FC Bayern München have beaten Chelsea FC on penalties in the UEFA Super Cup in Prague. In a repeat of their dramatic final in Munich 15 months ago, the two sides needed spot kicks to separate them but it wasn’t to be for the 10-man Blues on this occasion, despite leading twice, including in extra-time.
Fernando Torres had given Chelsea the lead before Frank Ribery equalised. The Blues subsequently had Ramires sent off but nevertheless went back in front in extra time via Eden Hazard. But with seconds remaining Cech was powerless to prevent Martinez poking home from close-range to set up a dramatic penalty shootout.
