38th edition of the UEFA Super Cup will take place at Prague's Eden Arena between Champions League winners Bayern Munich and Europa Cup holders Chelsea.
Once again it’s the same two teams that meet in the historic champion’s league final of 2011-2012 season. Yes things have changed at both clubs and water has flown down the river Thames and as well Danube. However the uncanny rivalry and connection between the two clubs although from two separate European powerhouse nations is yet to be reignited!
History always has put Germany and England at logger heads and in this historical clash of these twp titan teams it is no different. Bayern fans still feels appalled at how their team lost in the end gasp strike from the Chelsea Messiah Drogba so called last appearance for the London team. The blue’s however see it as a miracle to make their circle complete as they defeated Bayern in their home ground and to a team stronger to them compared on paper then and even now.
However the situation at both the clubs have changed with the most notably being the change in managers. New high profile recruits have come in for both the teams with the “Special One” Mourinho returning to Chelsea and last season’s most successful manager Heynckes being replaced by another notable one Pep Guardiola.
The UEFA super cup 2013 will be a clash of the winner of the Europa and the CL tourneys this time though with Bayern being the defending CL Champions! Chelsea would have hoped to defend their Cl only for BAYERN to win as Chelsea became Europa winners which must say is an Irony or the destined meet of the two teams to reignite their old factions despite belonging from separate nations.
As for the connection Robben a onetime successful blues’ player and that under Mourinho when they won the EPL is now a seasoned Bayern Munchen campaigner so it can be well estimated that is more than one match tourney. Not to be played in the spirit of exhibition but rather for the pride and honour of winning the single match trophy alike is the main USP of this clash as the two teams will also be warming up for the inter European club rivalry in the form of CL clash for this season soon enough.
So the football will gear up for yet another mouth watering clash when the strategies of the tow successful mangers of the modern teams will clash. Also the style of different plays will clash against each other as the Eden Arena in Prague will warm up
