The Helsinki Olympic Stadium dressed up to host the celebration of the European Super Cup final . On the one hand, Real Madrid landed in Finland as the top favorite to win this title on the Old Continent. On the other hand, it is not convenient to leave aside the candidacy of an Eintracht from Frankfurt that took the cat to the water in the fight for the Europa League.
Carlo Ancelotti would opt for the eleven gala with which he knocked out Liverpool in the grand final of the Champions League (in Paris). That is to say, Thibaut Courtois would be the guardian under the sticks, supported at the rear by Dani Carvajal, Éder Militao, David Alaba and Ferland Mendy. The Holy Trinity in midfield would return to the scene with Casemiro, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos, along with a lung like Fede Valverde.
To close with the lineup of the 14-time winner of the orejona, Vinícius and Karim Benzema would be the chosen ones in search of the goal. For his part, Oliver Glasner would opt for Trapp in goal. In defence, he would have a three central system with Touré, Tuta and N'Dicka. Likewise, he would give depth with Knauff and Lindström, but he would notice the loss of Kostic (heading for Juventus). And we must not neglect the presence of Rode, Sow, Lenz and Santos Borré.
Karim Benzema keeps flying high
Courtois would make a fantastic intervention to lock his domains, although the action would be invalidated due to an illegal position. Shortly after, the Belgian would have to save the furniture again (against Kamada) due to a mistake by Mendy. As for Trapp, he would be very vigilant to anticipate Vini after Modric's leaked shipment. To which it should be added that Tuta would be imperial to prevent the Brazilian's goal under the sticks.
Militao would have to burst into action to stop Lindström, while Fede Valverde was putting together a match to frame. Little by little, Real Madrid would impose its style on the green table. Trapp would be providential to avoid Vinícius' target, but there was nothing he could do at the exit of the corner kick. All this, of course, because Casemiro's extension would be perfectly exploited by David Alaba before the break (1-0).
Upon returning from the locker room tunnel, with prior notice from Benzema, Trapp would once again win the game over Vini after sending Mendy. Valverde would also try his luck, while Casemiro's shot would be repelled by the crossbar. Courtois would have to stop Ansgar Knauff's shot, but the sentence would come through Benzema (2 – 0). Karim Benzema have reached 324 goals with the whites, surpassing another legend, Raúl González in goal tally after scoring in the Super Cup win.
