By Adenike Olusiku
The wait is over football is back!!!! and what better way to kick off the season than to have two of the biggest club in the world (Real Madrid and Manchester United) face off forget about last weekend Community Shield (friendly) this is the real the deal.
The match will be played at the Philip II Arena in Skopje, Macedonia. Real Madrid who are the current champions league holder will battle Manchester united who won the Uefa Europa League for the 42nd edition of the UEFA Super Cup.
This would be the first time Jose will face madrid since leaving the club in 2013 and it is perfect timing for United to send a warning sign to the rest of europe and a chance to get revenge over his former employers after a turbulent three season with the club. Madrid are the best team in europe at the moment so they would definitely be favourite to retain the trophy.
Both teams have made reinforcement to their winning side last season with Manchester United getting young Swede defender Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Matic and Real Madrid getting promising youngsters like Theo Hernandez and Dani Ceballos to their already star studded squad.
Meanwhile, UEFA have said Manchester United and Real Madrid will be allowed two water breaks due to the temperature in Macedonia.
The match will be stopped in the 30th and 75th minutes if the weather continues to soar.
It is expected to be around 32°C when the duo kick off at 7:45pm.
