It’s an all-Premier League affair in Istanbul tonight, as Champions League holders Liverpool take on Europa League winners Chelsea at the Vodafone Arena.
Chief Football Correspondent James Olley and Liverpool Football Correspondent David Lynch are in Istanbul for all the build-up and analysis before the action kicks off at 8pm BST.
For the first time in Super Cup history, we have an all-English tie. And even though Liverpool will take on Chelsea in the Turkish capital of Istanbul, it will feel every bit like a home fixture for both clubs.
As Jurgen Klopp mentioned in his press conference yesterday, the Reds have a big community of Liverpool fans in the region and many are expected to turn up in Liverpool shirts for tonight’s game. Chelsea’s global appeal means they too will have a section of Turkish fans behind them tonight.
The atmosphere at the Vodafone Park is usually raucous, electric and fiery when Besiktas play here; tonight should be no different.
