Three Reasons Why Villarreal Will Beat Chelsea Just Like They Defeated Man United
The Football world’s attention will be focused on today’s mouthwatering contest in Belfast between Chelsea FC and Villarreal for the UEFA Super Cup Trophy. A reminder that the Super Cup is usually played between two teams that won the Champions League and the Europa League in the previous season.

According to research, both teams have never met each other before in a competitive match. So it’s impossible to make a prediction based on their past meetings.
Chelsea has one Super Cup trophy out of the five finals they have played in their history. While for Villarreal, they have never won the Super Cup before as this final is their first.
A reminder that Emery lost the 2019 Europa League final to Chelsea when he was Arsenal’s manager. But yesterday, he said his Villarreal team will play today’s game with passion and determination.

Tuchel on the other end said Chelsea will give all their best to take the trophy to London.
However, here are three reasons why Villarreal would win this game just like they won against Manchester United in the Europa League final last season:
1. The Underdogs Role is Where Villarreal’s Strength Lies

The Submarine Yellow were regarded as the underdogs before they won Man United by a penalty shoot-out to lift the Europa League last campaign.
Emery also talked about this in his interview recently that they will take confidence from the way they performed against Manchester United and give their best against Chelsea today.
2. Unai Emery Planning To Take A Revenge

A reminder that Emery in his conference talked more about how Chelsea defeated his Arsenal team in the 2019 Europa League final in Baku, which means that he is planning to take revenge this time.
3. Tuchel Plans To Rest Some Chelsea Stars

Tuchel disclosed yesterday that some of his first-team players who had returned late from their holidays might not be involved today as he would prefer utilizing the players that started and completed their preseason games. Big names like Thiago Silva, Jorginho, Mason Mount, Reece James, Ben Chilwell, and Emerson are on the list of players who returned late which is now a concern to the Chelsea fans who read gaffer statements yesterday because these players were instrumental to Chelsea success last season.
Nevertheless, football is an unforeseen event which means that the match could go the other way round.
