in a 17-minute spell either side of the interval.

• The only own goal seen in a UEFA Super Cup final since it permanently became a one-off game in 1998 came from Feyenoord's Patrick Paauwe, 15 minutes into his team's 3-1 reverse to Real Madrid in 2002.

• Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes became the first player sent off in the history of the competition, against Zenit in 2008. Porto's Rolando and Fredy Guarín were both dismissed in 2011.

Competition history
The UEFA Super Cup was not staged in three seasons since its 1973 inception. In 1974, following political problems, Bayern of the Federal Republic of Germany did not play Magdeburg of the German Democratic Republic. Then, in 1981, Liverpool and Dinamo Tbilisi failed to find a date to contest the competition. Following the Heysel tragedy on 29 May 1985, Juventus and Everton did not play the 1985 UEFA Super Cup.
