Barcelona take on Real Madrid tonight to begin the 2021/22 Supercopa de Espana tournament.
In the third year of the new Supercopa format, Copa del Rey champions Barcelona host LaLiga runners-up Madrid but are certainly not enjoying the better time of it as they meet in Riyadh.
New boss Xavi is yet to get fully to grips with the Catalans, who dropped points late on at Granada on the weekend to make it just five wins in his 11 games at the club.
By contrast, Real lead LaLiga by five points after a 4-1 romp past Valencia on the weekend.
The winners of Wednesday’s semi-final will face Athletic Club or Atletico Madrid in Sunday’s final.
