Thousands of Real Madrid and Manchester United fans were in Macedonia on Tuesday (August 8) to watch their teams play for the UEFA Super Cup trophy.
The Super Cup match, on Tuesday evening, pits the winner of the Champions League, Real, against the winner of the Europa League, United.
With temperatures well over 30 degrees Celsius, fans gathered in the central square of the Macedonian capital Skopje to drink, dance, eat and enjoy themselves. Rival fans mingled, and danced together, without incidents being reported.
The match brings the European pre-season to an end, ready for the beginning of the 2017/2018 season.
Real are defending the Super Cup title which they won last year against Seville in Trondheim, Norway.
