Barcelona have struggled in the domestic league this season. They are a massive 17 points behind leaders Real Madrid and are 6th place, although very much within striking distance of European places. Their latest setback was a 1-1 draw away at Granada where they conceded the equalizer with just a minute of normal time left on the clock.
Coach Xavi will be hoping there will be no hangovers from that game as they shift gears quickly from La Liga to a chance of silverware in the form of the Spanish Cup.
They’ll need to up their game against Real Madrid who have had their number on speed dial in their recent meetings including their league encounter that Real won at Camp Nou.
Stung by the pain of watching their cross-town rivals Atletico snatch the title away from them last season, Real Madrid have come back with a vengeance and dominated this season from the get-go. They eased to a 4-1 win over Valencia on Saturday with the red-hot Kareem Benzema starring for them yet again with a brace.
With the title race looking good so far for them, Los Bloncos have a chance to add to their 11 Super Cup titles here. They fell short last season, losing at this very stage to Athletic Bilbao.
They will however be pretty confident coming up against Barcelona having won their last 4 straight encounters including a 2-1 win at Camp Nou earlier in the season.
