Eintracht Frankfurt to play Real Madrid in 2022 UEFA Super Cup

Eintracht Frankfurt will face Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup in Helsinki. 

The German club won the Europa League crown following a 1-0 win over Scottish giants Rangers in a flash played in Seville.

The win guaranteed them a spot in the Champions League next season. 

Real Madrid, on the other hand, won their 14th Champions League crown on Saturday night after beating Liverpool 1-0 at the Stade de France. 

It will be Eintracht's first appearance in the UEFA Super Cup, with the spot going to the winners of the now-defunct UEFA Cup Winners' Cup when Frankfurt won the 1979/80 UEFA Cup.

Oliver Glasner's side can become the second German team to win the Super Cup - after Bayern (2013, 2020) if they can get the better of Carlo Ancelotti's side. 

The traditional continental curtain-raiser for the new season will take place at Finland's Helsinki Olympic Stadium and will see the country host its first UEFA club competition final.
