Real Madrid will be hosting close-town rivals Atletico Madrid in the opening semi-finals of the Spanish Supercopa de Espana.
Real has been a formidable force in recent games and would like to extend that streak as they hope to meet either Barcelona or Osasuna in the final of the competition. They’ll be aiming to recapture the trophy after their defeat to Barca in last year’s final.
On the other hand, Atletico Madrid is eager to reach the final, a feat they haven’t achieved since their loss to Madrid in the inaugural title decider of the expanded Super Cup back in 2019-20. Diego Simeone’s men might face a real uphill battle in their bid to mount a title charge this season.

Atletico wins – 56
Draws – 53
Hosts Madrid will still be without keeper Thibaut Courtois who is sidelined for the entire season due to a cruciate ligament injury. Joining him on the sidelines are Ferland Mendy, Eder Militao, and David Alaba, all ruled out due to injuries. Coach Ancelotti has cooled down fears that midfielder Eduardo Camavinga might be out for the rest of the season and expects the player to play a part.
Atleti will be without several crucial players. Thomas Lemar, the attacking midfielder, and Pablo Barrios, the central midfielder, are sidelined due to Achilles tendon rupture and meniscus damage, respectively. Additionally, the absence of left winger Vitolo, nursing a knee injury, further adds to the team’s depleted lineup for the game.
Probable Line Up
Real Madrid XI: Arrizabalaga (GK), Garcia, Rudiger, Camavinga, Vazquez; Modric, Kroos, Valverde; Bellingham; Rodrygo, Diaz
Atletico Madrid XI: Oblak (GK), Lino, Witsel, Molina; Gimenez, Azpilicueta, Paul, Griezmann, Koke; Riquelme, Morata
Real Madrid might have an edge due to their strong offensive capabilities, however, Atletico is known for their solid defensive structure and ability to capitalize on counterattacks. This promises to be a closely contested game and goals shouldn’t be flowing freely.
