This year’s edition of the Spanish Super Cup sees an El Clasico match up for the first of the semi finals on Wednesday.

The Supercopa de Espana is a four-team event that is being hosted in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

It is Real Madrid who are the favourites for this match as they face up against their old rivals. The winner will face either Atletico Madrid or Athletic Bilbao in the final.

Barcelona Preview – Barcelona making progress?

There has been a six-match undefeated streak of form in all competitions that Barcelona have put together.

There were three wins for the Blaugrana in that one and each of those were by a one-goal margin.

Barcelona’s wins in that recent W3 D3 were against opposition not regarded as strong as Real Madrid.

In the match outright for Wednesday’s match, Barcelona are big 13/5 underdogs* (odds recorded 1702 GMT on January 10th, 2022 at William Hill).

It hasn’t been a very convincing season from them of course.

Looking at their extended form, Barca have won only three of their last eight matches in all competitions.

One of those wins was against lower-tiered opposition Linares Deportivo in the Copa del Rey earlier this month.

Barcelona were involved in the Spanish Super Cup twelve months ago, and they beat Real Sociedad on penalties in the semi finals.

Then they lost in extra time in the final against Athletic Bilbao.

This does look like an unfavourable tough task for Barcelona on Wednesday night as they don’t particularly look like a great threat in front of the goal.

Only in two of their last seven matches (not including the Copa del Rey) have Barcelona managed to score more than one goal in a game.

The other side of things is worth taking a look at as well because Barcelona have one clean sheet in their last nine fixtures in all competitions.

So there are clear problems at both ends as they try to rebuild under former player Xavi.

Barcelona are the most successful club in the history of the Supercopa having won it 13 times before. They’ve also been runners-up eleven times.

Looking at the recent head to head record that Barca have taken against Real Madrid, it doesn’t look great for the Catalans.

They have lost the last four in a row against Real Madrid and are winless in five against them.


Real Madrid Preview – Los Blancos look the more likely

There has been much stronger form produced by Real Madrid this season than Barca.

For starters, they have won all but two of their last fifteen matches in all competitions (D1 L1).

At one point during the season, they strung together a highly impressive ten-match winning streak in all competitions.

So they are understandably the 10/11 odds-on favourites in football betting* (odds recorded 1702 GMT on January 10th, 2022 at William Hill).

They look the more likely of the two to come out on top.

Real Madrid have scored at least two goals in three of their last four matches.

So they look a much bigger threat in front of the goal than their opponents do.

Real Madrid also looks a lot better in defence for the large part.

But that defence has just wobbled a little bit with no clean sheet in four. That was after a run of five clean sheets in six.

Earlier this season in La Liga, Real Madrid claimed a 2-1 win at Barcelona.

Given that Real Madrid are the favourites for this one, the Real Madrid to win & Both Teams To Score option is at 12/5* (odds recorded 1702 GMT on January 10th, 2022 at William Hill).

Both teams have scored in each of the last three El Clasico meetings.

Madrid have scored at least two goals in each of their last four against Barcelona as well.

So they just look as if they are going to have the edge here.

In last year’s Supercopa Real Madrid were surprisingly defeated in the semi-finals by Athletic Bilbao.

It’s hard to make a case for Barcelona taking a win against a much, much stronger rival. They don’t look too capable of keeping Real Madrid at arm’s length.
