PREVIEW | SPANISH SUPER CUP 2º LEG | REAL MADRID - FC BARCELONA STARTING 11 LINE-UPS

SPANISH FOOTBALL again goes on the World stage tonight at 23.00hrs Sp local time when FC BARCELONA hosts REAL MADRID in the - & definitive - leg of the Spanish Super Cup Final. The 1ºst leg finished 2 - 2 & the title is up for grabs tonight as Real Madrid must score & Barça has the away goal advantage. The kick off time is late, but this is due to the fact that the UEFA Champions League preliminaries take place tonight & the Spanish Super Cup cannot coincide with these games.

Spanish Sports
paper "Marca" put this diagram on their front cover today & also gave their idea of the possible starting 11 teams for both sides:



FC Barcelona: Valdes, Alves, Mascherano, Pique, Abidal, Busquets, Iniesta, Xavi, Alexis, Messi & Villa.

According to the papers "expert journalists", Busquets, Pique & Xavi come in from the start thus strengthening key areas, especially the midfield. There is talk that Cesc Fabregas may get some minutes if things are favourable for Barça towards the end. 



Real Madrid: Casillas, Ramos, Pepe, Carvalho, Marcelo, Khedira, Xabi Alonso, Coentrao, Ozil , Ronaldo & Benzema.

The observers are pretty confident Coentrao will start ahead of Di Maria. However, some media sources speak of a possible big surprise,  like Higuain starting ahead of Benzema. This is because at the last training session the Argentine looked to be part of the starting 11 set-up.



In any case, these ARE NOT the final line-ups & are totally speculative.

LATEST : Coentrao in for Marcelo at Real Madrid, Alexis on the bench with Pedro starting for FCB.
