Despite the absence of star striker Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid look ready for Tuesday’s Super Cup clash against Manchester United.

The UEFA Super Cup clash between the Champions League winners and the Europa Cup victors will be played in Skopje, Republic of Macedonia.

After appearing in court and a break following the FIFA Confederations Cup tournament, Ronaldo only returned to training at the weekend, meaning it would be a major surprise if coach Zinedine Zidane were to include the 32-year-old against his former club.

"He needed to rest. He has had his holidays and that was important," said Zidane of the man whose 2 goals helped propel Madrid to a 4-1 victory over Juventus in the Champions League final in Cardiff two months ago.



"Real Madrid is a team, a club, an institution that has hunger. We all know where we are and when you finish a season like last year winning, it helps you try to do the same thing coming into the new season," Zidane -- whose team have Barcelona to come at the weekend in the Spanish Super Cup -- said in a UEFA interview.
