Real Madrid vs Man Utd: UEFA Super Cup Final Preview – Last Encounter, Key Men, Team News & More

?Real Madrid and Manchester United will go head-to-head in Macedonia on Tuesday evening to contest the UEFA Super Cup final in Skopje’s Filip II Arena.

Despite Red Devils’ midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan stating that the Europa League winners’ priority was success in the Premier League, the traditional face off between the holders of Europe’s biggest cup competitions is hardly going to be a dead rubber. 

A win for United especially would provide a huge morale boost before the return of English top-flight football.

Last Encounter

While the two teams have never met in the Super Cup, they have met 10 times in the European Cup/Champions League, with the most recent being Los Blancos’ victory at Old Trafford in 2013 in the Champions League Round of 16.

The two sides entered the game after goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Danny Welbeck had forced a draw at the Santiago Bernabeu in the first leg.

A stroke of luck ensured that United took the lead, with Madrid defender Sergio Ramos diverting into his own net just after halftime. However, a straight red card for Nani after a reckless high challenge saw the momentum swing and goals from Luka Modriand Ronaldo in the space of three minutes saw the Spanish giants advance to the Quarter finals.

Key Men

After scoring just 54 times in the Premier League last season and the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovi? leaving a gap in the Europa League holders’ front line, new signing Romelu Lukaku will be expected to bring some much-needed fire power to the Old Trafford side. 


With star men Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale lacking match fitness after injuries in pre-season, much will be expected of French striker Karim Benzemato lead the line for the Spanish champions.  

A player who is often shadowed by his teammates, the former Lyon man still netted 19 times last season.

Team News

Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane may risk starting Ronaldo despite a season opener against Barcelona five days later.

Last season’s breakthrough players Marco Asensio and Lucas Vásquez are expected to compete from the bench, while striker Borja Mayoral could feature after returning from a season-long loan at Wolfsburg. Star players Ramos, Marcelo, Modri? and Toni Kroos will play.

Marco Asensio

After playing in a friendly win against Sampdoria last Wednesday, new signing Nemanja Mati? should be in contention to make his United debut in Macedonia.

The Red Devils are also expected to start in a 3-5-2 formation, which would mean starts for Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian at wing-back and a debut for Victor Lindelöf in defence. Lukaku will start up front.

Probable Line-ups

Real Madrid (4-3-3):Navas; Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Bale, Benzema, Ronaldo

Man Utd (3-5-2):De Gea; Lindelöf, Smalling, Blind; Valencia, Herrera, Mati?, Pogba, Darmian; Mkhitaryan, Lukaku


The arrival of Mati? may allow us to see Paul Pogba play with more freedom and with Lukaku in the side we may see a different performance from United compared to what we saw last year.

However, even if Ronaldo and Bale do not start the Spanish giants will be tough to beat. If Modri? and Kroos can dominate the midfield then we could have a very tight game on our hands.
