How much UEFA Super Cup prize money Liverpool have won after beating Chelsea in Istanbul
The tie went to penalties after the scores were tied 2-2 following extra-time before Tammy Abraham missed the decisive spot-kick in a 5-4 defeat.
The winners of tonight’s match have pocketed a tidy €4.5m (£4.2m) while the losers will go home with €3.5m (£3.2m) just for showing up in Istanbul.
The prize money is small in comparison to Liverpool’s Champions League triumph last season though that saw the Reds pocket €110m (£102m).
And it was the Blues who had a bright start saw an acrobatic effort from Mane blocked and a curling shot from Pedro fail to trouble Adrian at the other end. Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah broke clear in the 16th minute and tried a shot with the outside of his boot which was smartly saved by Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Pulisic thought he had made it two shortly afterwards, getting the better of Matip and Joe Gomez before finding the bottom corner, but his effort was ruled out for offside following a VAR referral.
Liverpool started fastest after the restart though as Sadio Mane bundled the ball home from close range immediately after the break.
Kepa pulled off a superb double save in the 75th minute, pushing away a deflected strike from Salah and reacting quickly to push Van Dijk’s follow-up onto the crossbar and clear via the left-hand post.
The Reds took the lead early in extra time and it was Mane again. Firmino broke clear down the left and cut the ball back for the forward to side-foot the ball into the top right-hand corner of the net.
Chelsea were awarded a penalty shortly afterwards when Adrian was adjudged to have brought down sub Tammy Abraham before Jorginho stroked the ball home from the spot to make it 2-2.
Adrian proved to be the hero in the shoot-out though as he saved the decisive spot-kick from Abraham.
