Chelsea defeats Villarreal 6-5 in a penalty shootout to lift the Uefa Super Cup for a second time after a dramatic 120 minutes of play ended 1-1 in Belfast.

Substitute goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga saved captain Raul Albiol’s penalty at Windsor Park 

Hakim Ziyech opened the scoreline for the Blues midway through the opening 45 minutes but was then forced off with what looked like a worrying shoulder injury before half-time.

The Spaniards hit the woodwork on either side of the break before Gerard Moreno equalised in the 73rd minute to force extra time.

It was the first time the Super Cup was played in Northern Ireland and 13,000 club-record generated a fantastic atmosphere in the south Belfast stadium, the highest attendance at any sports event in the country since the advent of Covid-19 pandemic.
