UEFA Super Cup betting tips: Another trophy for Los Blancos
UEFA Super Cup betting tips
Europa League winners Eintracht Frankfurt’s tough start to their season continues against Real Madrid as we analyse the odds to pick out some UEFA Super Cup betting tips.
The German side began their Bundesliga campaign with a 6-1 battering at home to another European heavyweight in Bayern Munich on Friday night.
Wednesday’s match at the Helsinki Olympic Stadium kicks off at 8pm and is live on BT Sport.
Frankfurt need improvements fast
Oliver Glasner needs to inject some confidence and belief into his troops ahead of another tough match.
Frankfurt never recovered against Bayern after falling two goals down inside 10 minutes at Deutsche Bank Park.
Joshua Kimmich and Benjamin Pavard struck while Jamal Musiala scored twice and Sadio Mane and Serge Gnabry also netted, with Randal Kolo Muani’s 64th-minute effort nothing more than a mere consolation.
Frankfurt know they have the ability to shock Europe’s best, though, with domestic wins over Bayern in the last three seasons as well as picking up some notable scalps during last season’s unbeaten Europa League campaign.

Frankfurt beat the likes of Olympiacos and Real Betis before producing one of their greatest results with a 4-3 aggregate win over Barcelona following a 3-2 success in the Nou Camp.
A two-legged semi-final victory over West Ham followed ahead of beating Rangers in the final.
The wins over Betis and Barca took their record against LaLiga sides to six wins in 10 matches, losing just once.
But Real Madrid should be too strong and a win with both teams scoring at 19/10 kicks off our UEFA Super Cup betting tips.
Another trophy for Madrid
Carlo Ancelotti guided Real to a Champions League and LaLiga double last season and are seen as heavy favourites for another trophy here at 4/9.
Club greats Marcelo and Gareth Bale may have departed the Bernabeu this summer but they have brought some big names in and look as strong as ever.
Midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni was a big-money signing from Monaco and joined free agent Antonio Rudiger following the defender’s departure from Chelsea while fit-again forward Eden Hazard is also likely to play more of a part this term.

Madrid have yet to start their campaign and will need to be on it from the off, beginning last season in style with a 4-1 win at Getafe.
They may take time to get going, though, so a drawn first half followed by a win appeals at 3/1.
Real Madrid v Eintracht Frankfurt meetings
These sides have only met once before – 62 years ago in the European Cup final – with Real running out 7-3 winners.
Frankfurt actually took a 1-0 lead in the 18th minute through Richard Kress but they found themselves 6-1 down after 70 minutes.
Ferenc Puskas scored four and Alfredo Di Stefano completed his hat-trick shortly after an Erwin Stein brace.
There are expected to be less goals in Finland on Wednesday night and a 1-0 win for Ancelotti’s side at 7/1 completes our UEFA Super Cup betting tips.
