As an introduction in the official start of the new season of European club competitions, this Friday at Louis II stadium in Monaco will play traditional UEFA Super Cup match, in which this time meet the winner of the Champions League English Chelsea and the winner of the Europa League, the Spanish Atletico Madrid.
Certainly that everyone from this match are expecting a real spectacle, as we will see in action again some of the world’s best players, and considering that both teams this season have played several competitve matches,then their form would have to be on the high level.
This especially applies to the current European champions who are currently on the leading position of the English Premier League with nine points.
However, they are due to this match in the UEFA Supercup played their third-round match earlier, so they have one more match in comparison to other teams, but next to them maximum number of points so far have just Swansea and Everton.
But what particularly pleases coach Di Matteo at the start of this season is a great realization of his players, who in three Premier league matches scored eight goals, while two more they gave to Manchester City in the English Super cup, which in the end they lost with 3-2.
But apparently this defeat did not too much affect them , as in the Premier league they are so far on unstoppable run in which teams like Wigan, Reading and Newcastle were fallin.In those matches Chelsea´s new player Eden Hazard, played brilliantly, and so far his the only one of new signing who imposed himself to coach Di Matteo.
And when we speak about them, we must say that the new “residents” at Stamford Bridge become a defender Azpilicueta from Marseille, then in the midfield already mentioned Hazard, who arrived from Lille, the young Brazilian Oscar from Internacional and Marin from Werder Bremen, while in attack so far the only new name is Moses from Wigan.On the other hand,Drogba,Bosingwa,Lukaku and Kalou have left the team.
Chelsea probable lineup 4-2-3-1: Cech;Ivanovic, Cahill, Luiz, Cole;Lampard, Mikel, ;Mata, Hazard, Bertrand;Torres
Unlike Chelsea, Atletico Madrid has so far played only two matches in the Spanish Primera, but it was enough to make assured that the team is no weaker than in the last year, especially in the offensive area where they have great striker Falcao.
In fact, he practically defeated alone Athletic Bilbao, when he scored three goals in his team’s home victory of 4:0, while the one goal added Adrian, who also confirmed that this season he is in plans of coach Simeone.
Besides the great playmaker Diego, Atletico this summer left defenders Dominguez, Perea and Antonio Lopez, then midfielders Eduardo Salvio, Ruben Micael,Assuncao, left winger Merida and striker Pizzi.
On the other hand, at Vicente Calderon have arrived defender Cata Diaz of Getafe, defender Cisma from Santander ,midfielders Emre from Fenerbahce and Rodriguez from Porto, while from the loan is back offensive midfielder Raul Garcia and striker Diego Costa.
All in all, they have a respectable squad, which certainly can be equally involved in the fight for third and fourth place in the Spanish La liga.
Atletico Madrid probable lineup 4-2-3-1 : Courtois;Juanfran, Miranda, Godin, Filipe Luis;Suarez, Gabi;Koke, Turan, Rodriguez;Falcao
Prediction : Having in mind that both teams grown extremely offensive style of play, then in their mutual duel, nothing but a goals galore would be a surprise.Over 2,5 goals.
