Champions League winners Real Madrid face Europa League champions Eintracht Frankfurt in the UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday evening.

The Bundesliga side claimed only the second European trophy in the club's history in May when they defeated Rangers on penalties and are rank outsiders against the 14-time European champions.

Real Madrid vs Eintracht Frankfurt latest odds

Carlo Ancelotti's men are aiming to claim this trophy for the fourth time in eight years and are massive favourites to triumph once again.

Los Blancos are offered at 4/9 (1.44) with bet365 to win in 90 minutes and at just 2/11 (1.22) to lift the cup.

The Germans meanwhile are available at 19/4 (5.75) to win without extra time and at 10/3 (4.33) to win the trophy.

The draw can be backed at 15/4 (4.75).

Real Madrid vs Eintracht Frankfurt first goal scorer

The favourite to score the first goal is arguably the best striker in the world at the moment, with Karim Benzema also high-fancied to claim this year's Ballon d'Or.

The Frenchman enjoyed his best ever scoring season in the previous campaign and is vital to Madrid's hopes of enjoying more success.

Benzema is priced at 5/2 (3.50) to score first ahead of Vincius Junior who is available at 92/ (5.50).

Marco Asensio has been linked with a move away from the Bernabeu this summer but has had a knack for scoring in big games and is offered at 11/2 (6.50) with Rodrygo Goes at 6/1 (7.00).

The shortest priced player to score first for Eintracht is Colombian Rafael Santos Borre at 10/1 (11.00), while new signing Randal Kolo Muani is offered at 12/1 (13.00).

Real Madrid vs Eintracht Frankfurt preview

While Madrid begin their La Liga campaign this weekend, Eintracht have already begun their domestic duties with a cup win over second-tier Magdeburg followed by a 6-1 thrashing in their opening Bundesliga match at the hands of Bayern Munich.

Physically, the Germans could be sharper although Madrid have been working hard over the summer towards this game.

Los Blancos take the UEFA Super Cup extremely seriously and will be highly motivated for the clash.

There seems little reason to oppose Real Madrid although backing Eintracht to score could also appeal.

The Germans scored in all 13 of their Europa League matches last term, including in both legs of their famous victory over Barcelona.

Even at the weekend when they were well beaten by Bayern they managed to score and backing them to do so on Wednesday should appeal.

Real Madrid vs Eintracht Frankfurt tips and predictions

Real Madrid to win and both teams to score looks like an appealing option at 2/1 (3.00), while a more cautious angle is simply backing goals at both ends at 4/5 (1.80).

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
