Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid - where and when
This year, the UEFA Super Cup will be held in Estonia, under the lights of the Lilleküla Stadium in Tallinn.
Taking place on Wednesday, August 15, kick-off is at 10pm local time (or 9pm in Madrid), which is 8pm BST, 3pm ET, 12pm PT and 5am Thursday morning AET.
Pitching the winners of the Champions League against the Europa League holders, the UEFA Super Cup is always a glamorous and intriguing curtain-raiser for the new season. But the 2018 contest is made even more special by the fact it's a Madrid derby, and we're here to tell you how you can live stream the 2018 Super Cup match from wherever you are in the world.
Real Madrid are beginning a new era without club icons Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo, which brings a sense of the unknown on and off the pitch. Coach Julen Lopetegui can put his acrimonious Spain sacking behind him by picking up his first piece of silverware. And with the shackles now off, Gareth Bale up front in Ronaldo's absence could have the ultimate weapon to make the difference against their city rivals.
Atletico Madrid will be happy with their summer's business though, with Antoine Griezmann staying and the likes of Thomas Lemar and Nikola Kaliic added to the ranks. Will their firepower up front have enough to trouble the formidable Raphael Varane and Sergio Ramos in defence?
You can find out by following the instructions below and grabbing a live stream of the Super Cup final between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. Just keep scrolling down for the info.
