Real Madrid vs. Atletico Madrid, 2014 Spanish Super Cup – SBNation.com

With Atléti talisman Diego Costa sold to Chelsea, new striker Mario Mandžukić will be under heavy pressure to replace the goal-scoring that the fiery Brazilian turned Spaniard provided. Mandžukić is definitely a different player than Costa, and he lacks the individual brilliance that Atléti fans got used to seeing from their departed striker — the Croatian is a hard working goal poacher with excellent aerial skills, but he’s less of an athlete.With the likes of Arda Turan, Antoine Griezmann and Mario Suárez running around behind him and firing balls in to the box, there’s every reason to believe Mandžukić will fit right in. That said, he’s still got a lot to prove. A goal or two against Real Madrid in the Super Cup would certainly help. via – SBNation.com
