Goalkeeper Adrian came out on top as he successfully denied Tammy Abraham’s penalty kick to give Liverpool a 5-4 lead in the penalty shootout, winning the UEFA Super Cup after a 2-2 tie in Istanbul.

All penalties were successfully completed before Mohamed Salah took Liverpool’s fifth kick on the Besiktas site. Abraham’s replacement later saw his kick saved by Adrian, a newly signed player in the summer and a chance to play in the wake of Allison Becker’s injury.

It was Liverpool’s fourth win of the match, the last time in 2005 following the previous Champions League victory, also in Istanbul.

They have now collected 13 European championships, and are hoping to return to Istanbul for the Champions League final this season.

Sadio Mane emerged the hero of Liverpool in the actual game when it erased Chelsea’s Olivier Giroud side to drag the match into extra time.

Then Mane put Jurgen Klopp’s side ahead in the 95th minute before referee Stephanie Frappart gave Chelsea a penalty kick after Abraham dropped Adrian. Jorginho cleared a kick to tie Liverpool 2-2.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard once again missed the chance to win the UEFA Super Cup, previously twice as a player including losing a penalty to Bayern Munich in 2013.
