Spanish Super Cup final spot at stake in El Clásico clash

PREVIEW. 12/01/2022

Real Madrid take on Barcelona at Riyadh's King Fahd Stadium (8pm CET).

This week will see one team secure the first piece of silverware of the season, the Spanish Super Cup. Two games separate Real Madrid from glory as the Whites open the competition with El Clásico. Our team take on Barcelona in the semi-finals at Riyadh's King Fahd Stadium (8pm CET; 10pm local time) with a place in the final at stake.

The showpiece will feature either Atlético, who Madrid overcame to claim their latest Spanish Super Cup crown in the 2020, or Athletic, who our team faced last time round. This is the third year in a row in which the madridistas are involved in the Super Cup, a competition the club has won 11 times throughout its history.

In the build-up, Carlos Ancelotti and Toni Kroos were on media duty. The coach declared that, "We enjoy being involved in these kinds of games”, whilst the German midfielder commented that, "We want to win every competition we're involved in”. The Real Madrid squad list for the competition features all members of the squad, barring Gareth Bale and Mariano.

Asensio stunners
Real Madrid and Barcelona's last Spanish Super Cup meeting holds sweet memories for the madridista faithful. The sides clashed in the final in August 2017 and our team emerged victorious, winning both the encounters at the Camp Nou and the Santiago Bernabéu courtesy of stunning strikes from Marco Asensio. Real Madrid will tonight be aiming to claim another win to secure a spot in the final.
