Preseason is finally over, and real football returns. For Barcelona and Real Madrid, the two biggest teams and rivals in the world, a title is on the line as the two clubs play two matches in four days for the Spanish Super Cup.
Madrid won La Liga and Barça conquered the Spanish Cup last season, and while Los Blancos also won the UEFA Champions League and come into this match as favorites, it would be silly to take Barça for granted.
The Blaugrana did lose Neymar, but they now have a very promising manager in Ernesto Valverde and still have Lionel Messi and Luis Suárez in the team. Those two superstars can still win games without their former partner, and even though the ‘MSN’ trio is now part of history, Messi and Suárez are still incredible players and will give Madrid a run for their money.
These two teams already met this season in the Miami Clásico, with Barça coming out on top with a very entertaining 3-2 victory. That was only a friendly, however, so expect a very intense affair with both teams giving their all for the win.
This is El Clásico, so please don’t miss it. The first leg of the Supercopa de España is on Sunday at Camp Nou, and this promises to be a great match. Watch it.
