A new era is in the works at Real Madrid and they can start it on the right note in tonight’s UEFA Super Cup against Atletico in Tallinn.
Real to win @ 29/20
This is the first time the two great rivals have met in the annual match between the Champions League winners and Europa League holders, and while Atleti had their tumultuous summer last term, it has been Real’s turn this time around.
Both Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo have departed since they won the Champions League in May and Julen Lopetegui has spoken about his frustration about a lack of signings.
However, Gareth Bale’s form in Ronaldo’s absence has been encouraging and after scoring twice in the Champions League final win over Liverpool, he can be the difference.
Bale to score at Anytime @ 7/4
The Welshman was linked with a move away before Zidane’s departure but now seems set to take centre stage under Lopetegui after a dynamic pre-season.
Bale famously scored in the 2014 Champions League final against Los Colchoneros but that is his only goal against Atleti, although he has provided six assists.
This season is his time to shine and he can be the difference in Tallinn.
