Read full match report: Real Madrid beats Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0 to clinch UEFA Super Cup
FULL MATCH HIGHLIGHTS
FULL TIME! (Real Madrid 2-0 Eintracht Frankfurt)- Real Madrid wins its first silverware of the season after beating Eintracht Frankfurt in the UEFA Super Cup final.
Rodrygo shoots at goal from an extremely tight angle. Trapp lets the ball go as it hits the side-netting.
Three minutes added on!
The Frankfurt players are not even chasing the ball now. This has not been a thrashing by any means but Madrid’s quality has been too much for the Germans to deal with.
Madrid triple change: IN- Dani Ceballos, Aurelien Tchouameni and Antonio Rudiger OUT- Vinicius Jr, toni Kroos and Dani Carvajal.
Kolo Muani tries to cross the ball from the right but Madrid’s defence sharp as ever. Nothing is working for Frankfurt right now.
Real Madrid Sub: IN- Eduardo Camavinga OUT- Federico Valverde
Frankfurt’s morale has visibly gone down but the Europa champion is still trying to put on a fight. However, Madrid looks too comfortable to do anything wrong at the moment.
Real Madrid Subs: IN- Rodrygo OUT- Luka Modric
Eintracht Frankfurt Subs: IN- Lucas Alario OUT- Almamyu Toure
GOOOOAALL! BENZEMA DOUBLES MADRID’S LEAD! Vinicius makes a darting run down the left flank and finds Benzema, like he so often does, with a grounded cross. Benzema shoots at Trapp and the ball slips between the keeper’s grasp to end up inside the net.
SHOT- Knauff shoots at Courtois with the inside of his right foot. The idea was good but the shot did not have enough power to beat Courtois.
OFF THE POST- Casemiro, in space, dispatches from a considerable distance. The ball rattles the crossbar and Frankfurt survives. We all know that the Brazilian has the ability to score from distance.
Double Frankfurt change: IN- Mario Gotze and Randal Kolo Muani OUT- Sebastian Rode and Jesper Lindstrom
Madrid, trying to find an opening in the Frankfurt defence, finally succeeds after Mendy finds Vinicius with a low cross from the left. Vinicius shoots but Trapp is alert enough to save it. The shot took a deflection which made it harder for the Frankfurt keeper.
A good passing move by Madrid ends after Benzema fails to find Alaba on the overlap. Frankfurt tries to create an attack after snatching the ball but cannot create anything significant.
Real Madrid picking up right where it left off in the first half with a fast and solid start. Frankfurt is pegged back in its own half right now.
BACK FOR THE SECOND HALF
HALF-TIME (Real Madrid 1-0 Eintracht Frankfurt)
Just one added minute at the end of the first half
SHOT: Benzema inches away from making it 2-0 for Madrid. He was one-on-one with Trapp but his shot misses the target.
GOOOAAAL! ALABA OPENS THE SCORING FOR MADRID! A lapse of concentration by Frankfurt players from a Real Madrid corner and the European champion pounces. Frankfurt failed to clear the ball and Casemiro heads the ball across to Alaba who had a simple tap-in inside an open net.
A phase of Madrid pressure ends with Militao’s cross inside the box but Lenz with a good sense of positioning to anticipate the danger and ease the ball away with his head.
Carvajal and Lenz are involved in a collision for the second time in the match and again, the latter comes off second best. Carvajal immediately gets up and looks fine. Lenz receiving some treatment but by the looks of it, he will be okay to carry on.
Madrid with more of the ball
SHOT: Knauff shoots at the Madrid goal but the angle was against him. Still, it forces a save out of Courtois.
Frankfurt also seems to have found its footing in the match. It is creating some attacking chances in the Madrid half.
Cleared off the line: Madrid surely must have thought that was 1-0. A brilliant counter attack leaves Frankfurt exposed for a while. Benzema has a chance to shoot at goal but instead passes to Vinicius. Vinicius takes a shot from close-range but his shot is cleared off the line by Tuta.
SAVE: Frankfurt’s first real chance in the game. Kamada does well to get behind the defence and make a run at goal. He shoots low but Courtois goes down in time to make the save.
Benzema takes the ball down well inside the box but is surrounded by Frankfurt players. He finds help in Vinicius who tries to make his way inside the box but loses possession.
That was a painful one- Lenz and Carvajal, both going for the ball, collide with each other. Lenz seems to have come off worse in that coming together but he seems fine. Nothing too serious.
Madrid slowly finding its stride in the game- Frankfurt is slightly on the backfoot but the Los Blancos haven’t posed any substantial threat as of now.
A lively start to the game. Both teams trying to find openings in the opponent’s defence. Good to see neither team sitting back in the opening minutes.
And we are underway at the Helsinki Olympic Stadium in Finland.
12:15 am: Squad news
Real Madrid will travel to Finland with its full squad. New signings Antonio Rudiger and Aurelien Tchouameni can expect game time in their first competitive fixture in the white jersey.
Eintracht Frankfurt, on the other hand, is without defenders Aurelio Buta (knee injury) and Jerome Onguene (thigh problem) but Hrvoje Smolcic, who was out with suspension against Bayern, is expected to return.
Wing back, Filip Kostic, who is rumoured about a move to Juventus, may also be unavailable to manager Oliver Glasner.
12:00 am: Team Form
It is the first competitive fixture for Real Madrid after the Champions League final. It has played three friendlies since, winning, losing and drawing one match each.
Eintracht Frankfurt, on the other hand, comes into the match after a 6-1 thrashing against Bayern Munich. However, it has made optimistic beginnings in DFB Pokal, winning the Round 1 match and will hope to return to winning ways after lifting a European trophy, ending a 42-year wait.
11:45 pm: The prize!
11:30 pm: Head-to-Head record of both the teams
Real Madrid and Eintracht Frankfurt have met just once in the 1960 European Cup final at Hampden Park in Scotland when Real had won its fifth straight European title.
11:15 pm: Starting Lineups!
Real Madrid XI: Courtois (GK); Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Valverde, Benzema, Vinicius JR.
Eintracht Frankfurt XI: Trapp (GK); N’Dicka, Tuta, Toure; Lenz, Rode, Sow, Knauff; Lindstroem, Kamada; Borre.
Real Madrid will look to start the 2022-23 campaign with a win when it faces Europa League champion Eintracht Frankfurt at the Helsinki Olympic Stadium in Finland on Wednesday.
The 14-time European Champion has allowed Gareth Bale and Isco Alcaron to leave Santiago Bernabeu after their contracts expire.
It will hope to find more success under Carlos Ancelotti, who became the most successful Champions League manager after lifting the UCL last season. The Italian has already won the Super Cup with Real in 2014 and will look to double his tally of the trophy with the Spanish Giant.
On the other hand, Eintracht Frankfurt has never played in this competition. And, it has begun the Bundesliga season with a dismal performance against Bayern Munich.
The UEFA Super Cup sees the UCL and UEL winners lock horns and a win for the German side will be a pleasant surprise to cheer for, early on in the season.
Real Madrid is chasing its fifth UEFA Super Cup, not having won it since 2017 – one that will equal it with AC Milan and Barcelona.
It will be the first UEFA club competition final to use the semi-automated offside technology. The system was tested at the women’s Euro 2022 in England and in the Champions League last season. It was also approved by FIFA for the World Cup in Qatar.
When does the match start and where can you watch it?
The UEFA Super Cup final match between Real Madrid and Eintracht Frankfurt will kick off at 12:30 am IST on August 11. The match will be broadcasted on Sony Ten 2 SD & HD and live streamed online on SonyLIV, JioTV.
