Real Madrid and Eintracht Frankfurt will battle for the 2022 UEFA European Supercup title tonight at the Helsinki Olympic Stadium in Finland. This will be Madrid’s first official match of the season, but Eintracht’s third, meaning that the German side will likely have better conditioning for this game.
Coach Carlo Ancelotti announced during his media appearances that he will deploy the same starting lineup he used in the past Champions League Final against Liverpool, with Alaba and Militao as center-backs, Mendy on the left side of the defensive line and Fede Valverde on the right wing. New signings Aurelien Tchouameni and Antonio Rudiger will have to wait for their opportunity to start, and the same can be said about Rodrygo and Camavinga.
All things considered, Real Madrid should be the heavy favorites to win the game and conquer the title, something which would give the team a solid confidence boost ahead of La Liga’s opener against Almeria next Sunday.
