UEFA Super Cup
The UEFA Super Cup is one of the most eagerly-awaited fixtures of the European season. It features the winners of UEFA’s two most important club competitions – the Champions League and Europa League – meeting each other.
The Super Cup used to be held over two legs, but since 1997 it’s been played as a single-game final and if there’s a draw at the end of 90 minutes extra time is played and a penalty shoot-out is required to determine the winner.
In this game, Real Madrid will seek a fifth UEFA Super Cup win against Eintracht Frankfurt of Germany. This will be the German side’s first appearance in a Super Cup and they’ll be looking to tie the Spanish giants for most wins of all time.
