Our prediction for this Champions League Europa Conference League match:
All eyes will be on Helsinki Olympic Stadium when Real Madrid and Eintracht Frankfurt square off against each other in the UEFA Super Cup. Los Blancos defeated Juventus 2-0 in their last warm-up game, meaning that they are high on spirits ahead of Wednesday’s showdown, but die Adler should not be written off just yet. Summer signings Antonio Rudiger and Aurelien Tchouameni are likely to make their official Real Madrid debuts against Eintracht, while Carlo Ancelotti has no fresh injury worries ahead of the title game.
The Bundesliga outfit, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 6-1 loss to Bayern Munich, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. Hrvoje Smolcic is back from the domestic ban, while both Buta and Onguene should miss out with injuries for the nominal visitors. Back in 1960 Real Madrid and Eintracht faced each other in the European Cup final, with the Spanish giants winning the match 7-3.
