Cruzeiro forward Julio Baptista believes Real Madrid are favourites for the UEFA Super Cup
Cruzeiro forward Julio Baptista believes Real Madrid are favourites ahead of Sevilla to win the UEFA Super Cup.
The 32 year-old, who has played for both sides, expects Los Rojiblancos to cause problems and frustrate Real, though maintains they must play a perfect game to have a chance of being successful.
“Madrid have a strong squad and they’re favourites, although Sevilla managed to have a spectacular year,” he said, as reported by Football Espana.
“I hope it continues in this game and we see good football.
“Sevilla have to play perfectly, with no errors. They must make an awesome game to win and that’s how it always was, even when I was there.
“We knew we had a team with great players and the only way to beat a team like Madrid was to play at the limit, 100%, and not do anything wrong.
“Sevilla has never gone easy against Madrid, one of the worst teams for them to face as Sevilla are an uncomfortable opponent. They always fight.”
