Real Madrid vs Barcelona: Official Lineups

Real Madrid and Barcelona will face off in the Supercopa de España final on Wednesday, January 14, 2024, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The two teams met in the same final last season, with Barcelona winning 3-1.

Real Madrid

Carlo Ancelotti will be without David Alaba, Thibaut Courtois, Lucas Vázquez, and Éder Militão for the final. As a result, Andriy Lunin will start in goal, while Dani Carvajal, Antonio Rüdiger, Nacho Fernández, and Ferland Mendy will form the back four. Aurélien Tchouaméni will start in midfield alongside Federico Valverde and Toni Kroos, with Eduardo Camavinga and Luka Modrić on the bench. Jude Bellingham will play behind Vinicius Júnior and Rodrygo Goes.

Barcelona

Xavi Hernández will be without Jordi Alba, João Cancelo, Gavi, Nico González, Raphinha, and Marc-André ter Stegen for the final. As a result, Iñaki Peña will start in goal, while Jules Koundé, Ronald Araújo, Andreas Christensen, and Sergiño Dest will form the back four. Pedri, Frenkie de Jong, and Ilkay Gündogan will start in midfield, with Sergi Roberto playing on the front three with Robert Lewandowski and Ferran Torres.

Prediction

This is a tough game to call. Both teams have their strengths and weaknesses. Real Madrid have a better defense, but Barcelona have a better attack. In the end, I think it will come down to who can create the most chances. I’m going with a 2-1 win for Real Madrid.
