The Champions League and Europa League winners lock horns for the first European trophy of the new season.

Real Madrid will face Eintracht Frankfurt in the UEFA Super Cup clash.

An incredible 2021-22 season saw Real Madrid claim both La Liga and Champions League titles. The Blancos will face their German opponents with the same XI that won the European trophy back in May.

Thibaut Courtois plays behind a four-man defensive line of Ferland Mendy, David Alaba, Eder Militao, and Dani Carvajal.

Toni Kroos, Casemiro, and Luka Modric form Real Madrid’s well-known midfield unit, while Vinicius Junior and Federico Valverde play alongside Karim Benzema upfront.

Let’s take a look at the two side’s lineups for the Super Cup game.
