This clash between continental champions is, perhaps rightly, being treated as something of an afterthought back in England, but for Jurgen Klopp and Frank Lampard, silverware will be the goal in Turkey.
The two managers experienced contrasting fortunes at the start of the domestic calendar, as Liverpool thrashed Norwich 4-1 at Anfield, while Chelsea suffered a humiliating 4-0 defeat at the hands of Man United on Sunday; a major setback less than 72 hours before kickoff at Besiktas Park.
Starting the season with a trophy lift would certainly be symbolic for the Reds, if nothing else, and they will be desperate to do so after 90 minutes – and perhaps penalties – in Istanbul.
