UEFA Super Cup: Atletico Madrid- Chelsea
This is being played in Monaco, Atletico won here two years ago defeating Inter 2-0 and whilst both teams have started the season well, I see the Spanish club as having the greater desire tonight and this is a real chance for Radamel Falcao to impress once more on a big stage and he seems to thrive on those, he has 21 goals in his last 22 starts for club and country and was said to be an early summer target for the Blues. He will definitely not want to be playing second fiddle to Eden Hazard or Atletico former favourite son Fernando Torres, he will fancy his chances against a Chelsea backline missing John Terry. Falcao has an amazing record in general, but especially against the bigger clubs, he scored in his last start against Real and in both league games with Barce, twice in both the Europa league semi at Valencia and final with Bilbao, six combined in the semis and final of the same competition the previous year for Porto. I would have to suggest that he will fire Atletico home tonight so odds against for them off level ball looks ok, as does 2.875 for Falcao to score at anytime, or the very tempting 13.0 for him to score two or more goals.
After 18 minues , Atletico lead 2-0 with Falcao having scored both goals !
