UEFA Super Cup 2017: Real Madrid vs Manchester United

Manchester United and Real Madrid are aiming to start this season how they ended the last; by winning a trophy.

The Champions League and Europa League winners face off in Macedonia on tonight as Jose Mourinho goes up against his former club.

United will be vying for only their second Super Cup triumph, in their fourth attempt, while three-time winners Real are gearing up for their sixth outing.

Mourinho will be hoping to guide an English team to victory in the showpiece event for the first time since Liverpool in 2005, with United and Chelsea losing three matches between them since.

Real Madrid and Manchester United meet at the Philip II Arena in Skopje, Macedonia, with kick-off scheduled for 7.45pm BST on Tuesday, August 8.
