Chelsea midfielder Ramires looking to claim UEFA Super Cup
Chelsea midfielder Ramires is looking to claim the UEFA Super Cup by beating Atlético Madrid this evening.
The Blues, who have not lost against Spanish opposition in 14 competitive matches, will face the Europa League winners at Monaco's Stade Louis II Stadium tonight.
Ramires will start on the right wing for the 2012 Champions League winners, who beat Bayern Munich in the final, and remains hopeful of his side claiming another title.
The 25-year-old said: "Winning the Super Cup will be a continuation of a victorious cycle that began with the Champions League and ending with the World Clubs at the end of the year.
"Atlético are a great team that deserve to be present tonight but hopefully we will overcome them and come back with the title."
Chelsea have made an impressive start to the season with three Premier League wins in three games and Ramires has been an inexhaustible force in midfield.
The number 7, who moved to Stamford Bridge on a four-year contract in 2010, missed the Champions League final through suspension but was highly influential throughout the competition.
Ramires was back in action for the Seleção earlier this month after being overlooked by coach Mano Menezes for an entire year.
Fellow Brazilians David Luiz, who also starts, and new signing Oscar could feature for Chelsea. Filipe Luís and João Miranda are set to start for Atlético, with Diego Costa named amongst the substitutes.
