SUPER CUP : Bayern Munich beat Chelsea on penalties after last gasp equaliser.

Bayern Munich grabbed hold of the UEFA Super Cup, winning on penalties after the two sides battled to a 2-2 draw in 120 minutes.

Fernando Torres had given Chelsea the lead early in the first half, but Frank Ribery scored to level the scores just after halftime.

Eden Hazard gave Chelsea a 2-1 lead early in extra-time, but Javi Martinez equalised in the 120th minute to send the match into a penalty shoot-out.

The first nine penalties were all converted, but Chelsea's Romelu Lukaku decided on a stutter-step with the final kick and keeper Manuel Neuer made a sprawling save to claim the trophy.

Bayern Munich win 5-4 on penalties.
