Real Madrid (RM) and Eintracht Frankfurt (FRK) clash in the UEFA Super Cup 2022 match at the Olympic Stadium in Helsinki, Finland, on Thursday, August 11. The match will start at 12:30 AM IST.
RM vs FRK Dream11 prediction
Real Madrid will start as favourites against Eintracht Frankfurt. Real, who are making their eighth appearance in the UEFA Super Cup final, have won the competition four times (2002, 2014, 2016 and 2017).
Frankfurt are making their first appearance in the UEFA Super Cup having won the Europa League 2021-22.
The teams have met just once in the past in the final of the 1959/60 European Cup, where four goals from Ferenc Puskás and a hat-trick from Alfredo di Stefano sealed a 7-3 win for Real against Frankfurt.
RM vs FRK Dream11 team tips for UEFA Super Cup 2022
Top tip: Best forward
It certainly is a no-brainer that Karim Benzema will be the top forward to consider for this fixture. The French striker, with almost 90 goals in European club competitions, will look to open his account for the season against Frankfurt in style and add another club trophy to his cabinet. Benzema is available at a price of 10.5 credits.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Mario Gotze is a top pick for this contest. The 2014 World Cup winner, who returned to the Bundesliga with a summer transfer to Eintracht, has three assists in eight meetings against Real Madrid and could create goal-scoring opportunities from the midfield engine room for Die Adler. At 8.5 credits, Gotze is likely to return with maximum points for fantasy managers.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
At 8.5 credits, Real full-back David Alaba is an excellent selection as a defender for this match. The Austrian international is known for his attacking prowess and will look to keep the likes of Rafael Borre and former Bayern team-mate Mario Gotze at bay with his robustness at the back.
For a goalkeeper, Kevin Trapp will be slightly favoured over Real Madrid’s Thibaut Courtois. The Frankfurt stopper will constantly be on his toes to keep the likes of Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior from scoring goals, and he is priced at 8.5 credits, making him a gamble worth taking.
RM vs FRK probable playing XI
RM playing XI (probable): Thibaut Courtois (goalkeeper); Dani Carvajal, Éder Militão, David Alaba, Ferland Mendy; Toni Kroos, Casemiro, Luka Modrić; Federico Valverde, Karim Benzema, Vinícius Júnior
FRK playing XI (probable): Kevin Trapp; Evan Ndicka, Tuta, Almamy Toure; Filip Kostic, Ansgar Knauff, Sebastian Rode, Djibril Sow; Mario Gotze, Daichi Kamada; Rafael Borre
