Manchester United take on Real Madrid for the Europa Super Cup. This is the first time in a long time that this fixture will involve two top quality teams and as a result, I am fascinated to see how it turns out.
Manchester United have spent well this season will that addition of Lukaku looking like a really good one. This side has immense potential and it looks like they can really challenge for the Premier League title this season. This fixture will be tough for the Red Devils though since they are up against one of the best teams in the world, Real Madrid. They will have their work cut out for them in this fixture but Mourinho knows how to win big games so they have a shot at causing an upset.
Real Madrid will welcome the return of Cristiano Ronaldo who is back in the side after missing a large portion of the preseason, The Portuguese striker is very talented as we all know and his experience and skill will make it tough for Manchester United. Kroos and Modric are also expected to play with the Spanish side being very close to full strength for this game.
As much as Mourinho knows how to win big games, I still think that Real Madrid wins here. This side is simply too strong and the class between the players is too much for any other possible result. We are getting a good price on this game so I think it is the best option in terms of betting. This game also might be a quite low scoring so the under 2.5 goals is also a good bet in my opinion.
