The Red team started off better and imposed its hierarchy on the playing field by owning the ball and creating several dangerous situations. But we had to wait to find the first situation, which arrived after 15 minutes Mohammed Salah escaped from the right to the back of his marker and made him look Cap.
In 22 minutes, at Chelsea it had its own when, after a good collective game, Pedro jumped to the left and finished the cross and broke the barrier. A few minutes later, Oudirud The Chilean also scared him Liverpool, but the ball went away.
Opening the scoreboard reached 36 minutes when Pulisic, with a dominant ball, facing left to right and throwing a sensational diagonal accessory to Oudirud. The French escaped and defined the left for 1 to 0.
French Stephanie Frapart, which led the definition of the Women's World Cup between the United States and the Netherlands, was selected by UEFA to host the competition for the first time. "I'm happy because we can be a part of this historic moment. It is a very good, intelligent decision, "said Jürgen Klopp, coach of the Reds in the pre-match.
Apart from the novelty of having Frapart as a referee, an attractive match is expected between the two teams that dominated the biggest European football matches and will again play a definitive match between the two Premier League clubs, as happened with the Champions League final in Wanda Metropolitano. – Liverpool's rival was Tottenham Hotspur's Mauricio Pocetino – and with the deciding match played at the Olympic Stadium in Baku in Azerbaijan – Chelsea beat Arsenal.
The present of both teams is incomparable. On one side will be those led by Klopp, who arrive as favorites to retain a new trophy. At the start of the Premier League, Liverpool smoothly beat Norwich City 4-1, but lost one of the pieces to the German coach: Brazilian Alison, goalkeeper for Anfield, He suffered discomfort took him off the field for several weeks. Instead will be Adrian San Miguel, the Spanish goalkeeper who arrived in England from Betis, Spain.
The premiere of Lampard, the historic Chelsea captain, as coach of the Blues was not the best. A visit to Old Trafford to play against Manchester United suffered a tough defeat: 0-4 against the Red Devils. Without the option to sign sanctions imposed by FIFA, the London team will be betting on the base they had last season, waiting for Olivier Giroud, the big offensive lineman, to improve their performance.
