The 2014 UEFA Super Cup was the 39th edition of the UEFA Super Cup, an annual football match organised by UEFA and contested by the reigning champions of the two main European club competitions, the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League. The match featured two Spanish teams Real Madrid and Sevilla, the winners of the 2013–14 UEFA Champions League and the 2013–14 UEFA Europa League respectively.[2] It was played at the Cardiff City Stadium in Cardiff, Wales,[3] on 12 August 2014.[4] The date was moved from Friday in late August in previous years, to mid-August starting this year, following the removal of the August international friendly date in the new FIFA International Match Calendar.[3]

Real Madrid won 2–0 to win their second UEFA Super Cup, with both goals by Cristiano Ronaldo.[5]

Venue[edit]

The Cardiff City Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, hosted the match.

The Cardiff City Stadium was announced as the venue of the Super Cup at the UEFA Executive Committee meeting on 30 June 2012.[3] This was the first UEFA Super Cup hosted in Wales since the match was moved away from its long-term base of Monaco in 2013.

The Cardiff City Stadium opened in July 2009 on the site of the Cardiff Athletics Stadium. It is the home stadium of Cardiff City. The stadium had a capacity of 33,000 after expansion work.[6]

England's Mark Clattenburg was appointed by UEFA as the referee of the match, accompanied by an all-English team of officials: assistant referees Simon Beck and Stuart Burt, fourth official Darren England, and additional assistant referees Michael Oliver and Anthony Taylor.[8]

Match[edit]

Team selection[edit]

Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso was suspended for the match, due to breaches of conduct in the Champions League Final, for which he was also suspended.[10]

New signings Toni Kroos and James Rodríguez made their competitive debuts for Real Madrid; another new signing, Keylor Navas, was an unused substitute. Sevilla gave competitive debuts to Denis Suárez, Aleix Vidal and Grzegorz Krychowiak, as well as substitute Iago Aspas. Nicolás Pareja and Daniel Carriço represented Sevilla for the first time since their loans were made permanent.[11]
