On Wednesday, the Spanish Super Cup will feature another edition of El Clasico when Barcelona faces archrival Real Madrid in Riyadh. The two La Liga giants have experienced contrasting fortunes in this season’s campaign, and they will go into this game with formidable squads.
At the top of the La Liga standings, Real Madrid has been in impressive form. In this season’s first meeting between the two sides, Los Blancos have already won convincingly and will aim for an even bigger victory this week.
Currently, Barcelona is in sixth place in the league table and hasn’t been at their best this season. Since Xavi’s appointment, the Catalan giants have shown improvement and will have to play out of their skin to trouble their opponents on Wednesday.
