The two heavyweights from the Spanish capital will face off against each other in the Europa Super Cup Final, with Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid set to battle off at the A. Le Coq Arena in Tallin, Estonia. The current Champions League winners, Los Blancos, who have won three consecutive titles in the most prestigious club competition at the “old continent,” are hoping to start a life without Cristiano Ronaldo winning the prominent trophy against the arch-rivals. Although the Portuguese superstar left Santiago Bernabeu, Florentino Perez was not interested in making notable transfers this summer, with only Vinicius Junior unveiled as a new player of the most successful European club. After Zinedine Zidane’s decision to leave Real Madrid, Julen Lopetegui took charge of the team, and he managed to achieve three successive wins against Juventus, Roma, and AC Milan following a 2-1 defeat to Manchester United in his premier match on Los Merengues’ bench. On the other hand, Los Colchoneros managed to keep Antoine Griezmann and Diego Godin despite severe pressure from Barcelona and the Red Devils, adding a few significant players to Diego Simeone’s roster, with the names of Thomas Lemar and Gelson Martins emerging as the most important ones. The Europa League winners started the preparation period with a win over Arsenal after a penalty-shoot-out after which they lost to Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan, while their only win was the one against Cagliari.
Alvaro Odriozola and Nacho Fernandez are both expected to skip the match for Real Madrid, while Atletico should be at full strength.
