Real Madrid To Score In Both Halves Of UEFA Super Cup Clash With Man United

Real Madrid and Manchester United get their first taste of 'competitive' football for the season when they clash in the UEFA Super Cup at the Philip II Arena in Skopje, Macedonia, and recent history suggests there could be a few goals on Tuesday night...

  • A Spanish team has won 7 of the past 8 Super Cup matches
  • United have won 2 of their 10 competitive meetings with Real - Drawn 4, Lost 4

The Match Betting

The match sees last season's Champions League winners take on the Europa League champions and you can't help but feel that the fixture comes at a better time for Real Madrid as their La Liga campaign doesn't start for a few weeks, whereas United have the serious business of a Premier League match with West Ham coming up this weekend.

For Jose Mourinho, this represents a chance to win a fourth trophy in twelve months following United's Community Shield (does that count?!), EFL Cup and Europa League success but he has lost both of his previous Super Cup matches as manager (with Porto in 2003 and Chelsea in 2013) and I wonder how motivated his team will be for this game, with United 11/4 underdogs for Tuesday (William Hill).

United enjoyed a fine pre-season, winning six of seven games, but they have only won two of their previous ten competitive matches against Real (drawn four, lost four), while Real's indifferent pre-season form ensures we will be steering away from the match betting and focusing on goal markets...
Match Odds:

Goals Galore?

Real lost to United on penalties following a 1-1 draw in a recent friendly in America before losing 4-1 to Manchester City and 3-2 to Barcelona, although they did beat the MLS All Stars on penalties after another 1-1 draw last time out.

Yet another both teams to score tip is 4/6 (Bet 365) and that has paid out in four of the last five Super Cup matches, with those games producing 25 goals in total!

We prefer to back Real to score in both halves at 2/1 (Hills) as they are bolstered by the inclusion of Cristiano Ronaldo in their squad and United's defence looks vulnerable with both Eric Bailly and Phil Jones missing through suspension.

Real have won their past two appearances in the Super Cup, 2014 and 2016, scoring in both halves of each in the process, and Zinedine Zidane's men can show off their attacking credentials in their first competitive match of the 2017/18 campaign.
