Who is your favorite to win the trophy? Is it Chelsea or Villarreal?Meanwhile, it has been confirmed that Andreas Christensen will miss the final due to an injury he sustained at the just concluded 2020 UEFA European football championship.Andreas Christensen, who was pulled out of Denmark’s semi-final game against England because of a hamstring injury is expected to return on the 14th of August and thus, would have to miss the final against Villarreal.This therefore means that Chelsea would be without the Denmark defender for the Super Cup final and we all know Tuchel wont be happy about this.

With Christensen unavailable, Thomas Tuchel will be left with Thaigo Silva, Zouma and Antonio Rudigar for selection.
