Super Cup: Chelsea are Europe king, defeat Villarreal to win first 2021/2022 trophy

Chelsea have won their first 2021/2022 trophy, UEFA Super Cup, beating Villarreal 6-5 on penalty shootouts on Wednesday to become king of Europe.

The match ended on 1-1 on duration time which necessitated a extra-time which produced no goal, with penalty shootouts needed to decided the winner.

A dominant start by the European champions was rewarded in Belfast as Hakim Ziyech fired Chelsea into a 27th minute lead, but Gerard Moreno’s equaliser was no more than Villarreal’s improved second-half display deserved.
