As is now tradition, I guess, the Supercopa de Espana is a four-team tournament played in the middle of the season in Saudi Arabia. LaLiga’s winners and runners-up, as well as the two Copa del Rey finalists, travel over 3,000 miles east to battle it out for silverware.
Back in May, Real Betis defeated Valencia on penalties at Estadio de La Cartuja, thereby claiming the club’s first silverware for 17 years. Given that, and the fact los Verdiblancos have never won this competition, it would be a big deal if it is they who are hoisting the trophy aloft on Sunday night.
On Sunday, Manuel Pellegrini’s team enjoyed an impressive league victory over Rayo Vallecano; Luiz Henrique the match-winner at Vallecas. This leaves Beticos fourth, seeking to qualify for the Champions League for the first time since 2005.
Barcelona, meanwhile, moved three points clear at the top by beating Atlético Madrid on Sunday night.
Ousmane Dembelé's early strike the only goal of the night, as Xavi’s team held on for a vital victory at Cívitas Metropolitano. Xavi is still seeking his first silverware as Barca boss, beaten in the semi-finals of this competition by Real Madrid 12 months ago.
The Blaugrana are the record 13-times winners of this competition, although they’re yet to lift the trophy in the four-team tournament era. As Barca look to rediscover former glories, success in Sunday’s final would be a massive step in the right direction.
