Real Madrid will look to equal the most UEFA Super Cup victories when they face Eintracht Frankfurt in the European curtain raiser tonight.
Los Blancos know a win this evening will move them level with Barcelona and AC Milan for five trophies but Frankfurt should provide a stern test.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side men booked their spot in the Super Cup having edged out Liverpool to win their 14th Champions League crown in May.
Frankfurt, meanwhile, came from behind to secure a penalty shootout win over Scottish giants Rangers in the Europa League.
The Bundesliga outfit opened up their new season last Friday with a 6-1 defeat to Bayern Munich – who remain the only German side to win the Super Cup.
