Match Preview

Old foes Barcelona and Real Madrid prepare to lock horns at the King Fahd Stadium in Saudi Arabia for the semi-finals of the Spanish Super Cup. Either Athletic Bilbao or Atletico Madrid lie in wait for the winners of Wednesday's tie, with the final set to take place on Sunday night.

Despite welcoming a number of their big-hitters back to the fold following a devastating coronavirus outbreak, Barcelona still came unstuck in league action at the weekend, as Granada rallied to rescue a point against the 10-man Blaugrana on Saturday night.

After Luuk de Jong had struck first for Barcelona and teenage sensation Gavi was sent for an early bath for two bookable offences, Granada's Antonio Puertas struck for his side in the 89th minute of the contest as a frustrated Xavi witnessed his side take just one point back to base.

La Blaugrana can forget about any sort of title charge this season, although the race to compete in Europe is one that they are very much in, and a priceless piece of mid-season silverware could present itself to Xavi's men in Saudi Arabia this month.

Barcelona have claimed a record 13 titles in the Spanish Super Cup but found themselves on the wrong end of a 3-2 scoreline against Athletic Bilbao last term - during which Lionel Messi saw red - and they also lost a five-goal thriller to Atletico Madrid the season before.

We say: Barcelona [1]-[0] Real Madrid
