The Spanish Super Cup begins tomorrow, Wednesday, with a confrontation between Real Sociedad and Barcelona, ​​before Real Madrid meets his counterpart Athletic Bilbao the next day.

4 teams are participating in the Super Cup for the second consecutive season after the Spanish Football Association changed the tournament list.

The list provides for the participation of the two champions of La Liga and the Copa del Rey and the runners-up of each, allowing Barcelona to appear, the La Liga’s runners-up well as the two finalists of the Cup, Sociedad, and Bilbao.

An exceptional participation

The last version witnessed Real Madrid’s participation despite not winning any title, as well as not being runners-up to any of the two champions.

The King team’s participation in the Super Cup came after Barcelona won the La Liga title and the latter as a runner-up for the cup champion.

Atletico Madrid had finished the 2018-2019 season as runners-up to the La Liga champion, while Valencia won the Cup, so Real Madrid did not have the right to participate.

What allowed the Merengue to participate in the tournament was the presence of Barca in the final of the cup and winning the Liga title at the same time, so the Spanish Federation decided to involve the third League to complete the square of the teams present in the tournament.

Real Madrid Super Cup

The Spanish capital team benefited from Barcelona’s gift by winning its first match against Valencia, before defeating Atlético in the final match, to clinch the title after it was the only team not entitled to be in the Super.

Real Madrid scenario

Although Barcelona participates in the current version as the Spanish League champion’s runner-up, he hopes to emulate Real Madrid’s scenario a little.

Barca participates in this version without being crowned La Liga and the King’s Cup, but he may eventually follow in the footsteps of his opponent.

Real’s crowning of the supertitle in the last version came after its zero season, which witnessed its exit empty-handed without winning any local or continental title.

This is similar to the Blaugrana exit last season without titles, as he left the King’s Cup early and lost La Liga to Real Madrid. Simultaneously, it was subjected to a humiliating elimination from the Champions League by losing (2-8) from Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals.

That zero season would not be an obstacle for Lionel Messi’s teammates to go towards lifting the Spanish Super Cup this year, in the same way, that Real Madrid did last season.
