This will be the fourth time in the last five editions that the UEFA Super Cup will be contested by two Spanish sides, but an all-Madrid final – and indeed a one-city UEFA Super Cup – is a first.

Atlético have met Real Madrid nine times in UEFA competition with the record W2 D2 L5, though they have yet to beat their city rivals in a final or to eliminate them from a UEFA competition.

Real Madrid have won four of their six UEFA Super Cup games – including the most recent two. Having become the first side to win the UEFA Champions League in three consecutive seasons, they could become the first club to win three UEFA Super Cups in a row.

Atlético have a 100% record in the UEFA Super Cup, winning the 2010 and 2012 editions as UEFA Europa League holders. They overcame Inter Milan 2-0 in 2010 and Chelsea 4-1 in 2012.

Tallinn follows in the footsteps of Prague (2013), Cardiff (2014), Tbilisi (2015), Trondheim (2016) and Skopje (2017) as cities to be awarded the UEFA Super Cup since the fixture switched from its once permanent home of Monaco. The decision to play the match in Tallinn was made at a UEFA Executive Committee meeting in Athens in September 2016.

The ground – also known for sponsorship reasons as A Le Coq Arena – has a capacity of 10,000, which is set to be expanded for the 2018 UEFA Super Cup.
