Victory in Istanbul, which is live on talkSPORT, will go some way to making amends for the setback at Old Trafford.

The Chelsea boss played in two of these fixtures for the club as a player in both 2012 and 2013 and believes a win here will be crucial for his side.

“I know first-hand because we lost two of these finals,” said Lampard.

“We lost to Atletico Madrid in poor circumstances (in 2012) and we were far, far off and gave them the Super Cup.

“We were unfortunate to lose to Bayern Munich (in 2013). When you work hard to get into this game between two champions, it is important that at a club like Chelsea we give everything to win it.

“It does mean something. It means something to us as a club because it is another trophy.

“It means something to us as a club because it is as another trophy. It also would be a really nice start personally but, more than that, it would be a really good feeling for the players with the season coming up that we can compete with Liverpool. Certainly, we understand the importance.”
