Bayern Muenchen v Chelsea - UEFA Super Cup

Romelu Lukaku may be feeling a little low after his saved spot kick handed Bayern Munich victory in Friday night’s Super Cup, but he has received support from his former teammate.

The Belgian international saw his effort saved by Manuel Neuer in a cracking contest that looked like going Chelsea’s way until a dramatic late goal forced extra time and subsequent shoot-out.

Lukaku was the fall guy, but Didier Drogba was quick to offer his support to the Belgian international on Instagram.

Drogba scored the winning penalty against Bayern in 2012 and hopes that the striker will learn from his mistake, just as he did after a red card against Man Utd in Moscow in 2008.
