Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourihno will both look to win their first trophies at their present clubs when they face one another on 30th August in UEFA Super Cup Clash. Bayern Munich won the greatest title in club football last season beating Borrusia Dortmund, under manager Jupp Heynckes. Guardiola, who was declared the replacement of Heynckes in 2013 January, added young stars Thiago Alcantara and Mario Gotze to bolster his team.

Guardiola is set for a vengeance with Mourihno who led Real Madrid to seize Spanish honours from Pep’s Barcelona. The two sides clash will also be an interesting match to watch as the Bavarians look to get back on Chelsea who took away Champions League trophy in the tie-breaker of 2011/12 season’s Champions League, after getting a late an undeserved equaliser.

With both the teams having extra-ordinarily talented players to offer, Jose Mourihno’s Chelsea seems to have an advantage with only David Luiz expected to miss the match while Guardiola’s Bayern will be without Bastian Schweinsteiger (ankle),Javi Martinez (abdominal injury) ,Thiago and Holger Badstuber (both knee) in the tie. Bayern Munich will also become the first German side to win this silverware, if they succeed to defeat the ‘Special One’ Jose Mourihno.
