The 2018 UEFA Super Cup will be the 43rd 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 will feature two Spanish sides, Real Madrid, the winners of the 2017–18 UEFA Champions League and the defending champions having won the previous two editions, and Atlético Madrid, the winners of the 2017–18 UEFA Europa League. It will be played at the A. Le Coq Arena in Tallinn, Estonia, on 15 August 2018, and it will be the first European club final held in Estonia.

In March 2018, UEFA announced that a fourth substitution will be allowed in extra time and that the number of substitutes has been increased from 7 to 12. The kick-off time has also been changed from 20:45 CEST to 21:00 CEST.

Atlético Madrid won the match 4–2 after extra time for their third UEFA Super Cup title.

This will be the fifth all-Spanish Super Cup, and the fourth in the last five years. This will also be the first Super Cup to be played by two teams from the same city. A Spanish side has appeared in the Super Cup for nine of the previous ten years. Additionally, as both teams are from Spain, the Super Cup will be won by a Spanish team for the ninth time in ten seasons and for five consecutive years.

Real Madrid are aiming to win their fifth Super Cup, which would tie them with record-holders Barcelona and Milan, while having won the last two editions, have the chance to become the first team to win three consecutive Super Cups. On the other hand, Atlético Madrid, having won the previous two Super Cups they played in, have the chance to become the first team to win their first three Super Cups.

This will be the tenth Madrid Derby match in European competitions, with all previous nine matches having been in the European Cup/UEFA Champions League. Real Madrid hold the advantage with 5 wins, 2 draws and 2 defeats, and have never been knocked out by Atlético Madrid either over two legs or in a one-match decider.

Venue

The A. Le Coq Arena was announced as the final venue on 15 September 2016, following the decision of the UEFA Executive Committee meeting in Athens, Greece. The stadium will be known as the Lilleküla Arena due to UEFA's sponsorship regulations.
