UEFA SUPER CUP

UEFA Super Cup teams Liverpool and Chelsea were paid €3.5m (£3.3m) each for their participation according to LiveSoccer TV.

It was also revealed that Super Cup champions Liverpool were paid an extra €1m (£940,000).

Liverpool added the UEFA Super Cup title to their Champions League title after they defeated Chelsea on penalties.

The two Premier League sides shared a four-goal thriller thus leading to the penalty shootout which ended in a 5-4 win for the Reds.

Europa League champions Chelsea took the lead through French World Cup winner Olivier Giroud in the first half and his strike was enough to give the Blues a first half advantage.

The advantage didn’t last for a long time at the start of the second half after Liverpool forward Sadio Mane levelled proceedings for the Champions League title holders off an assist from Roberto Firmino who had come in as an halftime substitute for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Extra time was needed after two sides failed to add to their tally until the end of 90 minutes.

Mane added a second goal for Liverpool in added time before Chelsea equalised from the spot through Jorginho after substitute Tammy Abraham was brought down in the Reds box.

Both sides ended extra time 2-2 before Tammy Abraham missed his penalty during the shootout to give Liverpool the Super Cup title.
