Juan wants his 5th cup with United
7 Aug 2017
Real Madrid is the obstacle to win the European Supercup this Tuesday, one of the few titles Mata hasn't got. The National Stadium of Filipo II of Macedonia will host the match.
Very few trophies aren't in Juan Mata's spectacular track record. The Asturian, a club and national team trophy collector, wants to conquer the European Supercup this Tuesday at Skopje (20.45 local time), one of the few trophies he hasn't got. The National Stadium of Filipo II will host this spectacular match against Real Madrid, current champions of Europe.
"They are the ones everyone wants to beat; they have a great team, they won league in Spain", said Mata. "We know how good they are but United has great history and record of titles. We won three trophies last season. One day, sooner rather than later, we want to be where they were last season, in a Champions League final, and hopefully winning it".
