Bayern, being the reigning 2013 Champions League holders, and Chelsea, the 2013 Europa League champions, are set for the high-stakes showdown Friday evening in Prague. The UEFA Super Cup, adding another chapter to an intriguing history, and bragging rights are all on the line. On paper, this has all the makings to end up being a filthy, filthy match - and by 'filthy', I mean 'mindmeltingly fantastic'. Let's break it down.
Now, like two star-crossed lovers that can’t seem to part from one another, we get to see them go head-to-head yet again. Pep, in his first year at Bayern, moulding his squad into his Tiki-Taka image; Mourinho doing the same with his “second coming” at Chelsea. Who will come out on top can only be left to speculation, and endless pub-debate. I’m just glad we only have to wait one more day to see these two kings of modern football square off against each other once more – clubs and managers alike.
