The first major test of the season is upon as Real Madrid take on Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup, set to take place in Estonia.

Our lovely writers at Managing Madrid have already covered most aspects of this game in prior posts like this one, and this one, and this one. So, there isn’t much left to say other than LET’S DO THIS.

We would all love to take this trophy home today, but in addition it is another chance for our men in white to gain their fitness before the season kicks off this weekend, and for J-Lo to get an idea of what he is really working with competitively. Lastly, let’s pray to the old gods and the new (and all seven kingdoms) that we end the game with no additional injuries.

Enjoy the match, behave and be nice, and let’s hopefully celebrate together when it’s all over. HALA MADRID!
