UEFA Super Cup: The battle of Torres and Falcao

by Paddy Power Admin | July 31, 2012

Chelsea are perched on top of the Premier League with three wins from three games.

Belgian playmaker Eden Hazard has settled like a burger in James Corden’s belly and Fernando Torres looks like the man who once turned Nemanja Vidic into a bed-wetter.

Yes, things are looking rosy at the Bridge as Roberto Di Matteo’s side prepare for a Premier League time-out. Chelsea have a game against Atletico Madrid in Monaco today in the Uefa Super Cup – a competition for the winners of the Champions League and Europa League.

“It’s very, very important to play against my old team. It will be the first time I want Atletico to lose,” said Torres who joined Atletico age 11 and became their skipper at 19.

Chelsea are 5/4 favourites with a draw priced at 23/10 and an Atletico victory 21/10.

Although all eyes will be on Torres on his return, expect the Spaniards’ new goal-king Falcao to have a say on proceedings – he’s 6/1 to score first.
