THE KEYS STATS
- Real Madrid are participating in the Super Cup for the eighth time, only Barcelona (nine) have more appearances
- Real Madrid have won the Super Cup on four occasions, if they are victorious in 2022, they will equal AC Milan and Barcelona’s record of five wins.
- This will be Frankfurt's first UEFA Super Cup appearance; when they won the UEFA Cup in 1980, it was the European Cup Winners' Cup holders who took on the European Cup winners for the Super Cup.
- The only German club to have won the Super Cup previously is Bayern (2013 and 2020).
- Frankfurt are the fifth German club to feature in the UEFA Super Cup, following Bayern, Dortmund, Hamburg and Bremen.
- The European Cup/UEFA Champions League holders have won 26 of the UEFA Super Cup's 46 editions.
- The UEFA Cup/UEFA Europa League winners have won 8 of the 22 finals since the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup was discontinued in 1999 – however, since Zenit in 2008, the only non-European champion club to have managed it are Atlético de Madrid, in 2010, 2012 and 2018.
- 24 teams from 12 different countries have won the UEFA Super Cup.
- Seven of the last nine UEFA Super Cup matches have gone into extra-time, including each of the four most recent (2018, 2019, 2020, 2021)
Not since the historic 1960 European Cup Final – which a legendary Real Madrid team won 7-3 for their fifth consecutive trophy – have these two sides met, and the Spanish giants will once again be considered the heavy favourites here. Eintracht Frankfurt, appearing in their inaugural UEFA Super Cup contest, defied expectations to win the Europa League last season, but they’ve begun their domestic campaign in worrying fashion with a sobering 6-1 defeat to Bayern Munich over the weekend. Hardly ideal preparation to face this well-oiled Real Madrid machine then. Carlo Ancelotti will likely go with his tried and trusted players here, and their vast experience should carry them over the line fairly comfortably. For extra value, consider backing the evergreen Karim Benzema to get on the scoresheet in the process.
