Real Madrid: Close to winning the Super Cup (Recent Form: WWDLLD)
Real Madrid got a very good result on Sunday (3:1) at Camp Nou, so ‘Los Blancos’ are favourites to win the Spanish Super Cup. Real Madrid take on Barcelona on Wednesday at Santiago Bernabeu in the second-leg. “Anything is possible. In football nothing is certain. We’ll have to play very well because Barcelona can cause you problems at any time. In the first-leg they had chances so we´ll have to play well. We did well in the first-leg, but we have to play the whole tie until the end. They’re a team with a lot of pride and they're going to come here wanting to turn the game around. We have to be prepared. We’re not going to let our guard down because we expect a difficult game,” said coach Zinedine Zidane. Ronaldo is suspended.
Probable line-ups: Keylor; Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo; Casemiro, Modric, Kroos, Isco; Bale, Benzema
Barcelona: Need reinforcements (Recent Form: LWDWWW)
The absence of Neymar was clearly noticeable a couple of days ago and the Catalan outfit need to sign quality footballers in order to improve. On Thursday, Barcelona must perform better in order to get a positive result and players look ahead to this match. “We are two good sides and everything can happen. We have to be spot on defensively. It won’t be easy to score 3 goals here, but we’ve already done it many times in the past,” said Busquets.
Probable line-ups: Ter Stegen; Vidal, Pique, Umtiti, Alba; Busquets, Rakitic, Iniesta; Messi, Deulofeu, Suarez
NOWGOAL BETTING VERDICT:
Summing up, I think that this might be an interesting clash with a couple of goals. Barcelona need to attack and take risks, so Real Madrid should get their chances on counter attacks. In my opinion a few goals may be scored in this match.
