Ace Football previews the UEFA Super Cup final between Real Madrid and Eintracht Frankfurt and offers stats, betting tips and odds.

Real Madrid and Eintracht Frankfurt meet in Helsinki on Wednesday for the 47th annual UEFA Super Cup final.

In this battle of European champions, only one can lift the trophy and claim the reported €5 million bonus. The runner-up will leave trophyless, but with €3.8 million as a consolation prize.

The odds-on favorite to win the final on Wednesday is Real Madrid. Los Blancos beat Liverpool in May to claim a record-extending 14th Champions League title, and are hungry for more. Eintracht, meanwhile, beat Rangers on penalties to win a second Europa League crown in the same month.

Latest Form – Real Madrid vs Eintracht Frankfurt

Los Blancos look to make more history

Real Madrid are the odds-on favorite but are yet to play a competitive match in 2022/23. Their first fixture of the La Liga campaign doesn’t begin until Sunday at Almeria.

The prospect of making a bit of history, however, should fire Carlo Ancelotti’s men up. If victorious in Helsinki, the club will equal AC Milan and Barcelona for a record of five UEFA Super Cup titles. They previously won this trophy in 2002, 2014, 2016, and 2017.

Eagles off to a nightmare start

Unlike their opponents, Eintracht have played two competitive matches so far. The first one was a 4-0 DFB-Pokal win over second division outfit Magdeburg on August 1. Four days later, however, they were crushed 6-1 by Bayern Munich in their opening game of the Bundesliga.

Oliver Glasner’s side had no answer for a Lewandowski-less Bayern and rarely threatened. They’ll need to improve drastically to stand a chance in their UEFA Super Cup debut.

Key Stats

  • Real Madrid have won the UEFA Super Cup four times (2002, 2014, 2016, 2017).
  • Eintracht Frankfurt have won six of their last ten matches against clubs from La Liga overall (D3 L1).
  • Real Madrid have won 34 of their 72 matches against German clubs (D14 L24).
  • The two teams have only played against each other once. That was in the 1960 European Champion Clubs’ Cup Final. Real Madrid won the match 7-3 at Hampden Park in Glasgow, Scotland.
  • The last four UEFA Super Cup finals went into extra time and beyond.

Team News – Real Madrid vs Eintracht Frankfurt

  • Real Madrid: Carlo Ancelotti looks to have a fully fit team. There are no missing players in the manager’s 25-man squad. Summer signings Antonio Rudiger and Aurelien Tchouameni will hope for a first competitive start.
  • Eintracht Frankfurt: Manager Oliver Glasner will be without Jerome Onguene and Aurelio Buta for the trip to Helsinki. Filip Kostic and Evan Ndicka may not feature. Both players currently face uncertain futures, making them doubts for the final.
