Football: Bayern and Chelsea all set for grudge match
PRAGUE (AFP) - Champions League winners Bayern Munich and Europa League holders Chelsea meet in the European Super Cup on Friday with the usually relaxed atmosphere surrounding the match spiced up as there are several scores to be settled.
Bayern still feel they should have won the Champions League a year earlier only to be beaten by Chelsea on penalties - even worse for the Germans was it came at their stadium, the Allianz Arena.
Chelsea's manager at the time Roberto di Matteo is no longer there - he was sacked only a few months later and his replacement Rafael Benitez salvaged something from the season in landing the Europa League.
The present incumbent Jose Mourinho - Benitez' spell as caretaker manager ended at the end of last season - will be eager to put one over Bayern's coach Pep Guardiola, his nemesis from his days in Spain.
