After conquering the UEFA champions league and Europa league respectively, Real Madrid and Manchester United are set to contest for the Super Cup.

The Tuesday night fixture pitches Jose Mourinho against his former team, Real Madrid; and also pitches Cristiano Ronaldo against his former team, Manchester United.

Although Mourinho has a rich collection of trophies, he has never won the Super Cup.

Many are keen to see how the new signings will fare after showing glimpse of brilliance in pre-season friendly games.

Line up for both teams

Real Madrid: Navas; Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo; Casemiro, Kroos, Modric; Isco, Benzema, Bale

Manchester United: De Gea; Valencia, Lindelof, Smalling, Darmian; Herrera, Matic, Pogba; Mkhitaryan, Lukaku, Lingard

Man United are in red tonight while Real Madrid are in all black. Lukaku already caused Real Madrid some problems after jumping with Varane, but Navas managed to just do enough.

3′ CHANCE! Wonderful chance for Bale as the ball drops onto his foot inside the Man United box, but his effort is just over the bar.

4′ The Welshman is causing most of the trouble for Man United as Real apply the most pressure early on

7′ Pogba shows wonderful legwork in an advanced area before feeding Lingard, but the England international is bundled out at the final moment. Real Madrid then break down the other end with Bale as this match continues to excite in the early moments.

9′ Mkhitaryan goes down just outside the Real Madrid box under pressure from Ramos, but the referee sees no foul.
