Who Are The Favourites?

Real to win @ 8/5 - BET NOW

The clash between the Champions League and Europa League winners in Tallinn marks the first time in the Super Cup's history that two clubs from the same city have met. Real, who are looking to win the trophy for the third time on the trot, are judged to be slight favourites in the UEFA Super Cup odds at 8/5.

The 'derby' showdown also represents the first time the new Real will be on show following Zinedine Zidane's departure as head coach in the wake of their Champions League final success over Liverpool in Kiev and, with Julen Lopetegui now in charge, they are also without previous superstar talisman Ronaldo.

Therefore it might be a disjointed Real that takes to the field against Atleti. Summer signings Thibaut Courtois, Alvaro Odriozola and 18-year-old winger Vinicius Junior will be desperate to impress should they get the nod to start, while Gareth Bale will be keen to establish himself as the main man following Ronaldo's move to Juventus.

What is Our Recommended Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid Betting Tip?

Atletico Madrid to win @ 2/1 - BET NOW

With a big question mark over the future of Inter Milan-linked Luka Modric, there appears to be a bit of behind-the-scenes upheaval at the European champions and Atletico can take advantage.

Diego Simeone's men finished three points and one place above Los Blancos in second in La Liga last term and will fancy their chances of coming away with the trophy for the third time after also winning the Super Cup in 2010 and 2012.

Boosted by Antoine Griezmann's somewhat unexpected decision to stay, Atletico have also recruited the talented Thomas Lemar this summer from Monaco, while seasoned stars Jan Oblak, Diego Godin, Koke and Diego Costa are players Real will respect and fear.

Given what's at stake, both sides will be treating the occasion seriously - even if it is seen by some as a glorified friendly ahead of the new season - but Atletico can lay down an early marker for the campaign by edging what is expected to be a tight contest.
