Calendar of FC Barcelona

This Sunday, from the 20:00 hours, contests the final of the Supercopa of Spain between the Real Madrid and FC Barcelona in Saudi Arabia. The group trained by Carlo Ancelotti arrives after winning to Valencia in batch of penaltis after having remained 1-1 in the statutory time and extention, in a party in which they were not very hit and cost , again, of a big performance of Thibaut Courtois and the 'comeback' of Karim Benzema that is recovering his best version.

Against the Barça, without place to doubts, will not be sufficient that both are in his best level. The technician of Reggiolo already did reference to that need to show a version very convincente and improve the defensive facet, where more are failing. In spite of this, only expect three changes in the XI: Dani Carvajal by the lesionado Lucas Váquez, as well as Luka Modric by Eduardo Camavinga and Mendy by Nacho. To continuation, our forecast of the alignment:

Likely alignments of the Real Madrid-FC Barcelona

  • XI of the Real Madrid: Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Rüdiger, Mendy; Kroos, Valverde, Modric; Rodrygo, Benzema and Vinicius.
  • XI of the FC Barcelona: Ter Stegen, Araujo, Kounde, Christensen, Alba; Busquets, Gavi, Of Jong; Pedri, Dembélé and Lewandowski.

Thibaut Courtois

The Belgian goalkeeper has recovered in the last weeks his best version and is being, once again, the attendant to sustain to the Real Madrid under the three sticks. Against Valencia was the angel guardian of the madridistas, so much along the party as in the batch of penaltis. It will have to be very attentive to the approaches of, especially, Robert Lewandowski and Ousmane Dembélé.


In the defensive line is where more will have changes, because only they will repeat the two head offices: Rüdiger and Militãor. In the right side will go back to the titularity Dani Carvajal, after the injury that suffered Lucas Vázquez. Likewise, Nacho Fernández aims to return to the bench to give him the left band to Ferland Mendy, the one who has recovered of the annoyances that had suffered.


In the centre of the field, Luka Modric aims to be the only novelty. Against Valencia, had remained in the bench to give him gone in to Eduardo Camavinga, that finished said party with annoyances. Already it is recovered, but Carlo Ancelotti will bet by the Croat. It will lead the medullary beside Toni Kroos, of pivote, and Fede Valverde in the another extreme.


In the forward, the trainer of Reggiolo aims to repeat the same formula, with Rodrygo Goes to title by the right extreme to accompany to Karim Benzema, that will appear of '9' in paper, but that will go moving depending on the needs of the team. Vinicius Jr, that was very fallón against Valencia, will have to take a step forward.
