The Reason Why I Think Villarreal Might Beat Chelsea In The Super Cup Final
Chelsea and Villarreal go head to head for the Super Cup trophy on Wednesday and many football fans think it will be a walk in the park for Chelsea against Villarreal but I think the Spanish team could beat Chelsea and there is a reason why I think so.
Villarreal shocked the whole world when they beat Manchester United on penalties to win the UEFA Europa League in May and Chelsea also were the underdogs against Manchester City in the final of the UEFA Champions League last season, so the Super Cup final is the show of the underdogs.
Why I Think Villarreal Will Beat Chelsea. (Tactics)
Villareal coach Unai Emery has expressed his desire to win the Super Cup against Chelsea. Although the Spanish coach wants to win, the team will play like they have nothing to lose and that could be very dangerous for a team like Chelsea.
Villareal defended well against Manchester United and they were dangerous whenever they got a set-piece in the final of the Europa League, and that was how they were able to hold Manchester United.
Villareal’s Low block. Because Villarreal cannot match Chelsea players quality one on one, Villarreal will most likely play a low block against Chelsea on Wednesday and that’s where Chelsea will have problems.
A Low block tactic is where all the midfielders and defenders are behind the ball and are always defending and waiting for counter attacks.
Chelsea couldn’t break Leicester City’s low block in the final of the F.A Cup last season. Aston Villa also beat Chelsea in their last EPL match of last season using the same tactics.
If Villarreal deploy a low block against Chelsea and defend well, they might beat Chelsea on Wednesday.
