Real and Atletico will meet in full-time confrontation in the fight for the Spanish Super Cup.
The first ever Super Bowl of Spain in this format is coming to an end. More precisely, the most interesting thing remains – the Madrid derby in the final. Of course, this is not el-classic, but it is still worth arguing which match would have turned out with great intensity. Recall that at the summer camp, Atletico mocked Real Madrid with a score of 7: 3. Is it time for revenge?
The teams have already met in this championship draw, but their match ended without goals. The semi-final match for Real ended in victory with a confident score. In addition, it is unlikely that the “creamy” left too much strength on the field. Real competently dealt with Valencia, once again showing a good implementation.
Real Madrid, however, can still unpleasantly surprise you with your game, as it was in the match with Getafe, when only the football gods helped the galactos achieve a crushing victory. In addition, Zinedine Zidane will again need to solve the personnel problem in the attack, which, however, normally played games against the Levantines.
The wards of Diego Simeone have not won trophies for a long time and, by all means, will make every effort to raise the title above their heads. The fight against Barcelona was incredibly difficult, and also took a huge amount of emotions, but because the “mattresses” may simply not be enough for the final confrontation.
However, it is worthwhile to understand that Atletico is an example of a cup fighter. At least Diego Simeone taught this. And even if the “mattresses” are no longer famous for such a monolithic defense, the feeling that they can gnaw out the desired result remains. Moreover, the victory in the tournament should significantly raise the mood in the team before the rest of the season.
As for the lineups for the match, we again expect that Atletico’s Koke will not appear from the first minutes. Zidane, however, cannot count on Azar, Benzema, and Bale. Compared with the previous match, we expect Rodrigo to make a couple of Jović in the attack, and Isko will not come out of the start.
It is noteworthy that in the match for the Super Bowl there will be neither the winner of La Liga, nor the winner of the Spanish Cup.
