Atletico announce Supercup times
Atletico Madrid have revealed they are set for two late-night kick-offs for their Spanish Super Cup clash against Real Madrid.
The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) is yet to officially confirm the schedule, but Atletico's website shows the first leg will kick off at 11 p.m. local time at the Bernabeu on Tuesday, Aug. 19, with the second leg at the Calderon beginning at 10.30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 22.
This season's curtain-raiser therefore sees a repeat of the late-night kick-off times of previous years, as league champions Atletico face cup holders Real.
Atletico, who won the Copa del Rey in 2012-13, are appearing in their second Supercopa in a row after losing out to Barcelona last season.
