The UEFA Super Cup Final in Istanbul had it all. Goals, turn score, extra time and penalties. Suspensions, VAR, nice football. After the Champions League, Liverpool also won the European Super Cap in the final with the winner of the Europa League, Chelsea.
The Blue opened the scoring with Zirou, but Fermino-Mane’s collaboration led the game to extra time. They gave the Reds their lead, but Zorzino’s penalty kick led to the penalty shoot-out.
In penalty shoot-out everyone scored. All but one. The last. Ibrahim executed, Adrian (absent of Alison) knocked out and awarded Jurgen Klopp his second trophy on the team bench and Liverpool the fourth UEFA Super Cup of his history. As in her previous Istanbul final, Liverpool again celebrated the title on penalties.
