LONDON (Reuters) – Liverpool are looking to establish European leadership after winning the Champions League by adding a European Super Cup to their vaults when Chelsea receive the European Champions League on Wednesday in Istanbul.
Istanbul has a special and historic memory for Liverpool, where they witnessed their biggest continental triumphs, where they were 3-0 against AC Milan in the 2005 Champions League final, when he mastered his late and crowned penalties on the shores of the Bosphorus.
It is true that the title of the competition does not take many seriously at the beginning of the season, after a summer break during which most stars relax, but the two teams will not miss the opportunity to bring an extra cup.
Liverpool have won the competition three times and Chelsea once, but nine of the last 10 titles have been leaked to Spanish clubs on an equal footing between Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, which Bayern Munich broke in 2013.
At Besiktas Stadium Vodafone Park Liverpool will look like they were defeated by Chelsea on Sunday from a 4-0 defeat at Manchester United.
After losing a penalty against Manchester City in a Community Shield match, Liverpool moved strongly into the league after beating Norwich City 4-1.
But the big win was overshadowed by the loss of Brazilian goalkeeper Alison Becker for several weeks, said Klopp's coach after a calf injury.
The Reds fans dream that the European Super Cup will be the prelude to a successful start to a home league that failed them last season to score against Manchester City.
Chelsea, on the other hand, are in the game after winning the European Championship title at the expense of their neighbor Arsenal, but many things have changed since then.
Italian coach Maurizio Sarri has left Juventus after one season, with Belgian star Eden Hazard moving to Real Madrid in a big plan.
The training mission was entrusted by the club to his son Frank Lampard, despite entering the profession of just one season with Derby County.
Lampard has defended his colors for 13 seasons (2001-2014), during which he became the historic top scorer with 211 goals in 648 games (according to the club).
Lampard will be Chelsea's first trophy in their second game for Western City, despite starting the season with a painful defeat against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
