European champions Real Madrid are taking on UEFA Europa League winners Eintracht Frankfurt in the traditional opener to the new UEFA club competition season.
It will be the sides’ first competitive meeting since the sensational 1960 European Cup final, when Real Madrid won the competition for the fifth time in a row, beating Frankfurt 7-3 at Hampden Park in Glasgow. Alfredo Di Stéfano scored three and Ferenc Puskás four for the winners, though Richard Kress briefly put Frankfurt in front and Erwin Stein struck twice for the German side in the second half.
Celtic great Jimmy Johnstone watched the match and remembered: “It was like a fantasy staged in heaven. I had never seen football like it, nor would I ever again. I’ll recite the names of that Madrid forward line till the day I die.”
Possible starting line-ups
Real Madrid: Courtois; Carvajal, Éder Militão, Alaba, Mendy: Kroos, Casemiro, Modrić: Valverde, Benzema, Vinícius Júnior
Frankfurt: Trapp; Touré, Tuta, N’Dicka; Knauff, Sow, Rode, Lenz; Kamada, Götze; Borré
