After winning the Champions League and Europa League last season, Chelsea and Villarreal will try to start a new European campaign with the Supercup, which will take place this Wednesday from 7 pm.
Mendy, who was one of the architects of the triumphant journey of the Blues in the Champions League, will seek, no doubt, to repeat this performance to keep his place as No. 1 goalkeeper of the English club.
He could face his compatriot and former partner at Stade de Reims, new recruit of Unai Emery’s team, Boulaye Dia. The striker of the Lions is looking for a starting place in Villarreal.
