Team News

Real Madrid
Barcelona
  • Nacho Fernandez started at centre-back next to Antonio Rudiger and should keep his place in the final.
  • Despite Joselu being in among the goals, he is likely to be relied upon as an impact substitute.
  • Ferland Mendy returns from his injury and could feature from the bench.
  • Raphinha was taken off in the semi-final with a thigh injury and should be replaced by the youngest scorer in the competition's history, Lamine Yamal.
  • Pedri returns from injury and should go straight into the XI.

Prediction

  • Barcelona will hope to relive their glory of last year's Super Copa final on Sunday, where they defeated their Clasico rivals 3-1.
  • Real scored five goals in the semi-final against Atletico, beating their local rivals for the first time this season, and are in red-hot form going into this one.
  • Pedri featured for El Blaugrana from the bench in their semi-final against Osasuna and manager Xavi told press in the post-match that his star midfielder 'is ready'.
