Atleti will put the improvement of the Basque team to the test, which in the semifinals of the last Super Cup reached half-time with a 2-0 favorable and ended up beating Real Madrid 2-1. The recent precedents against the colchoneros are encouraging for Athletic, defeated in just one of the last four games between the two (W1, E2, P1).
Qualified for the 38th edition of the Super Cup as a finalist in the Copa del Rey 2020-21, Athletic seeks to break the odds again and win its second consecutive supercoparo title. Although he is having an irregular trajectory in the current LL championship (9th), Marcelino’s team can face the semifinal with optimism. Following an eight-game winless streak, the Lions have won three of their last five games (W3, E1, P1).
The fight for the league championship already seems like a chimera for Atleti, and the Cholo Simeone team will try to reach their second final in the last three editions and become the third winner of the competition with the final format of four. Under the command of Simeone, the colchoneros have won or tied in 87% of their duels against Athletic (G16, E4, P3).
The second semifinal of the Spanish Super Cup faces Atlético de Madrid in Riyadh with the defending Athletic Club. Atleti, current champion of LaLiga Santander (LL), faces the big crash after adding a point away from Villarreal (2-2), a match whose score was opened by Ángel Correa with a sensational goal from midfield.
