Bayern win dramatic UEFA Super Cup

Bayern Munich beat 10-man Chelsea on penalties to lift the Uefa Super Cup and gain a measure of revenge for their 2012 Champions League final defeat.

Chelsea came within seconds of victory in extra time but Javi Martinez took the game to penalties with the last kick of the game.

Fernando Torres had given Chelsea the lead before Franck Ribery equalised.

Eden Hazard restored Chelsea’s lead despite Ramires’ dismissal but Romelu Lukaku missed the decisive spot-kick.

Even in defeat, this was a gritty and courageous performance typical of a Jose Mourinho side, who played the final 40 minutes with 10 men. That they came within seconds of lifting the first trophy of their manager’s second spell at Stamford Bridge made defeat all the more painful.
