Barcelona have mammoth task ahead of them tonight when they meet Real Madrid in the second leg of the Spanish Super Cup, this after losing 3 – 1 in the first leg at Camp Nou against the formidable Real Madrid outfit.
Real Madrid are favourites to win, even without their super star Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been banned for five matches for pushing an official.
Barcelona’s midfield will have to work extra hard to stand any chance of upsetting Zizou’s Blancos. Isco and Toni Kroos outplayed Raktic and Iniesta in the first leg, which is a concerning sign for Barcelona especially after losing Neymar to PSG earlier in the month.
Latest Team News: Barcelona will be without Iniesta due to muscle tissue injury, Roberto is likely to take his place.
Latest Team News: Cristiano Ronaldo’s appeal to play in tonight’s Super Cup clash was rejected.
Enersto Vayverde had this to say, “Nothing is impossible, obviously it isn’t the same thing to play a game defending a result but we have to attack it and still aim to go there and win the title”
Kick-Off: 22:55pm CAT on Supersport 7 (South Africa)
