Real Madrid head to Cardiff for Super Cup Final

Cardiff City Stadium

Carlo Ancelotti’s men are heading to Wales to compete for the UEFA Super Cup against Sevilla.

Real Madrid have departed Spain and are now heading for Cardiff to contest the UEFA Super Cup final on Tuesday.

The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos, James Rodriguez and Cardiff-born Gareth Bale have been snapped leaving Madrid on Monday, as they head to Wales to try and claim their first silverware of the season.

Madrid reached the one-off fixture by beating neighbours Atletico Madrid in the Champions League final back in May, with Ramos, Bale, Marcelo and Ronaldo ensuring they landed their tenth European Cup.

Sevilla arrive having beaten Benfica on penalties to win the Europa League, and will make it an all-Spanish affair in thw Welsh capital on Tuesday.

The Super Cup represents one of six possible trophies for Madrid this season, along with the Spanish Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, and the usual offerings in La Liga, the Copa del Rey and the Champions League.

The European Champions have certainly been working hard to equip themselves this summer to challenge on six fronts, adding the likes of Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez to their squad. They have also added goalkeeper Keylor Navas, although Iker Casillas will start on Tuesday according to Carlo Ancelotti.

Kroos and Rodriguez are likely to make their debuts, while Bale, Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Luka Modric are expected to complete a stellar front six.
