Liverpool icons Jamie Carragher and Michael Owen share throwback Super Cup snaps

Premiership Picks

The Reds have now officially landed in Istanbul and are gearing up for a huge clash at Besiktas Park.

Of course, Liverpool know this city quite well as they have experienced past success here, but now a slightly different challenge awaits them in the form of the UEFA Super Cup.

This annual clash pits the two champions of Europe against each other to determine who the real king actually is.

Liverpool are entering the bout as the winners of the Champions League, with Chelsea as the Europa League winners. The clash will kick-off at 8pm this evening.

And as we’re getting ever closer to the start of the match, both Jamie Carragher and Michael Owen, former Liverpool stars, have taken to Instagram to share their support for the Reds.

Let’s hope for a similar result tonight @liverpoolfc

Both icons have posted images of Liverpool’s past success in the competition.

If the Reds win against Chelsea tonight, that would be their fourth win overall with the last three coming in 1977, 2001 and 2005 respectively.

Achieving that would also see them equal Real Madrid’s tally.
