UEFA Super Cup Final: Real Madrid vs Manchester UnitedPublished August 8, 2017 by Sol FH
The Champions League Champions vs the Europa League Champions tonight at 19:45 GMT.
Both Real Madrid and Manchester United have been overseas recently, as a part of the Champions Cup. Real are coming off a victory on penalty shots against the MLS All-Stars, while United have had their own full schedule and Jose Mourinho is proud of what his team looks like at this early stage. Although strong, United are the underdogs tonight at the sold-out venue, Phillip II Arena in Skopje, Macedonia. The Super Cup will be the first real test of the year for both teams and it should be an action-packed evening.
United have been working and training hard for this match, "We are working for the Super Cup and it is our first objective," related Antonio Valencia. "We are motivated, we are working hard, we are concentrated and we are hopeful that we can achieve our goal of lifting the trophy in Macedonia."
This title would be a great way to kick-off the new season and the new Ronaldo-less Real Madrid are definitely not what they used to be. At the International Champions Cup, just a couple of weeks ago, Real and United drew 1-1. An amazing assist and goal by Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard respectively was enough to hold the Champions League champions at bay.
