Real Madrid and Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

Frankfurt were thrashed 6-1 by Bayern Munich at home at the weekend and may struggle to cope with another quality outfit in Real Madrid.  However, the German outfit have scored five goals in two games this term and scored in all of their Europa League games last season, including four against La Liga opposition as they faced Barcelona and Real Betis in the knockout stages. As such, Frankfurt should at least be able to find a way through against a Los Blancos defence who are playing their first competitive game of the season.

Real Madrid 3-1

Reason for tip

Real aren’t quite as ruthless in attack as Bayern Munich, who scored six against Frankfurt at the weekend.  The Spanish giants can still win comfortably, however, and a 3-1 win for Los Blancos appeals.

Karim Benzema To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

Karim Benzema scored 15 goals in 12 Champions League games last season and was denied by VAR in the final.  The Frenchman has been in good form in pre-season, scoring in a 2-0 win over Juventus, and will be on penalty duties so he appeals as an anytime goalscorer option.

Real Madrid vs Eintracht Frankfurt Predictions

  • Frankfurt were thrashed 6-1 by Bayern Munich at home in their Bundesliga opener.
  • Real Madrid have won three of the last four UEFA Super Cups they have contested.
  • Both teams have scored in each of the last seven UEFA Super Cups.
  • Frankfurt scored in all their European games last season, including four against La Liga teams.

Real face Frankfurt in Finland

Champions League winners Real Madrid take on Europa League champions Eintracht Frankfurt in Helsinki and history suggests the first piece of European silverware available this season is heading to Spain.

Eight of the last nine UEFA Super Cup winners have been the previous season’s Champions League winners, and since 2009 only Atletico Madrid have won the Europa League and then gone on to claim the title – a feat they have managed on three occasions.

Frankfurt do have a slight advantage in the fact they have already played two competitive games this season, whereas this is Real’s first serious fixture, but the German club were thrashed 6-1 at home by Bayern Munich in their Bundesliga opener at the weekend and they could be set for a difficult night on Wednesday in the Finnish capital.

Real can finish the job in 90 minutes

Each of the last four Super Cup finals have required extra time and two of those have been decided on spot kicks. However, Real were the last team to win in 90 minutes and the Spanish giants are in fact the only side to have won in normal time since 2014, having done so twice in two of their four appearances during that time – winning the title on three occasions.

Frankfurt may well have held something back against Bayern with one eye on this game but the manner of that defeat remains concerning. Los Blancos were last in action in a 2-0 friendly win over Juve, and they should be able to overcome the Bundesliga side in normal time on Wednesday.

Real are a fairly short price to win so for a bit more value a victory for the Spanish and European champions with both teams to score stands out. There have been goals at both ends in each of the last seven Super Cup games, and as it is Los Blancos’ season opener they may be a bit more susceptible to errors at the back.

Frankfurt found a way through against Bayern and Die Adler have scored in both of their games this season. They also scored in all of their Europa League games last term – including both legs of their knockout ties against La Liga opposition in the shape of Real Betis and Barcelona – so they can find a way through against Madrid.

Benzema can fire Real to glory

Karim Benzema starred for Real in the Champions League last term with 15 goals in 12 games and the Frenchman will be looking to hit the ground running with an effort against Frankfurt in Helsinki.

Benzema didn’t score in the Champions League final but did see a strike chalked off due to a questionable offside call, despite VAR, and he looks a strong option for an anytime effort.

A 3-1 win for Real is the correct score selection as Frankfurt offered little resistance against Bayern. Los Blancos aren’t quite as ruthless as the Bavarians, but they still have plenty of attacking quality and can win with some room to spare.
