Wednesday 8 p.m.: Real Madrid – Eintracht Frankfurt
Television: BT Sport 1

Finland’s Olympic Stadium in Helsinki is hosting this season’s UEFA Super Cup, which will see Champions League winners Real Madrid take on Europa League champions Eintracht Frankfurt. Real have a very slim chance of winning the game on 90 minutes, with the Germans pretty much written off the market. However, we dug deep into the stats and form of both sides to find a value-laden quadruple bet builder.

Expect Oliver Glasner’s side to arrive at UEFA’s curtain raiser in better shape; Frankfurt have played four friendlies since beating Scottish Rangers on penalties in Sevilla last May and have also played in a German Cup and a Bundesliga game. Real have played just three friendlies since beating Liverpool 1-0 in Paris.

The Germans scored well in their pre-season, scoring nine goals in their four friendlies and scoring five in their two competitive games. Real, in their three friendlies, have scored four goals and only scored two of their last 20 matches. To start here, we have to go for a choice of both teams to score with these stats.

Karim Benzema had one of the best seasons of his career last campaign with Los Blancos. Indeed, he reached his highest league tally since turning professional with Lyon in 2005/06 with 27 La Liga goals as well as 17 in the Cup. He has pretty decent chances to score anytime, but we want to focus on his winger Vinicius Junior here as his chances are more attractive. The Brazilian was a revelation last season and with a World Cup fast approaching, he will continue to make a name for himself to secure his place in a highly competitive squad.

Last season, he scored 17 La Liga goals as well as five in Cup matches and four in the Champions League. He’s played in all three of their friendlies and has looked sharp and against that Frankfurt side who conceded six against Bayern Munich last Friday night, we think he’s going to enjoy himself on the left side of attack.

In the betting odds, Die Adler’s Christopher Lenz is the current favorite at the time of writing to land a booking, which is quite odd as the Berliner has only received seven bookings in his three seasons with the Eagles. There’s no doubt that Frankfurt’s back four will face a stern test against Benzema, Vinicius Jnr and Eden Hazard, Rodrygo or Marco Asensio, but there is one Real Madrid player who can usually be relied on to find his name in the referee’s black book.

Casemiro is an absolute soldier for Real Madrid, he contributes with goals and assists but we all know his real strength lies in breaking the opposition’s game and as such he is more than happy to pick up a card. In the same span the aforementioned Lenz picked up seven cards, our Brazilian executor has a total of 42. We’re getting a nice price here for him to pick up another booking here.

While the Germans are expected to come into this match a bit in better shape, the fact is that Real faced Barcelona, ​​Mexican league champions America and Juventus. The best team Frankfurt faced in their friendlies was Serie A’s Torino. Real have won eight of their last 11 European games and with the strength of their squad, we can only see one winner here. Getting Real to Win by two or more evens is full of value.
