Julen Lopetegui will take charge of his first competitive game for Real Madrid

Atletico Madrid finally got their own back on Real Madrid in European competition by snatching a 4-2 win over their city rivals on Wednesday (Aug 15) to lift the UEFA Super Cup for a third time after midfielders Saul Niguez and Koke struck in extra-time.

Assuming the starting eleven looks something like this, Courtois, Carvajal, Ramos Varane, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Asensio/Isco, Bale and Benzema, Real Madrid's back-up unit is made up of player who have played very few minutes in recent years aside from Nacho, Lucas Vazquez, Marco Asensio or Isco.

"We can not talk about Cristiano to cover things up, because any team would miss Cristiano. We have full confidence in our coach", he said after the game.

England v India: third Test, day one
Woakes is retained after his magnificent effort as is batsman Ollie Pope who made a decent debut with his 28 at Lord's. The build-up has been dominated by Ben Stokes , who missed the second Test as he was standing trial for affray.

Since joining Real Madrid from Tottenham in 2013, in a deal worth around £85million, Bale has gone on to win a number of major honours for the Spanish giants - including a La Liga title, a Copa Del Rey and four Champions League crowns.

"The arrival of good players guarantees good individuals but not a better team until we are all working in the same direction", Simeone said, who is suspended from the touchline for the match after being sent off in the Europa League semi-final against Arsenal. "Those in charge of the club will decide whether or not we need more signings", added the Brazilian.
