UEFA Champions League titleholders Chelsea will take on UEFA Europa League kings Villarreal CF at Windsor Park in Belfast on Wednesday as the 2021 UEFA Super Cup offers the first piece of continental silverware up for grabs this season. Make sure to catch all the action, and all UEFA Champions League, Europa League, and Europa Conference League action on Paramount+.

Thomas Tuchel’s squad defeated Pep Guardiola and Manchester City in Porto to be crowned European champions for the second time in their history while Villarreal saw off Manchester United to earn their first-ever major title and Unai Emery’s fourth UEL winner’s medal.

Both clubs are already in at the group stage for this campaign’s Champions League and will be keen to make a strong start to the term as they seek improved domestic displays on top of further European success.

Here’s how you can watch the match and everything you need to know:

Storylines

Chelsea: The Blues are currently completing the return of Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan and that move is expected to go through this week with Sevilla’s Jules Kounde another target as the Londoners aim to add to the depth available to Tuchel.

Preseason has been fairly solid with two wins and a draw and Chelsea’s Premier League opener is at home to Crystal Palace this coming weekend before a tough run of Arsenal, Liverpool, Aston Villa, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City.

Villarreal: Villarreal have just announced that Gerard Moreno has extended his contract with the club until 2027 which is a big boost after his goal scoring exploits last season and Pau Torres will be back in action after his double UEFA Euro 2020 and Tokyo Olympics adventure with Spain.

However, preseason has not been kind to the Yellow Submarine with three losses and three draws as well as two cancelled friendlies and accusations that the team have been too aggressive after Fer Nino’s shocking tackle on Wesley Fofana did serious damage.
