You all must know that Chelsea will be playing Bayern on August 30 for the Super Cup and I wanted to know who you think will win.
We did beat Bayern In the Champions league finals in a penalty shootout, but I think we can say that we were lucky to even get to the finals.
When we played Barcelona in the semi-finals, the Catalans had far more shots on goals than us and were dominating, not to mention all the times they it the post. But with Petr Cech doing a good job, Drogba's goal assisted by Ramires and Torres's goal (Torres can score) we made it to the finals.
Some people can also say that we were lucky to beat Bayern as well, because the Bavarians dominated the match as well. Though with Drogba awesome header in the end, we were able to equalize the score and head into a penalty shootout.
But that was in 2012. Now, both teams have a new managers and a new teams, but which team as improved.
Chelsea starter against Bayern to 2013-14 strongest likely starters
2012:GK: Cech, CB: Luiz and Cahill, LB: Cole, RB: Bosingwa, CM: Mikel and Lampard, CAM: Mata, Kalou and Bertrand (not Traore), ST: Drogba
2013:GK: Cech, CB: Luiz and Cahill, LB: Cole, RB: Ivanovic, CM: Ramires and Lampard, CAM: Mata, Hazard and Oscar( or KDB), ST: New Signing( or Lukaku)
Analysis: In: Ivanovic, Ramires, Hazard, Oscar and New Striker
Out: Bosingwa, Mikel, Kalou, Bertrand and Drogba
Personally, I think that are 2013-14 team is way better than the starters that played Bayern in 2012. Except for Drogba. I think that even if we get Eto'o, he still won't be the Drogba we had back then.
Now for Bayern, there 2013 team as also improved with the signing Gotze and Thiago Alcantara. I won't redo with what I did with Chelsea, but I will do a resume, because I am lazy.
In: Badstuber, Alaba and Mandzukic
Out: Tymoshchuk, Cotento and Gomez
Bayern Ins are also an upgrade to there outs and the rest of there team is also good with Ribery, Schweinstagger, Lahm, Neuer, Robben (former chelsea player) and more.
So what do you think, who will win the Super Cup.
