The Liverpool-Chelsea of the Supercopa of Europe 2019 was a vibrant duel and with a lot of action, that finish smiling to the 'reds' on the horn. After 120 minutes with occasions, rhythm and goals, the men added the trophy to the Champions of the past course, because in the last launching of the batch of penaltis, Tammy Abraham did not define with a shot centred that took out Adrián San Miguel.
Although the 'blues' appeared like favourable victim for the ones of Mersey, planted face at all times, and the duel was more balanced that the first day of the Premier League, in which the men of Frank Lampard drowned in Old Trafford against a good Manchester United (4-0) whereas the ones of Jürgen Klopp arrollaban to the Norwich home (4-1).
With a historical tripleta referee's feminine arbitrating for the first time a meeting of masculine football started the battle in Istanbul, where prompt began to see fogonazos in one and another goal. After diverting Andreas Christensen a dangerous centre for Mohamed Salah, Kepa had to use all its skill to detain a finish of the Egyptian, although the answer of the londinenses was conclusive.
Supported in the quality of Christian Pulisic and N'Golo Kanté, the team of the capital puto première in a very clear occasion of an active Pedro Rodríguez, that between the goalkeeper and the stick finish clearing. The cancerbero touched the just his zurdazo escorado so that the spherical struck the crossbar before going out sacked, in an action that left with the fright in the body to the followers of the that later would be supercampeón European.
The Liverpool advanced metres and the guardameta had to cover some roads of water that beaded in his defence, although it could not taponar the one who would be the first so much of the duel, work of Olivier Giroud. Kanté Launched the played, Pulisic went only against the world and filtered a perfect pass for the French, that crossed the just with his left-handed as to lodge the balloon in the meshes. Shortly after it could expand the advantage the American, but his golazo was cancelled by offside.
The Liverpool reacts and equalises the Supercopa
To the 'reds' was them complicating the aim, but everything changed with the entrance of Roberto Firmino to the terrain of game. Hardly it took three minutes the Brazilian in justifying that it was worth it to gather again to the trident, because to a big pass of Fabinho answered with a left for Sadio Mané in front of Kepa, touching the just the leather so that the African marked to pleasure.
The one of Maceió stressed the command of his, although the 'blues' resisted and did not want to leave carry. When more they suffered, again it appeared Kepa to solve the ballot, as in a double occasion initiated by Salah that could not blocar but to which answered with a spectacular stop to divert the finish back of Virgil go Dijk, that struck in the stick but neither finish in the network.
The extention remains in tables and the penaltis decide
With a warning per person on the horn 'pactó' the previous rest to the extention, in which neither there was truce. Again Firmino put until the kitchen and won the background line, from where yielded a pass to the heart of the area so that Mané commissioned this time to put by in front to the ones of Klopp. After this the leadership happened to Abraham, that first forced to Adrián to use all its skill and afterwards left fall in front of the archer to cause a discussed penalti, that in spite of the controversy aroused was not reviewed by the VAR.
Jorginho Converted from the eleven metres and the English youngster was about to to sentence before the rest of the extra time, to the that arrived again in tables, with a tie to two. In spite of the respect and to the fear to lose that it dominated the second time, there were two opportunities to stand out, but finish them of Mason Mount and Pedro neither attained to subject to the 'reds', that knew to survive after moving in the wire.
The batch of penaltis always is wayward, and in the last launching, to Abraham touched him fail. Firmino, Jorginho, Fabinho, Barkley, Origi, Mount, Alexander-Arnold, Emerson and Salah converted his shots, but when to the of Camberwell touched him force the sudden death, crashed in Adrián. His attempt went out too centred and the goalkeeper diverted with the feet, the just so that the Liverpool touched again the glory and Chelsea remained with the boots put but drowned in the bank.
