Big Match: Real Madrid vs Manchester United For UEFA Super Cup Preview Featuring Akintola Tunde

Manchester United and Real Madrid are aiming to start this season how they ended the last; by winning a trophy.
The Champions League and Europa League winners face off in Macedonia tonight as Jose Mourinho and Cristiano Ronaldo go up against their former clubs.
United will be vying for only their second Super Cup triumph, in their fourth attempt, while three-time winners Real are gearing up for their sixth outing.

Mourinho will be hoping to guide an English team to victory in the showpiece event for the first time since Liverpool in 2005, with United and Chelsea losing three matches between them since.

Nemanja Matic made a surprise start for United against Sampdoria last week, just two days after joining from Chelsea, so will be in contention to feature in Macedonia.

Paul Pogba and Ander Herrara will likely line up with the Serbian, but Jose Mourinho could well use some of his second string with United's Premier League opening against West Ham just four days later.

Eric Bailly and Phil Jones are both suspended.

Gareth Bale limped out of Real Madrid training on last week but Zinedine Zidane insisted the forward "looked good" afterwards, with Mourinho laying the gauntlet for Zidande to either start the Welsh winger or else open up a potential transfer to Old Trafford.

Otherwise, Cristiano Ronaldo has been declared fit by Zidane and could play a part after recovering from injury.

"It can go either side o but i hope to see united eventually carry the day." Akintola Tunde remain neutral even though he's a Manchester United supporter.
