Barcelona face Osasuna in the semi-finals of the Spanish Super Cup. Here are the predicted lineups for both teams!
Winner of last year’s competition with a controlled final against Real Madrid, Barcelona are keen to retain their title this year. But before they can think about Sunday’s final, the defending Spanish champions will need to get past Osasuna in the semi-finals, who were last year’s Copa del Rey runners-up, losing to Real Madrid.
Here are the predicted lineups for both teams!
Barcelona: Pena; Kounde, Araujo, Christensen, Balde; Roberto, De Jong, Gundogan; Raphinha, Torres, Lewandowski
Osasuna: Herrera; Areso, D. Garcia, Catena, Pena; Moncayola, Torro, Oroz; Arnaiz, Gomez, Budimir
Barcelona are the clear favorites to win this match. They have a much stronger squad than Osasuna.
The key for Barcelona will be to control the midfield. Osasuna have a strong midfield, led by Moncayola. If Barcelona can control the midfield, they will be able to create chances for their strikers, Lewandowski and Torres.
Osasuna will be looking to make the most of their chances. They have a good chance of scoring on the counter-attack, especially if they can get the ball to Budimir.
This is a difficult match for Osasuna, but they have a chance of winning if they play their best football.
