In the European Super Cup, the winners of the Champions Cup/Champions League have won 26 of the previous 46 editions.
What an incredible return of Tuta! (0-0)
We thought that Real’s goal was ready after this overflow from Valverde, then this subtle service from Benzema is very skilful. Served in an ideal position in the box, Vinicius perfectly spreads his foot to fool Trapp, but Tuta appears out of nowhere to take the ball down the line from him! Incredible !
Courtois already imperial! (0-0)
There are beginning to be spaces in the Real defense and Frankfurt is taking advantage of them. Borré takes the Kamada axis deep, who advances inside the area and shoots a low shot from the left that Courtois leaves with a decisive dunk!
Ferland Mendy is Brazil
What a gesture and what composure from Mendy, who was pressured by two opponents near his corner post but got away with a perfect little jumper. The Germans are getting bolder, and Lindstrom, served but offside, had unleashed a strong first blow on Courtois.
Kroos does not accurately walk, it is rare
First corner of the game for Real and Kroos on the right. It is a bit long, and the ball does not find a partner.
Two defenses in place
Both teams are very well organized tactically and are locked in at the moment. Vinicius is the Madrid player who most worries his rivals.
Valverde in his standards
Good return from Valverde in his half of the field while Frankfurt displayed a nice counter. As at the end of last season, the Uruguayan continues to play his role as a right winger in the offensive phase, but he does not hesitate to sink very low if necessary.
Eintracht is not cold to the eyes
The people from Madrid keep the ball in the middle against the fearless Germans who dare to press high. They manage to recover for their first phase of possession.
Let’s go to Helsinki! (0-0)
It was the Germans, in black, who kicked off this European Super Cup! The people of Madrid wear white.
Kick-off is imminent!
The atmosphere is beautiful at the Olympiastadion in Helsinki, where the two teams make their appearance on the Finnish turf accompanied by the referee of the match, the Englishman Michael Oliver.
A “little hand” or a big scoop?
Real Madrid, winner of their 14th C1 on May 28 against Liverpool, will try to win their fifth European Super Cup after those of 2002, 2014, 2016 and 2017. It would be the first for Frankfurt, who won the Europa League final against Glasgow Rangers. The German team thus returns to the final phase of the Champions League for the first time since 1960.
Former Nantes player Kolo Muani on the bench
As during the slap received against Bayern last weekend in the Bundesliga (6-1), the former Nantes player Kolo Muani is a substitute. Leaving for Juventus, Kostic is absent from the German team.
Trapp – Touré, Tuta, N’Dicka – Knauff, Sow, Rode, Lenz – Kamada, Lindstrom – Borré.
Why do so many fans travel from Frankfurt?
Some of the hottest fans in Europe, one of the richest cities in Germany, is part of the reason Frankfurt fans still travel in large numbers across Europe.
The composition of the Real, with Tchouaméni and Camavinga on the bench
Carlo Ancelotti has decided to place Federico Valverde on the right wing to accompany Karim Benzema and Vinicius in attack. On the bench are Aurélien Tchouaméni and Eduardo Camavinga.
The composition of Royal: Courtois – Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy – Kroos, Casemiro, Modric – Valverde, Benzema, Vinicius.
“Semi-automatic” offside, how does it work?
Tonight’s match will be the first in which the referees use the ‘automatic offside’ technology, which will later be used in the Champions League and the 2022 World Cup. Explanations.
The first steps of Tchouaméni
Expected on the bench at the start of the game, Aurélien Tchouaméni is preparing to make his debut in an official match with Real Madrid, which he arrived at this summer for around 100 million euros.
Why is the Super Cup played in Helsinki?
Since 2013, the match between the winner of the Champions League and the winner of the Europa League has been played every summer in a different country. The last edition, won by Chelsea against Villarreal (1-1, record 6 to 5), took place in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Tbilisi (Georgia), Trondheim (Norway), Skopje (North Macedonia) or Tallinn (Estonia) have also recently been entitled to this privilege.
A possibly historic meeting for Real
In a possible repeat of their last official confrontation, in the C1 final of 1960 (Madrid’s victory by 7-3), Real Madrid can beat Frankfurt this Wednesday afternoon (9:00 p.m.), in the Super Cup of Europe, a historic coronation in many ways.
start at 9pm
