UEFA Super Cup
start: 20:45 (GMT+2)
first championship of Super Cup was held 45 years ago in 1972 and its
first winner was Ajax, Holland. At that time the trophy was called
Europa Super Cup and it was extremely popular.
while for last decades Europa Super Cup has lost its official status
and appeared to be exhibition show but the interest of million
football fans towards this tournament is changeless.
15 years (1998-2012) the final match of UEFA Super Cup was held at
the home arena of current champion of France Monaco. And since 2013
the place for Super Cup battle is absolutely new city. And now let us
remind the results of 5 previous Super Cup championships:
Monaco. Chelsea (England) – Atlético de Madrid (Spain) – 1:4.
Prague. Bayern (Germany) – Chelsea (England) – 2:2 and 5:4 in
Cardiff. Real Madrid (Spain) – Sevilla (Spain) – 2:0.
Tbilisi. Barcelona (Spain) – Sevilla (Spain) – 5:4.
Real Madrid (Spain) – Sevilla (Spain) – 3:2.
we see, in four out of 5 previous final matches the champion of the
Champions League was winning UEFA Super Cup. And only in 2012 the
current Europa champion Chelsea wasn’t ready for Super Cup battle.
time the place for final was the capital of Macedonia. But the
number of participants of the tournament is now more attractive. 3
last final matches of the Super Cups were
totally Spanish and now the most honored club of Spain will be
fighting with the club from England. It is obvious that this is
similar to the final of the Champions League.
favorite of the forthcoming Super Cup battle is the Spanish Royal
club according to bookmakers.
Madrid – 1.95, draw – 3.75, Manchester United – 3.80;
do these quotations come up to current days? As we have already seen,
well balanced team with the new stars Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic,
Victor Lindelöf. And we can say that the team is ready for the
beginning of a new season and are going to strengthen the squad by
the winger from Inter Milan Ivan Perišić.
what about Real Madrid? Here we have more questions than answers. And
the first one – Cristiano Ronaldo. As the champion of Europa has
declared that he wants to return to England were he had no problems
with tax police. As of this writing the issue of his participation in
the Super Cup battle is still unsolved…
