Barcelona take on Athletic Club in the Spanish Super Cup Final, with a chance to pick up our first piece of silverware since April 2019. Ronald Koeman will know the importance of this fixture, and winning a trophy so early into his tenure at Barcelona would be a huge boost for himself and the squad. Check out the match preview for tomorrow’s massive final below:
Barcelona’s opponents will be Athletic Club, who of course beat Real Madrid to get here, and will as always prove stern opposition for the ‘Blaugrana’. Barcelona will be looking to replicate the sort of performance they put in against Athletic just 10 days ago, in our 3-2 victory over them at San Mamés.
However, much will depend on whether Lionel Messi is passed fit to start tomorrow, with the Argentine’s influence on the team crucial, especially in the final third, where Barça must take their chances.
