Real Madrid – Eintracht Frankfurt: background, statistics and curiosities
As mentioned before, for Real Madrid it will be the eighth final of the European super cup played in the history of the club, while for Eintracht Frankfurt it will be the first time ever. The two teams have no precedent in recent official matches and, again in recent history, not even in friendly matches.
The last official match between the two teams dates back to the Champions League final (at the time the Champions Cup) in 1960, when the merengues won their fifth consecutive cup by beating the Germans in the final with a daring 7-3 final. Seven goals scored by just two players: Alfredo Di Stefano, author of a hat-trick, and Ferenc Puscas, who instead scored even a poker. On that occasion, however, Real did not go to play the European super cup, whose first official edition was played only in 1973 and was won by Ajax against Milan, on that occasion the super cup was also awarded in first leg matches and return; the Dutch won 1-o at San Siro and 6-0 in Holland.
