Fans who watch Real Madrid vs. Sevilla live online in the UEFA Super Cup 2014 will have the opportunity to see a new and improved Blancos after several important additions to the team this summer. Manager Carlo Ancelotti is confident his pupils are ready to take on Sevilla.
The UEFA Super Cup is played between the previous season’s winner of the UEFA Champions League and Europa League. In this case Real Madrid, the overwhelming favorite (which won La Decima, their 10th title in June) and Sevilla (which beat Portugal’s club Benfica in May) will face-off in Cardiff, Wales.
Anytime Real Madrid comes to town, there is all sorts of excitement, but for Welsh fans this Super Cup is special because of a very important reason. One of their own — midfielder Gareth Bale — is coming home and has a good chance to earn some more hardware with Real Madrid in front of his friends and family.
If you watch Real Madrid vs. Sevilla live online you will witness whether all the money spent this summer by the Spanish club has been worth it. Moreover, you will be able to see the debut of a couple of the biggest stars signed by Madrid, which has been busy boosting their line-up with some big names.
Cristiano Ronaldo is not the only star in Real anymore; he has some company after Germany’s Toni Kroos and Colombian superstar James Rodriguez joined Ancelotti’s team. The manager is confident ahead of the match:
“The team had a good season. It won the Europa League with a group of players who worked well as a team and they deserved to win the title. Sevilla has changed a bit this year. In some ways it is an unknown side at the moment because they have lost some important players and others have arrived. We’ll see what happens.”
Those who watch Real Madrid vs. Sevilla live online will see if Cristiano Ronaldo has recovered from the injuries that slowed him down at the end of last season and during the World Cup. Last week he seemed to be in great shape while working out with the rest of his teammates.
Sevilla coach, Unai Emery, thinks it’s laughable that some are assigning chances to his team. He has no allusions as to the caliber of the rival they face in the Super Cup, even if Ancelotti’s team hasn’t been 100 percent. “How can we possibly be favorites against Real Madrid?” the skipper said.
