Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid betting preview
Real Madrid won just one of last five games against AtleticoReal Madrid won the trophy this time last year, beating Manchester United 2-1 at the Philip II Arena in Macedonia. They begin a new life without manager Zinedine Zidane and Ballon D'Or Cristiano Ronaldo. Julen Lopetegui has been appointed as new manager this summer. His team has won three of their four pre-season fixtures, only losing 2-1 to Manchester United. Their last outing saw the Merengues beating AC Milan 3-1. Domestically, Real Madrid have struggled against Diego Simeone's men in recent years - the Galacticos have won only one of their last five meetings with their city rivals in all competitions.
Keylor Navas should start in goal ahead of Thibaut Courtois. Luka Modric started Real Madrid's final friendly of the summer on Saturday on the bench and is likely to be benched again, leaving Casemiro and Toni Kroos in midfield. New signing Vinicius Jr was impressive in pre-season, he is likely to play a part in the match. Up front, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema would seek to thrive in the spotlight - having been overshadowed by Ronaldo's presence at the Bernabeu. Marco Asensio and Isco will start as offensive midfielders.
Atletico have a 100% record in the Super Cup, winning it in 2010 and 2012Atletico Madrid had a unconvincing pre-season, winning just one of their five clashes, and drawing two. The Rojiblancos lost 1-0 at the hands of Inter Milan at the Wanda Metropolitano last Saturday. They also lost to Paris Saint-Germain and drew with Arsenal this summer. Last season Diego Simeone's men won the Europa League but finished well behind Barcelona in La Liga despite boasting the best defensive record (for the third consecutive season), conceding only 22 goals.
Atletico smashed their own transfer record to sign Thomas Lemar for £58million (€65m). The Colochoneros also added Gelson Martins, Rodri, Santiago Arias and Nikola Kalinic to their squad. There has also been notable departures from the Wanda Metropolitano, with long-term stalwarts Fernando Torres and Gabi Fernandez departing the club on free transfers. Antoine Griezmann was missing from the starting eleven against Inter Milan, but the Frenchman is likely to return on Wednesday and partner Diego Costa in attack. Saul Niguez and Thomas Partey should be the starting pair in te middle of the park.
