How do they get there? The ‘merengue’ cast comes from exercising their pre-season jobs. The United States was the destination he used for coach Carlo Ancelotti to gradually incorporate the new reinforcements that arrived: defender Antonio Rudiger and midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni.
Precisely, on North American soil, the Spanish played three friendlies with a not very positive balance. This is because they achieved a defeat (0-1 against Barcelona), a victory (2-0 against Juventus) and a draw (2-2 against America of Mexico). In any case, they are test matches, so the real acid test will be in this final and at the start of the Spanish LaLiga.
Now, those from the White House have come to this instance after consecrating themselves as champions of the Champions League last season. In the final they prevailed with a solitary goal from the Brazilian Vinicius Junior after an assist from the Uruguayan Federico Valverde. A South American connection that has settled in the starting eleven of the Italian DT to accompany Karim Benzema on the attack.
In the case of the Teutonic cast, it is in the middle of a problem, since one of its figures, the Serbian Philip Kostic, is nothing to be transferred to Juventus of Italy. For this reason, he has not been included in the squad list, as confirmed by the club’s sporting director, Markus Krosche. “We decided at the request of the possible new club, to play the game against Real Madrid without Filip,” the manager said in a statement.
As for their preparation, those led by Oliver Glasner played four friendlies. Along these lines, they had better fortune than their rival on duty, as they won in three (1-0 against Viktoria Aschaffenburg, 3-1 against Torino and 5-0 against Astoria Walldorf) and tied in one (0-0 against LASK ). They also thrashed FC Magdeburg 4-0 in the first phase of the German Cup.
However, last weekend they suffered a resounding 1-6 loss to the almighty Bayern Munich on the first date of the Bundesliga. A tough result in the run-up to this important trophy.
To face Real Madrid, ‘Las Águilas’ won the final of the Europe League Scotland Rangers 5-4 on penalties after going 1-1 in regulation time. Hence, he is an opponent to consider for the ‘Madridista’ squad.
The entity chaired by Florentino Pérez comes to this contest with its best weapons. However, the ‘kickers’, in addition to Kostic’s loss, are the doubts of Aurelio Buta and Jerome Onguene, both due to injury.
“There are six titles at stake and we want to fight for all of them. My players are professionals and they arrive prepared to face Eintracht, who did something extraordinary last season. He wasn’t among the favourites, but he played some great games in the Europa League. Against Barcelona, he won at the Camp Nou playing with counter football, great defensive attention and a lot of speed in transitions. It is a team that will surely create difficulties for us”, declared Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti.
For his part, Oliver Glasner, DT of the Germans, said the following: “We all really want to face (Real Madrid). I don’t see it as a face-to-face against Carlo Ancelotti, but rather with Real Madrid, one of the biggest and most illustrious clubs in the history of football, which has won the Champions League five times in recent years. We want to prepare ourselves to have every chance of winning the match”.
