Barca prepare to meet Real Madrid in first leg of Spanish Supercup

Barca prepare to meet Real Madrid in first leg of Spanish Supercup

Tottenham Hotspur were believed to be circling at the start of 2017, and Isco regularly hinted to the press that he could leave Real Madrid at the end of the 2016-17 season. A contract could be 10 years, 20. I know where I am and what to do.

Something changed in the final months of the season, however, with Bale's injury problems handing Isco the chance to become a regular in the Real Madrid team.

The 33-year-old midfielder set alarms bells ringing at the Nou Camp on Thursday after Barcelona revealed that the captain didn't train with the rest of his teammates - just three days before the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup clash.

No matter where you are on the planet, you can see what channel the Real Madrid vs Barcelona match is available on here.

Thomas Vermaelen and Rafinha Alcantara are expected to be the only Barcelona absentees to face Real Madrid, with the latter having been out of action since undergoing a knee operation in April.

Zinedine Zidane has expressed his delight after confirming reports that he is to sign a new three-year contract as Real Madrid coach.

The Catalans are out there to make a strong statement after an underwhelming season and will want to beat their fierce rivals Real Madrid, the Spanish and European champions.

Lionel Messi، Jordi Alba، Samuel Umtiti and Arda Turan were all pictured training with their Barcelona team-mates as they aim to build up their fitness levels and sharpness ahead of the upcoming campaign.

"Real Madrid have very good midfielders, people who work hard and have a lot of quality".

Of course, that means that Real Madrid would have to win the head-to-head tiebreaker, given that goal difference is not the first tiebreaker in La Liga. Your best bet is to check who is showing the game in your country, and if they have an online service or iOS/Android app to watch it on.
