Real Madrid as the champion of the European Champions League will face Atletico Madrid who are the next season’s Europa League winners in the European Super Cup. The match between them will be held next Thursday morning, 16 August 2018 at A. Le Coq Arena, Tallin, Estonia.
The defending champion of European Champions League, Real Madrid on paper are more favored to win in this match. But, there have been some changes in Los Blancos’ squad this summer, the first coming of new manager, Julen Lopetegui, while the second is the departure of their main star over the past few years, Cristiano Ronaldo. But Madrid still remain Real Madrid and they still remain dangerous without Ronaldo.
Atletico Madrid on the other hand is also known as one of the best defense teams in Europe at this moment. Why? Because they have Diego Costa who joined them in the winter transfer market this January. Will Diego Simeone’s team manage to break Madrid’s streak in this year’s European Super Cup?
