Real Madrid Set For Barcelona Clash In Spanish Cup

Real Madrid Barcelona Marco Asensio Transfer News

The Spanish Super Cup has a special value, and even more against Barcelona.

Tottenham Hotspur were believed to be circling at the start of 2017, and Isco regularly hinted to the press that he could leave Real Madrid at the end of the 2016-17 season.

Coach Ernesto Valverde will get his first proper taste of the scorching rivalry between Barcelona and Real Madrid when the two giants of Spanish soccer meet on Sunday at the Nou Camp in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup.

The 21-year-old versatile star rose to fame in the last campaign under the management of Zinedine Zidane and therefore, attracted interest from big teams.

Just four months later he guided Real Madrid to the Champions League title after beating fierce rivals Atletico Madrid on penalties. Victories over Sevilla, Celta Vigo and Malaga saw Los Blancos take the La Liga title away from Barcelona, before a 4-1 win over Juventus made it back-to-back Champions League crowns.




You can change a player, as I said Neymar is a player you can't find someone like him, but the ones who play will do it fine and that's it.

Barca are still reeling from the loss of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain for a world record €222 million (Dh964.6m) with their attempts to land a replacement in Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele of Borussia Dortmund so far falling short. That match, however, was more about paying homage to the victims of the plane crash that decimated Chapecoense past year than warming up for Madrid.

With Neymar gone, Barcelona will look to Lionel Messi to repeat his outstanding performance from the last competitive "clasico" played against Madrid in April.

"United are very good, but we were the best team and we have a spectacular squad with a promising future".
