Liverpool will contest the 2019 UEFA Super Cup against Chelsea in Istanbul on August 14 after winning the Champions League.

The Reds defeated Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in Madrid on Saturday to secure their place in the one-off fixture, hosted at Besiktas Park later this year.

It will be the club’s first participation in the spectacle since 2005, when Rafael Benitez's side beat CSKA Moscow 3-1 in Monaco.

Chelsea, meanwhile, booked their spot in the match by beating Arsenal 4-1 in the Europa League final earlier this week.
