Here are our predicted line-ups for Eintracht Frankfurt's Super Cup game against Real Madrid tonight.
Europa League winners Eintracht Frankfurt will face Champions League champions Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup at Helsinki Olympic Stadium tonight.


'Die Adler' started out the season in dreadful fashion, losing 1-6 to Bayern München after being down 0-5 at half-time, and will need to show a different face if they are to beat the La Liga giants.

It was confirmed yesterday that Europa League 2021/22 Player of the Season Filip Kostic will not be involved, as he's on the verge of a move to Juventus.

At the pre-match press conference Eintracht coach Oliver Glasner said he's not planning to change his usual tactical set-up despite Kostic's absence.

Accordingly, Frankfurt are expected to line up in a 3-4-2-1, with Christopher Lenz likely to replace Kostic in the starting line-up.

Check out our predicted line-ups below.

Eintracht Frankfurt: Trapp - Touré, Tuta, Ndicka - Knauff, Sow, Rode, Lenz - Götze, Kamada - Borré.

Real Madrid: Courtois - Carvajal, Eder Militao, Alaba, Mendy - Modric, Casemiro, Kroos - Valverde, Benzema, Vinicius Junior.
