Tip Barcelona - Real Madrid
The pre-season games are nearly over and finally after this game, we can get on with the real business. Real Madrid won the European Super Cup on Tuesday with a 2-1 win over Manchester United and looked to be just about ready for the season ahead and still only played Ronaldo for the last seven minutes.These two sides have already met once in pre-season in the International Champions Cup with Barcelona winning 3-2. This is the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup so that'll be three meetings before the league season begins, at least we have to wait till December for the first league game. Barcelona have of course been busy with overpriced transfer negotiations and are battling to sign Coutinho after losing Neymar. It's not hurting them too much on the pitch though with no losses in pre-season and overall 11 wins out of the last 12 they have played Just how strong teams will be played and how many substitutions is a worry so go for both teams to score.
