Hey, there's a Barcelona match coming up! The Blaugrana will try to pick up some silverware on Tuesday in the Catalan Super Cup against Espanyol, in the second installment of a preseason trophy that takes place in October, for some weird reason.

This is still the local derby, though, and it's an important game. Luis Enrique will give rest to 10 first team players, but some reserves and Barça B stars will get valuable minutes in their bids to impress the manager, and they'll have to be at their best against a strong Espanyol side.

Below is the match guide for you! All the info you need on the team, including the lineup predictions, which are impossible but we gave it a try! If you're planning on watching the game, then you need to know this stuff:
