Spanish Supercopa Final Preview

The Spanish Supercopa Final this weekend features neither the defending league champions nor the holders of the Copa del Rey which is just one of many big differences from previous editions of this competition. It does though have the potential to be a very watchable game as these old Madrid rivals meet in yet another Final in yet another country.

While their meetings don’t always produce many goals, there is usually no shortage of tension when these clubs meet and if the Semi-Finals are anything to go by, this could be well worth tuning in for. Atletico Madrid emerged victorious on Thursday after a thrilling 2nd Half against Barcelona as Diego Simeone’s side came from 2-1 down to win 3-2 with Angel Correa netting the winner with just four minutes to play. Real Madrid had 24 hours earlier eased past Valencia to claim their place in the Final.

Zinedine Zidane opted to pack the midfield in that game with Luka Modric and Isco both starting and scoring in behind Luka Jovic who led the line. Toni Kroos got the other goal to ease worries that Real Madrid would not pose much of a goal threat with Karim Benzema out of the competition through injury. Los Blancos may opt for a similar approach here with Gareth Bale also expected to miss out again.

As for Atleti, it’s likely to be the same again. They were on the back-foot for much of the 90 minutes against Barcelona but they showed plenty of character to stay in the game and win it at the death. Atleti are in good overall form now with 5 straight wins in all competitions and no matter what the setting, you can always guarantee Simeone’s Atleti will put 100% into it and Real Madrid will need to be ready for that.

Spanish Supercopa Final Predictions

Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw

These sides are such familiar foes that it’s perhaps no surprise that 5 of the last 6 meetings have been drawn. It’s hard to see this being anything other than a pretty evenly contested game. Real Madrid may try to pack the midfield again given their lack of options up top and could dominate possession but Atleti will be confident having claimed a rare win over Barcelona on Thursday. This one could go the distance.
