Real Madrid and Barcelona resume hostilities tonight in the final of the Spanish Super Cup.

Saudi Arabia will host another El Clasico as the two eternal rivals battle for the first real trophy of the season.


Barca ran out winners last year thanks to a 3-1 win and Xavi may need a similar result tonight, with his side trailing both Madrid and Girona in the LaLiga title race.

Raphinha was left injured on Thursday after coming off in the first half of the 2-0 semi-final win over Osasuna, although Pedri will start after being introduced from the bench.

Madrid, meanwhile, have Federico Valverde at their disposal, despite the Uruguayan midfielder being forced off during their thrilling 5-3 win over bitter rivals Atletico on Wednesday.

Dani Carvajal is also fit despite missing training due to muscle fatigue ahead of the Supercopa de Espana.

Real Madrid start as XI: Lunin; Carvajal, Rudiger, Nacho, Mendy, Valverde, Tchouameni, Kroos; Rodrygo, Bellingham, Vinicius

Subs: Kepa, Modric, Camavinga, Joselu, Ceballos, Garcia, Brahim, Guler, Martin, Paz, Tobias

Barcelona starts as XI: Pena; Kounde, Christensen, Kounde, Balde; De Jong, Pedri, Gundogan; Roberto, Lewandowski; Torres

Subs: Felix, Romeu, Roque, Astralaga, Yanal, Casado, Kochen, Fermin, Cubarsi, Guii, Fort
