Match Preview


The 37th Supercopa de Espana kicks off on Wednesday evening as Real Sociedad face off against Barcelona in the first semi-final at the Nuevo Arcangel.

Imanol Alguacil's men go into the game following a 3-2 defeat to Sevilla in La Liga, whereas Barcelona continued their rise up the table with a 4-0 win over Granada.

Real Sociedad have simply capitulated in recent weeks and are slowly slipping away from the title-chasing pack amid an abysmal run of form.
The Whites and Blues can only boast a mere one win from their last 12 in all competitions - a 1-0 triumph over Athletic Bilbao on New Year's Eve - and Sevilla were indebted to Youssef En-Nesyri as his hat-trick condemned Sociedad to their fifth league defeat of the campaign at the weekend.
Alguacil's men were the only team in the top six to lose at the weekend and now find themselves eight points behind leaders Atletico Madrid having played four games more, but they now have a two-week break from league action as cup competitions take centre stage.
This is only the second time that the Supercopa de Espana has involved four teams, and Sociedad won the inaugural edition of the tournament in 1982 - defeating Real Madrid 4-1 on aggregate over a two-legged final.
Sociedad and Barca will be battling for the chance to meet either Real Madrid or Athletic in Sunday's final, and while Alguacil's side may not feel at all confident about claiming a rare win here, they can look forward to a Copa del Rey clash with third-tier Cordoba next week
With wantaway talisman Lionel Messi now firing on all cylinders, Barcelona are flying high and needed no second invitation to cruise past an inconsistent Granada at the weekend.
Messi struck twice while Antoine Griezmann netted a brace of his own to stretch La Blaugrana's unbeaten streak to eight matches, with six of those games ending in wins for Barcelona - four of which have come away from home.
Ronald Koeman's side have travelled to unfamiliar territory and come out on top three times in a row in 2021, and Barca now find themselves third in the La Liga table - four points behind Atletico, who have played three fewer matches
La Blaugrana's 2019-20 Supercopa de Espana attempt ended at the first hurdle as Atletico knocked them out in the semi-finals in Saudi Arabia, but they have won this competition a record 13 times down the years as well as collecting 10 runner-up medals
Goals from Jordi Alba and Frenkie de Jong saw Barca scrape past Sociedad 2-1 in their most recent meeting last month, and La Blaugrana have not lost to their semi-final opponents since April 2016.
