Bayern Munich have defeated Chelsea in the European Super Cup on penalties.

Chelsea thought they had handed Jose Mourinho a first trophy of his second spell as boss when Eden Hazard netted in extra time after Franck Ribery had cancelled out Fernando Torres' opener.

The dismissal of Ramires for a second bookable offence left the Blues exposed and Javi Martinez tucked in with the final kick of an astonishing game to make it 2-2, forcing penalties.

The 2012 European Cup final between the sides had been decided on spot-kicks in Chelsea's favour and on this occasion, shooting towards the boisterous Bayern end, substitute Romelu Lukaku saw his effort saved as the Germans claimed a 5-4 shootout success.

It denied Mourinho a first European Super Cup and a maiden trophy of his second spell at Stamford Bridge.
