Real Madrid and Manchester United meet in Skopje Super Cup

Two of Europe's most decorated clubs will seek to begin the new European season as they ended the last – by lifting silverware, as Real Madrid CF take on Manchester United FC in the UEFA Super Cup in Skopje on the 8th of August.

Madrid qualified for their third UEFA Super Cup in four seasons by winning their 12th European Cup in Cardiff on 3 June, defeating Juventus 4-1 in the UEFA Champions League final at the National Stadium of Wales. The Merengues therefore became the first time to defend the trophy in the UEFA Champions League era, and the first team to win successive European Cups since AC Milan in 1989 and 1990.

United, meanwhile, defeated AFC Ajax 2-0 in the UEFA Europa League final in Stockholm on 24 May, becoming the fifth side to win all three major UEFA club competitions, adding to their three European Cups (1968, 1999, 2008) and the European Cup Winners' Cup success in 1991.

This match will be played in Skopje, the first UEFA club competition final to be held in FYR Macedonia.
