 Match Preview

Real Madrid vs Barcelona prediction, Old enemies Barcelona and Real Madrid are preparing to duel at the King Fahd Stadium in Saudi Arabia for the semi-finals of the Spanish Super Cup.
Either Athletic Bilbao or Atletico Madrid await the winner of Wednesday's match, with the final set set to take place on Sunday evening.
Despite welcoming a number of their big hitters back into the fold after the devastating coronavirus outbreak, Barcelona were still unstoppable in league action at the weekend, as Granada came back to save a point against the 10-man Blaugrana on Saturday night.
After Luuk de Jong scored Barcelona's first goal and sensational youngster Gavi was shown a yellow card for two fouls, Granada's Antonio Puertas scored for his side in the 89th minute as a frustrated Xavi watched his side pull one point back. to base.
La Blaugrana can forgo any kind of title race this season, although the race to compete in Europe is one they are passionate about, and a priceless mid-season trophy could present itself for 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 with a 3-2 scoreline against Athletic Bilbao last season – for which Lionel Messi was sent off – and they also lost in a five-goal thriller to Atletico Madrid last season. previously.
Xavi's men do enter the contest on a six-match unbeaten streak across all tournaments, but they have kept just one clean sheet in their last nine competitive fixtures across all competitions, and Real Madrid have a 300-goal hero ready to expose those weaknesses. .
Joining an elite group of players who have scored 300 goals for Real Madrid, Karim Benzema once again stole the show for Real Madrid, who clinched a 4-1 win over Valencia in front of their own fans on Saturday.
Benzema's 300th goal for the club came via the penalty spot in the 43rd minute before Vinicius Junior capped another fine display with two goals, and Benzema would seal the result without a doubt with a fine spin and finish in the dying embers.
The former Lyon man has now followed in the footsteps of fellow club members Alfredo Di Stefano, Raul and Cristiano Ronaldo, with his goals on the day bringing Real Madrid one step closer to top-flight glory before they turned their attention to the process. in the Middle East.
Real Madrid's tally of 11 Super Cup titles can only be surpassed by Barcelona - with their most recent success coming against city rivals Atletico in 2020 - but they also lost to Athletic Bilbao in the semi-finals of last year's competition.
The first El Clasico of the season ended with Los Blancos winning 2-1 at Camp Nou in October – their fourth successive win over Barcelona – and Real Madrid also winning 5-1 over two legs in the 2017-18 Spanish Super Cup final.
Barcelona defender Eric Garcia was withdrawn with a hamstring injury in the weekend's draw with Granada, and the former Manchester City man will now face five weeks out.
Garcia joins Sergi Roberto and Martin Braithwaite in the treatment room, while COVID-19 positive duo Pedri and Ferran Torres will also miss out, but Frenkie de Jong, Ronald Araujo and Ansu Fati are on the squad list.
Gavi's suspension would instead carry over to the next La Liga game, and Clement Lenglet would be ready to replace Garcia at the heart of the back four.
As for Real Madrid, Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that Mariano Diaz and Gareth Bale are his only fitness concerns for the semi-finals, with Dani Carvajal and Luka Jovic fit and eager to leave.
Carvajal could go straight back into the team past Lucas Vazquez if he is deemed fit enough, with the rest of Ancelotti's back line remaining unchanged.
It would be surprising to see the former Everton boss make so many changes from the side that beat Valencia, with Federico Valverde - who famously brought down Alvaro Morata when he kept a clean sheet in the 2020 final - taking his place on the bench. .(red)
