Barcelona vs. Real Madrid face on Wednesday in Riyadh in the semifinal of the Spain Supercup, in the first classic of Xavi Hernandez as a Barça coach in search of his first title at the helm of Barça. The Super Cup returns to Arabia two years after the merengue team beat Atlético on penalties in the 2020 final in Yedá, the 2021 edition being played in Spain due to the pandemic.
The trophy will play its third edition in its new four-way final format, which will face the second-placed merengue team in the last league against Barça, current Copa del Rey champions, in the first semifinal. On Thursday, Atlético de Madrid, current league champion, will face Athletic de Bilbao, finalist in the last Copa del Rey and winner of the 2021 Super Cup.
The 30,000 tickets have already been sold (slightly less than half the capacity of the stadium due to the pandemic) put on sale for Wednesday’s classic, the first official one played outside of Spain.
