The competition pits the winners of two of UEFA’s premier competitions – the Champions League and Europa League – against each other in a one-off final which serves as a curtain-raiser to the new European football season.
The Blues have enjoyed an unbeaten pre-season so far and will be looking to start the campaign in perfect fashion by adding the Super Cup trophy to the Champions League trophy they won in May.
However, standing in the way are Unai Emery’s impressive Spanish outfit Villarreal.
The Spaniards will be looking to take another Premier League scalp after defeating Manchester United in a pulsating Europa League final penalty shoot out back in May.
Former Arsenal boss Emery has enjoyed a memorable first year in charge at Estadio de la Cerámica, breaking the club record of 18 matches unbeaten as well as winning the club’s first major European trophy.
The pre-season trophy final will be held on British soil, with Belfast's Windsor Park chosen as the venue for tonight’s showpiece final.
