The traditional Community Shield in England involves the winner of the Premier League against the FA Cup winner.
The season opener this year involves Liverpool after their triumph in the Premier League against FA Cup winners Arsenal. Both teams have a rich pedigree in this match with 15 Community Shield titles apiece.
Saturday 29 August 2020
The match will take place at an empty Wembley Stadium with kick-off at 5.30PM.
Both teams will be missing key personnel with Trent Alexander-Arnold missing for Liverpool with Jordan Henderson also likely to miss out.
Arsenal have been ravaged defensively with four front-line players from their backline set to miss out.
With the late finish to last season, both sides could be short on preparation and match fitness, but with two star-studded squads out to show their skills and earn some early silverware, you can expect some fireworks in this one.
Both teams love to attack and goals could be the order of the day, even if finishing isn’t always at its sharpest this early in the season.
Betting prediction: Liverpool to win
