The way Real’s players climbed to the top of Europe last season is truly incredible. They beat PSG, Chelsea, Manchester City, and Liverpool and that was definitely one of the toughest paths to the trophy ever. In every match, except for the final one, they were losing in some part of the clash and managed to win in an unusual way.
In addition to the European title, they were the best in the domestic championship as well, thus establishing coach Carlo Ancelotti as one of the greatest coaches of all time. Now his players are close to another trophy and are big favorites ahead of the match.
Real Madrid signed two new players this summer. Midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni arrived from Monaco, while the defensive line was further strengthened by former Chelsea center-back Antonio Rudiger.
All the players are healthy before the upcoming clash, so it remains to be seen if Carlo Ancelotti will give the new players a chance to play or opt for the same 11 players from last season.
Eintracht Frankfurt won the Europa League last season after defeating Rangers on penalties in the final. In this way, they corrected the bad impression from the Bundesliga, which they finished in a low 11th place.
The new season in the domestic competition did not start well for the team from Frankfurt. In the opening match, they were humiliated by Bayern Munich 1-6 at their stadium, and the Bavarians led 5-0 after the first half.
Coach Oliver Glasner substituted three important players already after 45 minutes, in order to spare them additional efforts and so that these players could welcome the duel with Real Madrid as fresh as possible. Mario Gotze, Lucas Alario, and the young Jens Petter Hauge arrived at the club this summer, and they should make the attacking part of the team more dangerous. However, it was announced on Tuesday that last season’s best player Filip Kostic became the new acquisition of Juventus.
These two teams have not met in European competition since 1960, when they played the final of the then European Cup, which is the forerunner of today’s Champions League. Real was dominant and won 7-3, and then the legends of Madrid and European football, Alfredo di Stefano and Ferenc Puskas shone, scoring all seven goals.
Real Madrid (4-3-3): Courtois; Mendy, Alaba, Militao, Carvajal; Casemiro, Modric, Kroos; Valverde, Vinicius Junior, Benzema
Eintracht Frankfurt (3-4-2-1): Trapp; Toure, Tuta, N’Dicka; Knauff, Sow, Rode, Lenz; Kamada, Gotze; Borre
In nine of the last ten games of the UEFA Super Cup, both teams scored at least one goal, and we believe that this tradition will continue this year. We expect a dynamic match in which the defensive intensity will not be too high and we believe that no goalkeeper will save his net for the entire 90 minutes.
Prediction: Both Teams To Score – Yes
