The Super Cup Final is here and we have Real Madrid taking on Eintracht Frankfurt in the battle for the first bit of European silverware this campaign. Here we have how to watch the match, team news, head-to-head, odds, our prediction and everything else you need to know.
The two champions of the major European trophies face off today in a one-off game to become Super Cup winners. Real Madrid won last year’s Champions League after they defeated Liverpool in the final 1-0, thanks to a goal from Brazilian winger Vinicius Jr.
Frankfurt on the other hand defeated Rangers in what was a tense Europa League final that made it all the way to penalties. Aaron Ramsay was the unfortunate culprit to miss his spot-kick and Frankfurt dispatched all theirs – making them champions.
This should be a great game between two great sides, so let’s get into it. Here’s everything you need to know about Real Madrid vs Frankfurt in the Super Cup.
Real Madrid vs Frankfurt will take place on Wednesday 10th August 2022 at the Helsingin Olympiastadion, Helsinki. The match will start at 8:00 pm UK time.

Head to Head

Real Madrid emerged 7 – 3 victors in the 1959/60 European Cup Final. Can they do the same here and beat Frankfurt to the silverware?
The betting markets have Real Madrid as the favourites for this match.
- Real Madrid to win: 4/9
- Draw: 15/4
- Frankfurt to win: 19/4
We expect a fair few goals in this game, given the attacking intent of both sides – however, Real Madrid’s stacked side should have the firepower to overcome the Europa League winners.
Prediction: Real Madrid 3 – 1 Frankfurt
