How to watch Real Madrid vs Eintracht Frankfurt in the UEFA Super Cup live: The Champions League winners take on the Europa League winners as Madrid battle Frankfurt. Here’s how to watch live in the UK.
Some fans in the UK would have been hopeful of an all-English Super Cup showdown with Liverpool taking on West Ham. However, Madrid knocked off Liverpool in the Champions League final (much to the delight of most English fans), and Frankfurt ended the Hammers’ dreams of European glory at the semi-final stage.
14-time European Cup/Champions League winners Real Madrid will be looking to add even more silverware to the collection as they bid for a fifth UEFA Super League trophy, having won the one-off game in 2002, 2014, 2016 and 2017.
It hasn’t been a good start to the Bundesliga campaign for tonight’s opponents Frankfurt, who lost their opening fixture 6-1 to the ever impressive Bayern Munich. The La Liga season is yet to kick off, so this will be Real’s first competitive game of the 2022/23 season, which will be interrupted by the World Cup.
The German side might be a little more match ready, but it would be a big surprise if they were lifting the Super Cup at the end of the night.
