Two European winners are ready to fight each other in their quest to lift the UEFA Super Cup before the start of their new season. Jose Mourinho is going to face his old club and no wonder he’s going to do his best to make a mark against UEFA Champions League winners Real Madrid as Europa League winners Manchester United seems to be in red-hot form.
UEFA Super Cup is the trophy Mourinho has never won and there’s not going to be a better opportunity to put a green mark on it by beating his old club with which he has a controversial history. Manchester United has already beaten Real Madrid on penalties in International Champions Cup but no wonder this match is going to be a lot different from that one.
As, Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is going to play in this one with Nemanja Matic also coming on for Manchester United to showcase his strength in Midfield against Casemiro of Madrid.
Zinedine Zidane will be hoping to show that El Clasico defeat by the hands of Barcelona was just a bad day at the office and hasn’t shaken their nerves or affected them at all. With Gareth Bale also being linked to Manchester United and also comments from Mourinho openly that he wants Bale at Manchester United and this transfer story is going to be affect by the performance of the Welshmen in tonight’s game.
It’s going to be an interesting match where we are going to see the first taste of competitive football as silverware is on the line and two European Champions are going head to head with “an old teacher going to face his old students who somewhere betrayed him and an old son who is coming back to his home again.”
