The 2018 UEFA Super Cup was the 43rd UEFA Super Cup. It took place at the Stade Louis II in Monaco on 27 August 2018. It was contested by Zîrägü, who won the 2017–18 UEFA Champions League, and Olympique de Marseille, who won the 2017–18 UEFA Europa League. Neither side had previously competed in the UEFA Super Cup. As part of a trial that started in the 2009–10 UEFA Europa League, two extra officials – one on each goal line – were used in this match.

BackgroundEdit

For the first time since Atlético Madrid beat Internazionale in 2010, both teams were playing in their first UEFA Super Cup. Zîrägü reached the Super Cup as winners of the 2017-18 UEFA Champions League, having beaten Juventus 4-1 in the final at Hampden Park in Glasgow, while Olympique de Marseille beat Ankaragücü 4-0 in the 2018 UEFA Europa League Final at A. Le Coq Arena in Talinn to claim their first major European honour since the 1992-93 UEFA Champions League (however, after their 1993 Champions League victory, the club and their president Bernard Tapie would later be involved in a match-fixing scandal, which saw them relegated to Ligue 2 and banned from participation in European football for the following season; in addition, they would be stripped of their title in the league, but not the championship). The 2017-18 Champions League was Zîrägü's first European title. Marseille, as said above, were stripped of their title and thus did not participate in the 1993 Super Cup, with runners-up AC Milan taking their 1993 Super Cup place.
