CHE vs VIL Dream11 Team Chelsea vs Villarreal UEFA Super Cup Live Score August 12

Share

CHE vs VIL Dream11: The UEFA Super Cup is an annual event that is contested between the winners of the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League. Chelsea defeated Manchester City in the UCL finals while Villarreal won against Manchester United on penalties in the Europa finals. The Blues have looked good in pre-season. They were held to a 2-2 draw against Spurs in the last game following a 2-1 win against Arsenal.

CHE vs VIL Dream11 Team Prediction

Villarreal won their first-ever European title in May. Manager Unai Emery is a serial winner in European ties, and Thomas Tuchel’s side will be wary of this fact. The Yellow Submarine is winless in their six pre-season games. They drew level with Leeds United last time out following a 3-2 loss at the hands of Leicester city.

Villarreal Starting XI (Likely)

Sergio Asenjo, Juan Foyth, Aissa Mandi, Raul Albiol, Alberto Moreno, Manuel Morlanes, Manu Trigueros, Yeremi Pino, Alfonso Pedraza, Paco Alcacer, Gerard Moreno

Captain Options

Kai Havertz has made a habit of popping up with important goals at big stages. The German played well in the second part of the season. In 18 appearances last season, he scored four goals and added three assists.

Gerard Moreno is the standout pick from the Spanish side. He had 23 goals and 7 assists in the league last year and a further 7 goals and 3 assists in the Europa League.

Differential Picks

Marcus Alonso could be an interesting differential pick. The left wing-back spends more time in the opposition box than his own. He gets into good goalscoring positions occasionally and never shies away from taking a shot.

CHE vs VIL Dream 11 Teams

GK: E Mendy
DEF: A Rudiger, A Moreno, M Alonso
MID: M Trigueros, M Kovacic, Y Pino, H Ziyech
FOR: G Moreno, T Werner, K Havertz

Where to Watch: In India, the game will be broadcast LIVE on Sony TEN 2 and Sony TEN 2 HD. You can also stream it on SONYLIV.COM

Who will win?

Villarreal has had a longer pre-season and is unbeaten in their last 15 games in European competition. Chelsea on the other side has lost their last three UEFA Super Cup encounters. However, there is a clear difference in quality between the two sides. The CHE vs VIL Today Match Prediction odds are in favor of Chelsea to get the win by a narrow margin.
