Full Time: Kepa Arrizabalaga Hands Chelsea Their First Super Cup Trophy Since 1998

The Blues have just been handed their first UEFA Super Cup after a superb last save by Kepa Arrizabalaga

Kepa Arrizabalaga is the hero for the night as Chelsea wins the UEFA Super cup following penalty shoot out against Villarreal.

Despite having taken an early lead, Blues were led into a penalty shoot out after failing to maintain their lead.

Gerard Moreno right in the second half provided Villarreal with the provided response message to Hakim Ziyech’s first half finish.

The game remained tough fought until the last minute which saw them advance into a penalty shoot out.

Perceived as a mistake was Tuchel taking off N’Golo Kante which led to Villarreal regaining pressure against Blues.

With Chelsea maintaining the stance leading into a penalty, Kai Havertz taking the first kick fired right into the goalkeeper’s arms.

But Azpilicueta banging in his own kick brilliantly, Chelsea saw their hopes kick back in as Alonso, Mount, Jorginho, Pulisic and Rudiger all netted.

The star of the match should clearly be Kepa Arrizabalaga who was brilliant to have saved two penalty kicks.

Although the kick could have ended earlier when he almost kept one out but the shooter was just too lucky to have fired wide far from the Spaniards reach.

Chelsea first German manager, Thomas Tuchel becomes Chelsea first manager to win the UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE and Super Cup in one leg.
