The Spanish Super Cup kicks off with a massive fixture in Riyadh this weekend as Barcelona take on Real Madrid in El Clasico on Wednesday. These two Spanish giants have had contrasting fortunes this year and will be looking to win this game.
Barcelona are currently in sixth position in the La Liga standings, and have not been at its best this season. Although the Catalans have shown improvement under Xavi, they were held to a disappointing draw by Granada at the weekend.
Real Madrid, however, are currently at the top and have been very impressive this year. Los Blancos defeated Valencia by a 4-1 margin and will be confident going into this fixture.
Barcelona vs Real Madrid Head-to-Head
Real Madrid have a slight edge over Barcelona and have won 99 out of 247 matches played between the two teams. Real Madrid has won 96 of the 96 Barcelona victories and Barcelona will be looking to reduce that deficit on Wednesday.
Real Madrid won 2-1 in October’s previous meeting between these two La Liga teams. Barcelona were outplayed in the match and have a point to prove in this fixture.
