Real Madrid supporters are shocked by the start of their UEFA Super Cup match against Eintracht Frankfurt. Today, August 10, is the day when they will compete at the Helsinki Olympic Stadium for their first season-opening trophy.
Rudiger left Chelsea this summer after his contract expired and joined Los Blancos on a free transfer. Some anticipate that he will play against Frankfurt, but he is instead on the bench.
Carlo Ancelotti's new starting line-up has been selected by the club.
Militao is appointed as the defense's lead alongside David Alaba, which has angered many supporters. They have posted their reactions on Twitter:
I understand that Ancelotti is an unsettling old man who wants to start with the same roster as the one that prevailed in the UCL final. However, Rudiger is stepping back against Militao. If we don't win this game, I'll swear.
I understand that Ancelotti is an unassuming old man who wants to start with the same lineup as before in the UCL final. However, Rudiger is leaving Militao on the sidelines. If we don't win this game, we'll swear.
I believed Rudiger ws was promoted to be Rel Mdrid's top defensive, but Ancelotti has instead decided to dismiss him.
Milito was moved to Rel Mdrid from Porto in 2019. He s prticipated in 91 gmes for Los Blncos nd lst seson, and stained them in winning the LLig nd Chmpions Legue titles.
Ancelotti hd lredy stted tht he would beat with the sme lineup s in the Chmpions Legue finl during a press conference yesterdy before the gme.
The sid of the former Prime Minister (vi Rel Mdrids website):
Despite the old concerns about two or three of the plyers, we didn't just previl. Ill strt with the mny of the plyers who were deserving of plying, however Ill keep an eye on Rel Mdrid in the Chmpions Legue finl (smiles).
Crlo Ancelotti believes that in order for Rel Mdrid to win the Super Cup, they will hve to compete in ginst Eintrcht Frnkfurt.
In their opening Bundeslig gme on August 5, Byern Munich defeated Eintrcht Frnkfurt and the 2018 Europ Legue chmpions.
Crlo Ancelotti, the mnger of Rel Mdrid, believes that the Germn tem should not be judged by their defet to Byern. He sid tht in order to win the UEFA Super Cup, Los Blncos would need to compete equally.
The Itlin mnger sid:
I wtched the Eintrcht vs. Byern gme, but we re not going to be duped by tht. They defeted some very strong tems, thus they deserved to win the Europ Legue. They re a lively tem tht plys fst-pced footbll.
We re well wre of them, nd if we wnt to defet them, we will need to fight, bttle, and ply well. Weve trined well nd feel very confident, so were in good shpe to do just tht. We feared fter defeating the Chmpions Legue is still present for us nd our supporters. We wnt to keep the momentum in place.
On August 14, Rel Mdrid will begin their LLig title defense wy t Almeri fter their Super Cup mtch ginst Frnkfurt.
