With the European football season set to return to our screens, the stage is set for an exhilarating match between the defending European champions Frankfurt and Real Madrid. The German side clinched the Europa League trophy with their opponents winning the UEFA champions league. This is a match where the two champions of Europe face off and this couldn’t be any more exciting. The site of the clash is Helsinki Finland and all roads lead there in this pre-season meetup decades in the making. Nonetheless, given how the Spanish side has been performing and the emergence of the next generation of stars in the squad, this won’t be a revenge match between the two teams and looks more like just a confirmation of what fans already know, that Real Madrid is now past the Ronaldo era and is looking more like the team to be not just in Spain but Europe as well.
Real Madrid vs Eintracht Frankfurt Match preview
The super cup is meant to test the top two teams of European football and this time round, Real play Frankfurt in Helsinki. A very tumultuous season saw the Spanish giants go through the wringer to get another European trophy to add to the club’s international success. Despite this, they face a familiar foe who fell at the hands of their star players way back in the 1960s With Playmaker Philip Kostic on his way to Juventus, the coach has to make do with what’s left of his side. Nothing says underdog than losing your star player whilst facing off against the reigning European champions. Drawing after the regulation isn’t a feat but winning the final of a European cup in a shootout is something in itself. That is what Frankfurt did to be crowned the Europa league champions. A 42-year-old drought of a European trophy was ended with that victory but winning here against the Spanish side might be biting off more than they can chew. In terms of player quality and depth, the Spanish giants are some ways ahead of their opponents and their coach has the advantage of having won this trophy before so experience points still go to the Spaniards.
Real Madrid vs. Eintracht Frankfurt Predictions.
It will be a difficult matchup for the German side considering their form against this team. Their last meeting with something to play for came more than half a century ago and the reunion might turn out the same way it did. Last time round, two players got a hat trick with one managing to net four. The Real side owes their success to the France international Benzema who can be credited with being the talent behind last season’s success. Despite this, some semblance of hope remains for the German side considering the match will be on neutral ground. The odds weigh heavily in favour of Real and this is the most likely outcome of the match. A win for Los Blanco’s looks like the most likely outcome of this meeting and most if not, all punters will wager on such a result.
