The Blaugrana’s game against La Real will take place on Wednesday while Athletic’s clash with Los Blancos will take place on Thursday. The final is scheduled to take place on Sunday at Seville’s La Cartuja stadium.
The Supercopa is contested by the winners and runners up of La Liga (Madrid and the Catalan giants respectively) alongside the winners and runners-up of the Copa del Rey (Athletic and La Real, although their final hasn’t been played yet due to the pandemic – as they await the return of fans to stadiums).
Madrid won the competition last season, beating Atletico Madrid in the final held at Jeddah in Saudi Arabia.
