PREVIEW | SPANISH SUPER CUP 1º LEG | REAL MADRID - FC BARCELONA

SPANISH FOOTBALL starts its new season with "Football Fireworks" tonight, when REAL MADRID ( Spanish Cup winners) plays FC BARCELONA ( Liga winners) in the 1ºst leg of the SPANISH SUPER CUP. The kick off is at the "Santiago Bernabeu" stadium in Madrid at 22.00 hours with more than 100 countries tuning in via satellite for their TV audiences.

Real Madrid are favourites for the 1º st leg as they come into this match better prepared with a prefect pre-season ( 7 victories in 7 games ) & players in top form. While FC Barcelona are less prepared, with players under the injury "cloud" & with some players recently incorporating themselves from their break. The Barcelona "tactic" is to go away tonight with as little damage as possible done - if at all Real Madrid can manage to do some damage - to shut things up definitely
 next week in the 2º leg return game at "Camp Nou". Or Barça may run over Madrid in the 1º st leg...

The starting line-up on the Real Madrid front is fairly clear with the only doubt for Coach Mourinho if he puts in Di Maria ahead of Coentrao. While the Barça line-up has more 
unknowns, especially in defence, & if new signing Aleixis Sanchez will be included from the initial kick-off.

Below Spanish Sports paper, Sport, has whipped up this interesting infograph with possible line-ups & other info. Note, that the line-ups are speculations & will not be 100% known & final until close to the kick-off
