Spanish Super Cup Prediction: Hot El Clasico Barcelona vs Real Madrid in the Arabian Peninsula

El Clasico

Barcelona face El Clasico duel against Real Madrid in an unusual place. Playing in the semifinals of the 2021/2022 Spanish Super Cup, Barca will face Madrid at the King Fahd International Stadium, Riyad Saudi Arabia, Thursday (13/1/2022) early morning WIB.

This is a hot duel that could be a turning point for Barcelona. But this can also be a duel to strengthen Madrid’s dominance in El Clasico in recent years.

Since December 2019, Barcelona have never tasted victory against Real Madrid. Finally, Barcelona lost 1-2 to Madrid at Camp Nou in the Spanish La Liga match.

Although inferior, Barcelona are reluctant to face this match. Senior defender Gerard Pique reminded Madrid that they would face a different team.

“It’s a title race and we are both very motivated, just as we have seen in the past,” Pique said as quoted by Marca.

Shock?

Barcelona can display a surprising formation against Madrid. Not a change to the 4-3-3 formation, but the line-up of players who might start the match later.

As reported by Marca, Barcelona can bring Pedri and Ferran Torres to Riyad after testing negative for Covid-19. Both players have not played for a long time so it will be a fitness test.

“We have great motivation to lift this trophy. It’s a semi-final, El Clasico will definitely be difficult,” said Pique.
