Real face up to life without Ronaldo

PSG looking towards 'Making History'

Gareth Bale's stunning overhead kick in the Champions League final has been overlooked in a goal of the season poll conducted by UEFA. Ramos explained that Real Madrid has always been one big family and the club has overseen a host of departures in the past but it has withstood every challenge.

Another player who may also seem like a new signing is Ousmane Dembele, who scored a brilliant goal to earn Barcelona their first trophy of the campaign in Sunday's 2-1 Spanish Super Cup win over Sevilla in Morocco.

The competition has been dominated by Spanish clubs over the course of the last decade, with Champions League holders Real winning three of the last four editions, while Atletico triumphed in 2010 and 2012.

Los Blancos need both Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema to step up a level to cover for Ronaldo's absence and Marco Asensio will also be given a more prominent role.

To find out how to watch a live stream of Wednesday's Real Madrid vs. Atletico Madrid UEFA Super Cup, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. In the United States and Canada Eastern Time Zone that start time will be 3 p.m., noon in the Pacific time zone.

Three-time defending Champions League winners Real are aiming to become the first side to win three-successive Super Cups and also equal the competition record of five titles now held jointly by Milan and Barcelona.

"I know clearly who is going to play, but I will not give you the team", he said.

Atletico, meanwhile, still have a 100% record in the UEFA Super Cup, having won it in 2010 and 2012. Subscribe to our SMS sports service by texting "SPORTS" to 22840.
