UEFA Super Cup time, Real Madrid vs Eintracht Frankfurt, live stream and betting oddsv
When Real Madrid take on German club Eintracht Frankfurt in Helsinki for the 2022 title, they will be on track to tie the European Super Cup winning record. It will be Madrid’s fifth victory in the summer’s flagship European competition, with the Champions League winners facing off against the Europa League winners.
But Eintracht Frankfurt will look to spoil Madrid’s party, as they did with other European powerhouses in the Europa League trophy last season. The Bundesliga side clinched a one-time Super Cup berth by beating another Spanish giant, Barcelona, to join England’s West Ham and Scotland’s Rangers in the Europa League.
Eintracht Frankfurt were successful in European competition last season, despite their poor performance in the Bundesliga standings, finishing 11th. Bayern Munich’s 6-1 defeat in the Bundesliga opener last weekend did not bode well for Eintracht supporters, but they are hopeful that the team can continue to make a difference on the continental stage.
Real Madrid opened their La Liga season against Almeria on Sunday, but they have already played three high-level friendlies before the Super Cup. Carlo Ancelotti’s side had a mixed run in those games, culminating in a 2-0 victory over eternal Italian rivals Juventus.

Real Madrid vs Eintracht Eintracht Frankfurt Lineup and Team News
Carlo Ancelotti has built up a solid starting line-up over the past year and that is unlikely to change for this European Super Cup game. Karim Benzema missed his first game of the preseason due to an extended summer break, but he is back and ready to lead.
Despite Aurelian Chuameni’s big-money arrival this summer, Casemiro will lose out at centre-back at this time, and Joameni will have the opportunity to impress from the bench.
In the starting lineup, Federico Valverde is at the top of the right flank, as he did in pre-season and late last year, although Marco Asensio has been outstanding in this summer’s pre-season , and can gain time on that flank.
Real Madrid starting lineup (4-3-3, right to left): Courtois (TG) – Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy Modric, Casemiro, Kroos – Valverde, Benzema, Vinicius Jr.
The biggest question for Frankfurt this week is the status of playmaker Filip Kostic, who played a major role in last season’s European success. He has been linked with a move to Italian club Juventus, according to reports. Therefore, he did not appear in the Frankfurt team.
Korstic was replaced by German midfielder Christopher Lentz, while young winger Faried Alidou, a 21-year-old Germany youth international who joined him in pre-season after his Hamburg contract expired, Prepare to impress on the bench.
Eintracht newcomer Mario Gotze wants to take over game management from Kostic in the long term. The former Germany World Cup hero arrived in the current transfer window from Dutch club PSV Eindhoven, where he has restarted his career for the past two seasons. Gotze started on the bench despite a loss to Bayern at the weekend, with Japan international Daiichi Kamada favoured from the start.
Look for 23-year-old Randal Kolo Muani to impress the bench as starting forward Rafael Borre struggles. The versatile France youth international was one of the few bright spots in Eintracht Frankfurt’s 6-1 win over Bayern Munich last weekend, scoring the only goal.
Frankfurt starting lineup (3-4-2-1, right to left): Trapp (TG) – Toure, Tuta, Ndika – Knauf, Rod, Sof, Lenz – – Lindstrom, Kamada – Bol.
Real Madrid vs Eintracht Frankfurt Betting Picks and Predictions
Real Madrid rely on the presence of talismanic striker Karim Benzema to score goals, as evidenced by three games last season. The Frenchman has been in full force since returning from an extended summer break and Real benefited greatly when he returned to the pitch.
Meanwhile, Frankfurt conceded six goals against Bayern Munich last weekend, while the departure of now-retired Austrian centre-back Martin Hinteregger has left a void that Armami Toure is trying to fill. The Frankfurters’ league struggles last season were not reflected in their Europa League schedule, but this is a new season.
These two teams seem to have an innate tendency to score goals, and the Super Bowl seems to be a goal-ready game. Only one team has kept a clean sheet in the last 10 single knockout games: Real Madrid’s 2-0 win over Sevilla in 2014. The odds also point to the number of goals.
- Hint: Both teams score (DraftKings -139)
- Prediction: Real Madrid 3:1 Frankfurt
