The new Supercopa of Spain goes taking form, and this Monday the draw of the Federation decided which will be his semifinals. The FC Barcelona, current winner of LaLiga, will measure to an Athletic of Madrid that remained second in the championship of the regularity, whereas Valencia, that conquered the Glass of the King in front of the Catalans, will confront to a Real Madrid that went in like third of the First Division.

In the City Condal already look askance to a duel that will contest on 9 January, and in which his opponents will have a remarkable drop. It remains a lot for a crossing in which both will litigate for being in the final of the day 12, but when it treats to struggle by a title, any minimum advantage explains. The culés want to go in again in the history proclaiming champions with the renewed format of the competition.

Diego Simeone will not be in the crash against the Barcelona, and also would lose the hypothetical definite party in case that his pupilos attained the classification. The Argentinian drags a sanction from 2014 that rises to eight meetings of punishment. The 'Cholo' already cleared four of these commitments in LaLiga, but like the rojiblancos have not gone back to participate in the tournament copero, has four more pending.

It was penalty has his origin in the Supercopa of the quoted year, that the 'colchoneros' carried in front of the Real Madrid. After the 1-1 of the gone, the turn saldó with a 1-0 thanks to Mario Mandzukic, but the ex player was expelled in the first-half by his reiterated protests to the referees. "When one makes a mistake is just to pay it", assumed with integrity shortly after a derbi of the most intense.

After studying the record drafted by Fernández Borbalán, the Committee of Competition imposed him four parties by a slight sanction and other four by a grave, that attending to the normative had to fulfil of immediate form. This arrived for "striking in the head with the open hand to the fourth referee", whereas the another divided in two meetings for applauding ironically the decision of the trencilla and other two by not to leave to the changing room and remain in the just terracing behind the bench of his team.

The Barça will not have it easy to win to the Athletic

Although the absence of the technician is an important setback for the Athletic, the Barça knows that it will not have it easy to win, since his rival is one of the best groups of the planet and his recent clashes have been very equalised. The Catalans pretend to revalidate a title that Ernesto Valverde reached in his second attempt, imposing to the Seville a year after having lost in front of the Real Madrid.
