Real Madrid and Sevilla poised for Uefa Super Cup rendezvous

Real Madrid and Sevilla lock horns in the Uefa Super Cup on Tuesday.

The match that pits the Champions League and the Europa League winners against each other will be missing a host of football’s superstars.

Real Madrid will be without Wales forward Gareth Bale, Germany midfielder Toni Kroos and Portugal’s Euro 2016 winners Pepe and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has even included his 18-year-old goalkeeper son Luca in the squad as they prepare to face their La Liga rivals and win the trophy for a third time.

Jorge Sampaoli’s Sevilla, who beat Liverpool to win last season’s Europa League final, will hope it’s a case of third time lucky.

It is Sevilla’s third straight appearance in the Super Cup but lost the previous two to Real Madrid in 2014 and then again to Barcelona last year.

This year’s event takes place in Trondheim, Norway.
