The first piece of European glory is up for grabs as Real Madrid and Eintracht Frankfurt lock horns in the UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday night.

The most anticipated match of the European football calendar is finally here, with Real Madrid and Liverpool all set for the Champions League final.

Madrid cruised to a 35th La Liga title this season, while Liverpool fell short on the last day of the English Premier League by a point.

The Spanish giants beat EPL winners Man City 6-5 on aggregate in the semis while Liverpool saw off Villarreal 5-2.

It will be a chance for revenge for the reds who lost 3-1 to Madrid in the 2018 Champions League final.

Liverpool are on course for a treble after a scintillating season that saw them win both the FA Cup and Carabao Cup.

Madrid on the other hand are looking to win a record-extending 14th UEFA Champions League title as the reds look for a 7th crown.

Los Blancos have suffered plenty of scares along the way, but they have won each of their last seven European finals.
