Watch Real Madrid vs. Atletico Madrid live online in what is a repeat of the UEFA Champions League final last season, which Los Blancos took convincingly, 4-1. Both teams have a bone to pick even though Real took the UCL title and Atletico finished La Liga in first place.
Manager Carlo Ancelotti is working to find out what works best for his improved team, which added Colombian superstar and World Cup Golden Boot winner James Rodriguez, World Cup champion Toni Kroos from Germany, and Costa Rica sensation goalkeeper Keylor Navas. Last week, things worked out well for Los Blancos in their UEFA Super Cup victory against Sevilla, marked by Ronaldo’s brace.
Now it’s a matter of seeing if Ancelotti can manage to continue the promising start of the season to win more hardware for the legendary Spanish club. Watch Real Madrid vs. Atletico Madrid live online and witness how the fierce rivals square off in their first match-up of the season.
Even though Ronaldo, Bale, and all the new additions to Real will be the focus on Tuesday, people will also have their eyes fixed on goalkeeper and Real Madrid captain, Iker Casillas. The veteran goalie had a devastating World Cup and has looked shaky ever since, so he has a lot to prove, not only to fans, but to Ancelotti, who is sticking by him and making him his starter for the season, even with Navas in Real’s ranks.
Aside from the always flashy Cristiano Ronaldo, Welshman Gareth Bale has made quite an impressive debut in his new season with Los Blancos. If you watch Real Madrid vs. Atletico Madrid live online, you will see just how much more comfortable Bale is with the rest of his team and how well he and Ronaldo collaborate on the field.
Even though Real Madrid is favorite to win the first leg of the Supercup because of its star power, Ancelotti is not dismissing the danger Atletico brings to his team and he will shuffle things around for Tuesday’s match:
“There will be a fantastic atmosphere in the Santiago Bernabéu and our fans are going to help us.”
“Atlético have changed a little because they have signed some big players. Their style has not changed and it will be a difficult match, as it was last season. I am not going to play the same team in both matches. While some will play tomorrow, I’ll change it a little on Friday.”
Watch Real Madrid vs. Ateltico Madrid live online here at 3 pm ET, from the Santiago Bernabéu.
