With the new La Liga season not due to start until 12th August, the Super Cup will be Real Madrid's first competitive game since winning their 14th Champions League title in Paris at the end of May. Carlo Ancelotti's side had a mixed pre-season, losing 1-0 to Barcelona in Las Vegas, drawing 2-2 with Club América in San Francisco, and beating Juventus 2-0 in LA, so it'll be a good opportunity to see what the Spanish champions are all about.
Ancelotti has picked the same side that overcame Juve in California and it's a team that has a very familiar look to it. There's no place for summer signing Antonio Rüdiger at the back, with Alaba and Militão preferred in defence, while Modric, Casemiro and Kroos all start in midfield. Benzema continues up top with Vini Jr. and Fede Valverde either side of him.
Eintracht Frankfurt are well ahead of their opponents in terms of match fitness, but have also had mixed fortunes so far. A 4-0 thrashing of Magdeburg in the DFB-Pokal on 1st August was followed by a 6-1 home defeat by Bayern Munich in their opening Bundesliga game on Friday evening. Head coach Oliver Glasner will be hoping his side's fierce counter-attacking style will be able to catch the out-of-practice Spaniards off guard.
Glasner had made two changes to the side that were so comprehensively beaten by Bayern, with Christopher Lenz in for Filip Kostić who's on the verge of joining Juventus, and Daichi Kamada replacing World Cup winner Mario Götze who drops to the bench.
It's an 8pm GMT kick-off at the Helsinki Olympic Stadium today, Wednesday 10th August 2022. Read on for more details on how to watch a Real Madrid vs Eintracht Frankfurt live stream for the 2022 UEFA Super Cup, wherever you are in the world.

Watch a Real Madrid vs Eintracht Frankfurt live stream from abroad using a VPN

As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee.
