Match background Only this chapter

The UEFA Super Cup will have an unusually local feel in 2018 as European champions Real Madrid take on city rivals Atlético Madrid in Tallinn in the first one-city meeting in the competition's history.

• Real Madrid became the first club to claim three successive UEFA Champions League titles in 2017/18, and the first team to twice win the European Cup three years in a row. They are now attempting to add to that with another slice of history, by becoming the first side to win three successive UEFA Super Cups. A victory in the Estonian capital would also equal the competition record of five titles held jointly by AC Milan and Barcelona.

• Atlético, however, have never lost in this competition having won on both their previous appearances, in 2010 and 2012.

• Whoever wins in Tallinn, this will be a fifth successive UEFA Super Cup for Spain, who have won eight of the last nine matches. A Spanish side has not lost to non-Liga opponents since Sevilla's defeat by Milan in 2007.

• This will be Spain's 15th UEFA Super Cup triumph; Italy have nine with England on seven.

• This is the seventh UEFA Super Cup between two clubs from the same country, and the fifth all-Spanish affair; indeed, it is the fourth meeting between two Liga teams in five years.

Real Madrid and Atlético Super Cup flashback

UEFA Super Cup pedigree

Real Madrid
• This is Real Madrid's seventh appearance in the UEFA Super Cup (W4 L2); having lost their first two finals, they have won the last four.

• The full breakdown of their results is:
1998: Chelsea 1-0 Real Madrid (Poyet 83)
2000: Real Madrid 1-2aet Galatasaray (Raúl 79; Jardel 41pen 102)
2002: Real Madrid 3-1 Feyenoord (Paauwe og 15, Roberto Carlos 21, Guti 60; Van Hooijdonk 56)
2014: Real Madrid 2-0 Sevilla (Ronaldo 30 49)
2016: Real Madrid 3-2aet Sevilla (Asensio 21, Ramos 90+3, Carvajal 119; Vázquez 41, Konoplyanka 72p)
2017: Real Madrid 2-1 Manchester United (Casemiro 24, Isco 52; Lukaku 62)

• In 2017, Real Madrid became the first team to win successive UEFA Super Cups since Milan in 1989 and 1990. This year, they can become the first to win three in a row.

• Real Madrid have won four UEFA Super Cups; only Milan and Barcelona, with five apiece, have won more.

Watch Atlético's 2010 Super Cup triumph

• This is Atlético's third UEFA Super Cup appearance, all in the past nine years.

• Atlético have won their two previous fixtures in this competition, both in Monaco:
2010: Internazionale 0-2 Atlético (Reyes 62, Agüero 83)
2012: Chelsea 1-4 Atlético (Cahill 75; Falcao 6 19 45, Miranda 60)

• Atlético can become the first club to make it three victories from three in this competition; they are currently level with Anderlecht, Juventus and Valencia on two wins from two.

Previous meetings
This will be the teams' tenth international fixture, the previous nine all coming in the European Cup – including the UEFA Champions League finals of 2014 and 2016, both won by Real Madrid. Indeed, the Merengues have won all five of the clubs' European ties to date.

• The sides' most recent European fixtures came in the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League semi-finals, when Real Madrid won 4-2 on aggregate.

• Cristiano Ronaldo's first-leg hat-trick put Real Madrid in command of the tie, the Portuguese star finding the net in the tenth, 73rd and 86th minutes.

• The teams at the Santiago Bernabéu on 2 May 2017 were:
Real Madrid: Navas, Carvajal (Nacho 46), Ramos, Varane, Marcelo, Casemiro, Modrić, Kroos, Isco (Asensio 68), Benzema (Vázquez 77), Ronaldo.
Atlético: Oblak, Lucas, Savić, Godín, Filipe Luís, Koke, Gabi, Saúl (Gaitán 58), Carrasco (Correa 68), Griezmann, Gameiro (Torres 57).

• Atlético looked to be on course for a famous comeback when Saúl Ñíguez (12) and Antoine Griezmann (16pen) brought them back within a goal early in the second leg, but an Isco goal three minutes before half-time ultimately ended their hopes.

Highlights: Watch Atlético and Real Madrid's last European meeting

• The line-ups on 10 May 2017, for what was the last European fixture at Atlético's old Vicente Calderón home, were:
Atlético: Oblak, Giménez (Partey 56), Savić, Godín, Filipe Luís, Koke (Correa 76), Gabi, Saúl, Carrasco, Griezmann, Torres (Gameiro 56).
Real Madrid: Navas, Danilo, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo, Casemiro (Vázquez 77), Modrić, Kroos, Isco (Morata 88), Benzema (Asensio 76), Ronaldo.

• Their first international fixtures came in the 1958/59 European Cup semi-finals. Madrid won the home first leg 2-1, Héctor Rial's goal (15) and a Ferenc Puskás penalty (33) overturning Chuzo's 13th-minute opener. Atlético prevailed in the return thanks to Enrique Collar's 43rd-minute effort.

• That meant a replay six days later, played in Zaragoza, where Alfredo Di Stéfano's early strike was swiftly cancelled out by Collar. Puskás dealt the decisive blow three minutes before half-time to take Madrid into a fourth successive final.

It was 55 years until the teams' next European contest, in the 2014 final in Lisbon – the first final fixture involving clubs from the same city in European Cup history. Diego Godín's header (36) gave newly crowned Spanish champions Atlético the lead, and it looked like that would be enough for Simeone's side to claim their first European Cup – only for Sergio Ramos to level at the last (90+3). Carlo Ancelotti's Madrid ran away with it in extra time courtesy of goals from Gareth Bale (110), Marcelo (118) and a Ronaldo penalty (120).

• The line-ups at the Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica were:
Real Madrid: Casillas, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Fábio Coentrão (Marcelo 59), Khedira (Isco 59), Modrić, Di María, Bale, Benzema (Morata 79), Ronaldo.
Atlético: Courtois, Juanfran, Miranda, Godín, Filipe Luís (Alderweireld 83), Tiago, Koke, Gabi, Raúl García (Sosa 66), Villa, Diego Costa (Adrián López 9).

• The Merengues also came out on top in the 2014/15 quarter-finals, Javier Hernández heading the only goal of the tie late in the second leg at the Santiago Bernabéu.

See how Real Madrid claimed the 2016 UEFA Champions League

• Madrid and Atlético both advanced all the way to the final again in 2015/16. Ramos's 15th-minute breakthrough in Milan was cancelled out by Atlético substitute Yannick Carrasco 11 minutes from time, Griezmann having missed a 48th-minute spot kick.

• With no further goals, the match went to penalties. After Lucas Vázquez, Marcelo, Bale and Ramos had converted for Madrid, and Griezmann, Gabi and Saúl had done likewise, Juanfran struck the base of the post with Atlético's fourth kick, leaving Ronaldo to convert and take the trophy to Madrid for the 11th time.

• The sides at San Siro on 28 May 2016 were:
Real Madrid: Navas, Carvajal (Danilo 52), Ramos, Pepe, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kroos (Isco 72), Modrić, Bale, Benzema (Vázquez 77), Ronaldo.
Atlético: Oblak, Juanfran, Godín, Savić, Filipe Luís (Lucas Hernández 109), Gabi, Augusto Fernández (Carrasco 46), Koke (Partey 116), Saúl, Griezmann, Torres.

• The capital duo have met in 206 league, Spanish Cup and Spanish Super Cup games, with 103 Madrid wins, 51 for Atlético and 52 draws. Atlético have lost only one of their last 12 domestic matches against their local rivals since losing the 2014 UEFA Champions League final, recording five victories and six draws.

• Both Liga fixtures in 2017/18 ended all square, a goalless game at Atlético on 18 November 2017 preceding a 1-1 draw at the Bernabéu on 8 April this year. Ronaldo gave Real Madrid a 53rd-minute lead, Griezmann replying within four minutes.

Coach and player links
• New Real Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui was a goalkeeper at the club between 1985 and 1991, making his sole first-team appearance in a 3-3 draw away to Atlético at the end of the 1989/90 season. 

• That was one of 14 times Lopetegui came across Atlético in his playing days, with the record W5 D4 L5.

• Lopetegui was coach of Real Madrid Castilla in 2008/09, drawing both games against Atlético's B team that season. He also encountered Spanish opposition while in charge of Porto in 2014/15, winning both games against Athletic Club in the UEFA Champions League group stage. 

• Simeone's record against Madrid in all competitions as a player for Sevilla, Atlético and Lazio was W1 D2 L8. He scored once, in Atlético's 4-2 defeat on 5 November 1994.

• The Argentinian enjoys a much better record as a coach, having lost only two of his last 16 games against Madrid, with the 2016 UEFA Champions League final counted as a draw. Overall it is W8 D9 L8.

• Real Madrid's August signing Thibaut Courtois spent three years on loan at Atlético between 2011 and 2014, making 111 appearances. The Belgian was part of the Atlético side that won the UEFA Europa League in 2012, the Copa del Rey 12 months later – beating Real Madrid in the Bernabéu final – and the Liga title in 2013/14, when the Rojiblancos also reached the UEFA Champions League final, losing to their city rivals.

• Antonio Adán was at Real Madrid between 1997 and 2013. However, he made only seven appearances for the first team before departing for Cagliari.

• Raphaël Varane was in the France side that beat a Croatia team including Luka Modrić 4-2 in the FIFA World Cup final in Moscow on 15 July. Atlético pair Griezmann, who scored France's second goal, and Lucas Hernández were also in Les Bleus' line-up, with Thomas Lemar an unused substitute.

• Juanfran came through Madrid's academy, making six outings for the first team in 2003/04 and 2004/05.

• Isco, Nacho, Dani Carvajal and Koke were part of Spain's victorious 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Championship squad.

• Marco Asensio, Dani Ceballos, Rodri and Saúl Ñíguez were part of the Spain side that reached the final of the 2017 UEFA European Under-21 Championship.

• International team-mates:
Marcelo, Casemiro & Filipe Luís (Brazil);
Raphaël Varane & Antoine Griezmann, Lucas Hernández, Thomas Lemar (France);
Nacho, Isco, Dani Carvajal, Sergio Ramos, Marco Asensio, Lucas Vázquez & Diego Costa, Juanfran, Saúl Ñíguez, Koke (Spain);
Marco Asensio & Rodri, Saúl Ñíguez (Spain U-21)

• Griezmann has now scored four goals in his last eight appearances against Madrid, including most recently at the Bernabéu in a 1-1 draw in April.

• Ramos has twice been dismissed against Atlético – in a 1-1 Liga draw on 1 October 2006 and during Madrid's 3-2 top-flight victory in November 2009.

Head coach Only this chapter

Julen Lopetegui

Date of birth: 28 August 1966
Playing career: Real Sociedad, Real Madrid Castilla, Las Palmas, Real Madrid, Logroñés, Barcelona, Rayo Vallecano
Coaching career: Rayo Vallecano, Real Madrid Castilla, Spain Under-19s, Spain Under-20s, Spain Under-21s, Porto, Spain, Real Madrid

• Lopetegui's promising goalkeeping performances for Real Sociedad's youth sides led to a move to Real Madrid. The Basque native progressed into the senior squad, but, starved of opportunities, switched to Logroñes, where he made 107 Spanish top-flight appearances over three seasons.

• Those displays earned a move to Barcelona but again he found playing time limited, prompting a transfer to Rayo Vallecano, where he featured 112 times until retirement in 2002. He earned one senior international cap and was part of Spain's 1994 FIFA World Cup squad.

• Started his coaching career in 2003/04, at second division Rayo, but was dismissed after ten games. After five years away from the bench he returned to active duty in 2008/09 with Real Madrid Castilla, ending the third-tier campaign in sixth place.

• In 2010 Lopetegui joined the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) and led the U19s to the European title two years later before reaching the quarter-finals of the FIFA U-20 World Cup in 2013. He had assumed control of the U21s in August 2012 and guided the holders to the 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Championship, winning the title in Israel.

• On 6 May 2014, he returned to club duties with Porto but failed to win any silverware with the club and left his post in January 2016. Appointed Vicente del Bosque's successor as Spain coach in July that year and guided the side to the 2018 World Cup but departed on the eve of the finals to succeed Zinédine Zidane as Real Madrid coach.


Diego Simeone

Date of birth: 28 April 1970
Nationality: Argentinian
Playing career: Vélez Sarsfield, Pisa, Sevilla, Atlético Madrid (twice), Internazionale Milano, Lazio, Racing Club
Coaching career: Racing Club (twice), Estudiantes, River Plate, San Lorenzo, Catania, Atlético Madrid

• Launched career as a combative midfielder with Vélez Sarsfield and was a full Argentinian international at 18, making debut in a July 1988 friendly against Australia; went on to play in three FIFA World Cups and retired as Argentina's most-capped player (106 appearances, 11 goals). Moved to Italy in 1990 to join Pisa; two years later he left for Sevilla, where he played under Argentina's 1986 World Cup-winning coach Carlos Bilardo and – for one season – alongside Diego Maradona.

• Joined Atlético in 1994 and won the Spanish domestic double in his second season, his first major club honours to add to two Copa América titles (1991 and 1993) plus the 1992 FIFA Confederations Cup with Argentina.

• Enjoyed further success after returning to Italy, winning the UEFA Cup with Inter, plus a Serie A and Coppa Italia double in his debut campaign with Lazio (1999/2000). After four years in Rome, he returned to Madrid for a second spell with Atlético before ending his playing career in Argentina with Racing Club.

• Started coaching career with Racing Club and won Argentinian titles with Estudiantes (2006 Apertura) and River Plate (2008 Clausura); brief spells at San Lorenzo, Italian club Catania and Racing (again) preceded his appointment in December 2011 at Atlético.

• Led Atlético to victory in the 2012 UEFA Europa League final against Athletic Club and to a Copa del Rey final triumph over Real Madrid in 2013. A year later, Atlético held off Barcelona and Madrid to win their first league title since 1996, although they lost to Madrid in the UEFA Champions League final. Took Atlético to another UEFA Champions League final in 2016, which they again lost to Madrid, but collected more silverware two years later with another UEFA Europa League triumph.

UEFA Super Cup: All-time records

• There have been 42 previous UEFA Super Cup finals, including 15 at Monaco's Stade Louis II after the showpiece moved to a one-off match in the principality in 1998. Since 2013, the fixture has been held in a different European city each year: Prague in 2013, Cardiff in 2014, Tbilisi in 2015, Trondheim in 2016 and Skopje in 2017.

• Of the 42 previous editions, the team that won the European Cup have triumphed on 23 occasions, most recently Real Madrid in 2017. Since the UEFA Cup winners began taking part in 2000, following the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup's demise, seven of the 18 finals have been won by the side that lifted the UEFA Cup/UEFA Europa League the preceding May.

• Including 2018, Spain holds the record for the number of times their teams have participated in the competition with 27 entries (Barcelona 9, Real Madrid 7, Sevilla 5, Atlético Madrid 3, Valencia 2, Real Zaragoza 1). England have had 16 (Liverpool 5, Manchester United 4, Chelsea 3, Nottingham Forest 2, Arsenal 1, Aston Villa 1), three more than Italy (AC Milan 7, Juventus 2, Internazionale 1, Parma 1, Lazio 1, Sampdoria 1).

• Spanish clubs have recorded the most victories with 14 (Barcelona 5, Real Madrid 4, Valencia 2, Atlético 2, Sevilla 1), five more than Italy and seven more than England.

• Barcelona's 2015 triumph took them level with Milan on five wins. Real Madrid moved on to four in 2017, one more triumph than Liverpool.

• Six finals have pitted teams from the same country. Milan beat Sampdoria 3-1 on aggregate in 1990 and lost 2-1 to Parma three years later before the all-Spanish affair between Barcelona and Sevilla in 2006 and Real Madrid's 2014 defeat of Sevilla. In 2015, Barcelona beat Sevilla in Tbilisi; Real Madrid beat Sevilla in Trondheim 12 months later.

• Seven finals have been decided in extra time, the beneficiaries being Aston Villa (1982, 3-1 versus Barcelona), Parma (1993, 2-1 versus Milan), Galatasaray (2000, 2-1 golden goal victory versus Real Madrid), Liverpool (2005, 3-1 versus CSKA Moskva),  Barcelona (twice: 2009, 1-0 versus Shakhtar Donetsk; 2015, 5-4 v Sevilla) and Real Madrid (2016, 3-2 v Sevilla).

• The 2013 edition was the first to involve a penalty shoot-out, Bayern beating Chelsea 5-4 on penalties after a 2-2 draw in Prague.

• Barcelona became the first side to score five times in a one-off final with 2015's 5-4 defeat of Sevilla, eclipsing Atlético's 4-1 success over Chelsea in 2012; Liverpool (2001, 2005), Real Madrid (2002, 2016), Sevilla (2006) and Milan (2007) all managed three goals.

• Atlético's 2012 win (4-1) equalled Sevilla's 3-0 defeat of Barcelona in 2006 as the biggest margin of victory in a single-match final.

• There have been four 1-0 results: Chelsea (1998), Lazio (1999) – in the first two one-off finals – Milan (2003) and Barcelona (2009) were the victors.

• There has never been a UEFA Super Cup that finished scoreless after 120 minutes.

• The fastest goal came in the 2015 decider when Éver Banega gave Sevilla a third-minute lead against Barcelona.

• Radamel Falcao (2012, Atlético v Chelsea) and Terry McDermott (1977, Liverpool v Hamburg, second leg) are the only players to have scored three times in one UEFA Super Cup game. McDermott's hat-trick was the quicker, registered in a 17-minute spell either side of the interval.

• The only own goal seen in a UEFA Super Cup final since it permanently became a one-off game in 1998 came from Feyenoord's Patrick Paauwe, 15 minutes into his team's 3-1 reverse to Real Madrid in 2002.

• Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes became the first player sent off in the history of the competition, against Zenit in 2008. Porto's Rolando and Fredy Guarín were both dismissed in 2011.

Competition history
The UEFA Super Cup was not staged in three seasons since its 1973 inception. In 1974, following political problems, Bayern of the Federal Republic of Germany did not play Magdeburg of the German Democratic Republic. Then, in 1981, Liverpool and Dinamo Tbilisi failed to find a date to contest the competition. Following the Heysel tragedy on 29 May 1985, Juventus and Everton did not play the 1985 UEFA Super Cup.
