Real Madrid vs. Manchester United: Super Cup – Match Preview

Real Madrid and Manchester United go head to head on Tuesday night for the Super Cup after the pair won European honours last season.

Madrid became the first side to successfully defend the Champions League as they beat Juventus 4-1 in the final.

This summer they have added just two players in the form of Lucas Hernandez and Dani Ceballos.

Manchester United have again spent big, with Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic all arriving.

They are back in the Champions League this season having lifted the Europa League last campaign.

Cristiano Ronaldo returned to haunt his former side the last time the two met as Real Madrid eliminated Manchester United in the 2013 Champions League.

In charge of Madrid that night was Jose Mourinho, who is now obviously in the Old Trafford dugout.
