Real Madrid and Barcelona face off in the 2023 Spanish Supercup Final. This is the second El Clasico of the season, the first after the long World Cup break. It has the potential to be a decisive one, given that the winner could gain a lot of momentum for what’s going to be a tough season ahead.
Real Madrid predicted XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Militao, Rudiger, Mendy, Kroos, Valverde, Modric, Rodrygo, Vinicius, Benzema.
Barcelona predicted XI: Ter Stegen, Sergi Roberto, Araujo, Kounde, Alba, Busquets, Gavi, Pedri, Dembele, Raphinha, Lewandowski.
Real Madrid have lost Lucas Vazquez to an ankle injury and their depth at the defensive line is all but gone, with Nacho as the only backup available for all four spots. With Tchouameni out, Ancelotti will likely start Kroos, Valverde and Modric in the midfield, even though Camavinga featured in the starting lineup against Valencia. Rodrygo, Vinicius and Benzema will lead the offense and will try to improve their past performance.
